Publisher's Summary

When two lowlifes rob a gas station, murder the attendant, and then incinerate bystanders who are filling up their minivan, the Manceford County, North Carolina, police quickly arrest the killers at a nearby motel.But a stubborn judge throws out the case, because the suspects were not read their rights, leaving Sheriff Bobby Lee Baggett and Lieutenant Cam Richter to face the anger of the victims' families.Soon thereafter, a mysterious e-mail arrives in the department: a link to a video of one of the murderers being executed in a homemade electric chair, ending with a voice announcing, "That's one". The shocking video spreads throughout the Internet, drawing the attention of local, state, and federal authorities, and national media, and putting intense pressure on Bobby Lee and Cam to find the vigilante before he claims his second victim.Assigned to head the search, Cam finds himself resented by some of his fellow officers and subtly threatened by others. His job is further complicated by the fact that the offending judge is also his ex-wife, and now - after years apart, and an uneasy reconciliation - his sometime lover. Cam's questions lead him to a remote mountain area in western North Carolina and a group of daredevils who call themselves "the cat dancers" - so named because they have tracked the last wild mountain lions in the region to their dens, where they have photographed the animals face-to-face, or died trying. Cam must hunt this group and the cats they seek, or become their next target.


What the Critics Say

"Well-drawn characters, intelligent, realistic dialogue and top-notch writing....Petrified readers will be checking under the bed and in the closets for any panthers that may have crept inside while they were glued to the pages." (Publishers Weekly)
"Reader Dick Hill brings the best in voice and vocal variety to this effort. His voice is as rough as a raging river, as soft as falling snow - a perfect match for this engaging story." (AudioFile)

So many books are advertised as being suspenseful, or thrillers, but do not deliver on that promise. This book does. My husband and I listen together, and we sat up late several nights glued to our Kindle waiting to see what would happen. Dick Hill's performance is outstanding. If you enjoy action books, this one is highly recommended

Totally Wonderful

I have read all of the Cam Richter series to date. I would recommend reading them in order of when they were written. The Cat Dancers, Spider Mountain, The Moonpool, Firefly, Nightwalkers.

These are great murder mysteries. Wish they were about 10 hours longer each. Reading a series with a central character is my favorite thing. These are incredibly well done and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Not a bad one in the bunch. The central characters' (Cam Richter)life changes and some things are a continuance, hence reading in order is a good thing although all authors seem to think that it doesn't matter. I will read each of these books more than once or twice. Deutermann is a great author. I've read about 5 or 6 others not in this series and they are great as well.
