Overview

From 1974 to 2004, Lucinda Delaney Schroeder was one of a handful of women who were special agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In August 1992, she accepted an assignment that forever changed—and endangered—her life. Leaving her husband and seven-year-old daughter behind in Wisconsin, she posed as a big-game hunter in Alaska in order to infiltrate an international ring of poachers out for trophy wildlife. A Hunt for Justice recounts her dramatic story, which she was not legally permitted to write about until her retirement in 2004, the same year she appeared on the A&E television network to discuss the operation. In 2009 her story appeared on Investigation Discovery. More than simply an adventure or true-crime tale, it's a story of a woman surviving in a male-dominated field, a woman against the wilderness, and a wife and mother risking it all for a cause she believes in.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's a true story that reads like a mystery."--Tony Hillerman, best-selling author of the Joe Leaphorn series. "A Hunt for Justice is a superb, true-life mystery that raises important issues about the protection of Alaskan wildlife and those criminals who would destroy it. An exceptional debut and a riveting page-turner destined to win Lucinda Delaney Schroeder well deserved praise." --Michael McGarrity, best-selling author of the Kevin Kerney novel series. "A suspenseful page-turner and a tale of true courage, A Hunt for Justice should be read by everyone who cares about wildlife as well as every woman who has struggled for recognition in a male-dominated culture."--Ted Kerasote, author of Bloodties: Nature, Culture, and the Hunt "...Schroeder illuminates an unusual, insular world with unflinching grit and good humor."--Publishers Weekly "…an exciting true-crime tale."--Booklist (American Library Association) "If you only read one book this year, this should be it. Packed with suspense and mystery, it follows a female undercover agent who places herself in a remote Alaskan hunting camp full of outlaws -- outlaws who would kill her in a heartbeat if they learned her true identity. You won't be able to put this riveting book down once you start reading it. It's hard to believe it's not fiction." --Jim Zumbo, Hunting Editor, OUTDOOR LIFE
