When a young woman is killed by a bear while on a camping trip with her boyfriend Professor Theo Cray gets involved. The woman had once been a student of his. Theo is not convinced that it was an animal, he's positive that a man did this. A man killing like an animal would kill.
In an attempt to prove his theory he begins to look for other animal killings that have gone unsolved. When he locates the body of a woman previously assumed missing, he becomes the prime suspect until the police determine that it was another animal killing.
Cray is now driven to find more. With the help of a sophisticated computer program and his biological background he discovers more. Upon meeting an anthropologist with information dating back to the 1980's of an attack by maybe a mountain lion, maybe a man dressed up like a mountain lion. Cray now thinks he's found this murderers beginnings.
This book starts out a little slow as you get background info, it increasingly speeds up until it like a roller coaster and by the end... forget it! This is a downward spiral with nail biting, stomach twisting suspense! I absolutely love books like this and listened to it in one day.
Will Damron does a fantastic job narrating. I don't think anyone could possibly do any better.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!

I'm going to admit, I give 5 stars to stories pretty easily. As someome who bas done many literature courses, I don't give my reviews just because it was or was not in my interest are. I will give a boom 5 starts if the stroy kept me engaged, was unique and had redeaming qualities. You have to judge a book by its actual contents, not just if it's the type of book you normally like.
That said, I almost never leave written reviews unless I feel a book has done something to stand apart. Without trying to give spoilers, I feel this book kept me guessing and went outside of any normal murder/death mystery I'm used to. This was refreshing and kept making me think and guess the whole way through.
I go through at least 1-2 audio books a week and this one kept me thinking, interested and guessing the whole way through.
If you have gone through any of the murder mysteries that sound ingesting to you, give this a try.

I loved everything about this book. It had me gripped from the start and I genuinely didn’t want it to end. I enjoy Jack Reacher/John Milton characters but this nerdy bioinformatics professor is right up there with them. I loved his unusual thought processes and felt his frustration when others didn’t make the mental leaps that he did. Can’t wait for Book 2.
A brilliant narrator enhanced the pleasure.
