Wildlife biologist Summer "Sam" Westin is working on a 12 week project for the National Park Service at Olympic National Park. One night while working as a volunteer fire watcher she hears an explosion and sees fire light up the sky. When the fire is finally extinguished a body is discovered among the embers. It is a young woman who was working on the park's trail crew and she is found to still be clinging to life.
Sam has so many questions starting with who started the fire? That question leads her on a trail that has to be followed carefully to be believed while finding who truly is behind this violence.
Wow, this is one of those stories where you need to fasten your seat belts and hold on tight!
Sam Westin is a strong woman. A woman who loves nature and animals and fights to protect both. The author definitely writes what she knows so I believe she has the same characteristics. She has a true gift of writing what she knows in such a way that is engaging, entertaining and thought provoking. Sam is truly dedicated and continues to put herself in danger to get to the truth, especially when others tell her to back off. She has a tender heart and a strong will, both of which can get her in trouble.
The book is full of suspense but it offers so much more. The author has a way of describing the setting that places you right there on the trail or in the watch tower with all the splendor surrounding you. You can almost feel the ground move as a herd of elk pass by, smell the smoke from the fire, or feel the lake water wash over you as you take a quick dip. I actually escaped into this book and right into Olympic National Park and all it's glory.
Pamela Beason has created a wonderful mystery, in a spectacular place, with wonderful characters and takes us on a wild ride.
