Publisher's Summary

A summer at his grandparents' South Dakota ranch is not 11-year-old Cooper Sullivan's idea of a good time. But things are a bit more bearable now that he's discovered the neighbor girl, Lil Chance, and her homemade batting cage. Even horseback riding isn't as awful as Coop thought it would be. Each year, with Coop's annual summer visit, their friendship deepens from innocent games to stolen kisses, but there is one shared experience that will forever haunt them: the terrifying discovery of a hiker's body.

As the seasons change and the years roll, Lil stays steadfast to her dreams of becoming a wildlife biologist and protecting her family land, while Coop struggles with his father's demand that he attend law school and join the family firm. Twelve years after they walked together hand in hand, fate has brought them back to the Black Hills when people and things they hold most dear need them most.

An investigator in New York, Coop recently left his fast-paced life to care for his aging grandparents and the ranch he has come to call home. Though the memory of his touch still haunts her, Lil has let nothing stop her dream of opening the Chance Wildlife Refuge, but something . . . or someone . . . has been keeping a close watch. When small pranks and acts of destruction escalate into the heartless killing of Lil's beloved cougar, recollections of an unsolved murder in these very hills have Coop springing to action to keep Lil safe.

Lil and Coop both know the natural dangers that lurk in the wild landscape of the Black Hills. But now they must work together to unearth a killer of twisted and unnatural instincts who has singled them out as prey.

    "Very good listening"

    The only thing I did not care for in this book was the amount of curse words. The story would be a better story without all the foul language and then it would be more appropriate to listen to when there are children present.

    "Worth a listen"

    I am not a huge fan of Nora Roberts. But i have read a few books of hers. About as many as i have hated i have liked, so i keep her as a back up when i am looking for something to kill time. Black Hills i think is the best book i have read by her. Which is funny because one of my complaints about her is she is unoriginal. Which this title proves since it is in essence Montana Sky. It is like she wanted a "redo" on Montana Sky and came up with this one instead. The character/ plot developement seemed much more thought out than some of her other titles. While it wasnt a "keep you guessing" mystery, it was well conceived. The narrator is also good. Not the best book i have ever read but it is the best Nora Roberts.

    "loved this book"

    I loved the relationship between the two main characters as children and it only gets better as they get older. The story really draws you in building the suspense until the end.

    "Mark - Road Warrior"

    I listen to books as I travel, and as a guy I loved story-line. I felt the reading could be better. There are much better readers out there. Jim Dale from Harry Potter for example is great reader with many inflections in his voice. However, don't let that detract you from listening to it. I had no problem visualizing the area and wild life sanctuary in my head. I sure would like to vote for a sequel to this book. A+
