U.S. Fish and Wildlife Special Agent Gedimin Bulatt is in Thailand for a conference when a party of illegal hunters are discovered by local forestry rangers, leaving four rangers dead and his friend and fellow officer gravely wounded. This begins Bulatt's search for the members of that illegal hunting party culminating in a climax in the wilderness of Washington state, where a rogue geneticist has created creatures resembling mammoths to be killed by these rich men. Bulatt finds himself targeted, while he and his companion seek to gain evidence needed to arrest the illegal hunters and their ruthless guides.

"Ken Goddard is a Field and Stream Tom Clancy." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Goddard nicely combines our instinctive fear of things glimpsed at the corner of the eye with the mind's rational habit of assembling evidence...." (Tom Perry)
"Goddard has a keen sense of how to hold the reader." (Clive Cussler)
My time was not wasted but the story lacked excitement which is unfortunate given the subject matter. The character development was pretty anemic. When you don’t really “bond” with the main character the book loses its appeal. The best part of the book is the premise. Somehow the execution does not live up to its potential and I do not fault the narrator. It is clear Mr. Goddard is passionate about the subject and the technical portions are spot on but the writing needed to be fleshed out more. All-in-all not bad but it could have been better.
