Ex-Delta Force Davis Holland, now an agent for Customs and Border Protection, has seen it all. But nothing in his experience has prepared him for what he and the local sheriff find one freezing night in the Minnesota woods.
Investigating reports of an illegal border crossing, the two men stumble across a blood-drenched scene of mass murder, barely escaping with their lives... and a single clue to the mayhem: a small wooden chest placed at the heart of the massacre. Something deadly has entered Holland's territory, crossing the border from nightmare into reality.
When news of the atrocity reaches wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severance, he sends a three-person team north to investigate. Not long ago, the members of that team - Ben McKelvie, Lindsay Clark, and Alex Standingcloud - were nearly killed by a vengeful shapeshifter. Now they are walking wounded, haunted by gruesome memories that make normal life impossible. But there is nothing normal about the horror that awaits in the Northwoods.
"With its vivid descriptions and realistic but sympathetic characterizations, Northwoods will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned." (New York Journal of Books)

I loved it!
While this is direct sequel to The Beast Of Barcroft, the author has upped his game tremendously. And while Beast was quite good, Northwoods is Great! We have many of the same players here and a few new ones.
The battle on the lake and the "cavalry" arriving.
Yes actually. What happens to Gus and then Ben. That's all I can say without spoilers.
I have already pre-ordered the third book in this series and am hoping for many more. But the series needs some way of identifying it so that we can direct more people to it. A very well done novel and well worth seeking out.
