Read an Excerpt

The skinny dude looked frightened. "I think my boot's stuck," he whimpered.

The bear took another swipe, this time catching the edge of the guy's jeans. They tore easily. The bear grunted deep in his chest. Now the terror stood out on the skinny dude's face.

Hunting is popular with some, but most who hunt do so for the sport and end up making use of the animals they kill for food and the occasional mounted trophy. This is not true of poachers. They are out for one thing and one thing only - MONEY! Robyn, Nick, and Trevor are amateur sleuths, and when they hear about the discovery of an unexplained dead bear in a nearby woods, they are on the case. The odd thing about the bear's remains is that its gall bladder is missing. It appears that the killer had expert knowledge about the anatomy of bears because the gall bladder was removed very carefully. Being interested in the environment and the survival of endangered animals, the three teens are anxious to find out who is responsible for the senseless killing. Using their observation skills and boldly asking questions, they track down three men from Virginia who seem to be likely suspects. Little do they know that when they begin digging deeper, they will find a very unlikely person connected to the crime. BEAR MARKET is a fast-paced, who-dun-it type story. At just over 100 pages, it is excellent for reluctant readers. The subject matter involving illegal hunting and the preservation of endangered animals should also appeal to readers looking for a quick read.
