Overview

"The Girl Who Cried Wolf...is a swift thriller and a wickedly funny satire of the more fuzzyheaded wing of the environmental movement."
- The Seattle Times


Getting kidnapped on a visit to Seattle wasn't in Remy Brandt's agenda. A tightly-wound L.A. entertainment attorney, Remy has meetings to take and orders to give, but the three knucklehead environmentalists who snatch her have other plans. Remy wakes up in the middle of a national forest, resting on a platform strung between the branches of a gigantic cedar tree. The kidnappers demand that her hedgefund-manager father deed over his old growth timber holdings. Remy demands a triple-espresso and a bowl of fresh raspberries. It gets worse. Her father is dodging subpoenas for insider trading and can't be reached. Her boyfriend, left for dead by the kidnappers, can't get the FBI interested because at age 16, Remy faked her own kidnapping, and ran off with the pool boy. It's up to the boyfriend, an ex-cop with a short temper, to find her. The kidnappers should be worried about him... they should be even more worried about Remy.


"What is distinctive about Ferrigno's gripping action is that it is often set in a natural world whose appeal he makes the reader vividly feel."
-New York Times

"Kinky-to-the-max. Ferrigno can make you afraid, he can make you laugh, and he can make you keep turning the pages."
-The Washington Post Book World

"Ferrigno has a gift for creating confrontations of high impact and his dialogue bites hard. He balances the tough doings with a strong sense of moral outrage and compassion."
-Los Angeles Times Book Review

An awesomely good writer."
-Elmore Leonard

"I never miss a book by Robert Ferrigno."
-Michael Connelly

Meet the Author

A former college professor, professional poker player and newspaper reporter, Robert Ferrigno is the author of thirteen thrillers. His first novel, The Horse Latitudes, was called "the fiction debut of the season" by Time magazine, although, to be fair, it was only May. A New York Times best-seller, his work has been nominated for an Edgar award, Best Novel, by the Mystery Writers of America, and awarded a Silver Dagger for Best Short Story by the Crime Writers Association of Great Britain. His books have been published in eighteen foreign languages, including Russian, Chinese, German, and Arabic, none of which Ferrigno can read. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his family, working in the videogames industry and writing novels. He would like to lose twenty pounds and find a near-mint copy of Space Western #2 at a garage sale.

    This book is a really good read

    My first time reading this author. I have to say I'm impressed. The characters are really thought out. The ending a little predictable but boy was this good. Everyone got what they deserved.

    Funny--but with environmental message

    I knew I'd enjoy this book just by the description, and I did. Just as T.C. Boyle writes about quirky characters in California, and Carl Hiassen and Dave Barry do in Florida, so does Ferrigno in The Girl Who Cried Wolf. Although there are some deaths along the way, the story still is a comedy with some tragic overtones. This book did not disappoint, especially with its message about trashing the environment.

    Very Entertaining

    This book was very entertaining. The characters were very amusing and it kept me interested until the very end. Kind of predictable but still a great read.

    THE GIRL WHO CRIED WOLF by Robert Ferrigno is an outrageous, sar

    THE GIRL WHO CRIED WOLF by Robert Ferrigno is an outrageous, sardonic
    romp through the rainforests with idiots on both sides of the story’s
    moral watershed. It takes time to read 326 pages, so what one thinks
    about the characters changes, the bad- and good- guys mutate into
    something else.

    Robert Ferrigno is a highly talented storyteller. He takes us derisively
    through preposterous ecological positions, then we burst out laughing,
    then we stumble upon something distressingly sad. Though he’s made the
    eco-terrorists a laughing stock, he manages to pull off some real
    appreciation for just how badly humans have endangered the earth. Lots
    of philosophical vignettes are jammed in there alongside tongue-in-cheek
    wacky characters who remain passionately self-centred.

    THE GIRL WHO CRIED WOLF is a book one would like to keep thinking about.
    Unlike a physical book where one has the picture on the cover to contain
    one’s interaction with the story, an ebook provides only a glimpse at
    some artwork at the beginning; there’s nothing to focus one’s thoughts
    around, no image to ponder what it means about the parts unread, nothing
    to trigger memory later. For visual persons, this is a big drawback of
    ebooks; one hopes future ebook designers will develop ways to display
    the cover image each time the book is re-opened. This is a book which
    would benefit from such an anchor.

    It’s sheer luck that I encountered Robert Ferrigno’s writing, but having
    done so, I’ll be back, again and again.

    THE GIRL WHO CRIED WOLF is a wonderful, riveting story.

    Carl Hiaasen Light

    Somewhat like Hiaasen's writing, so if you like his books you should like this one.
