From the New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy: Code of Honor (The Jack Ryan Universe) comes the first in the acclaimed Arliss Cutter series set in the beautiful and deadly wilds of Alaska.
“A double-barreled blast of action.”
“Cameron’s books are riveting page turners.”
U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter is a born tracker. After enlisting in the military, fighting in the Middle East, and working three field positions for Marshal Services, Cutter is sent to the icy wastelands of southeast Alaska. Three people have disappeared on Prince of Wales Island.
Two are crew members of the reality TV show, Alaska Adventure Jobs. The other is a Tlingit Indian girl who had the misfortune of witnessing their murders. Cutter’s job is to find the bodies, examine the crew’s footage for clues, and track down the men who killed them. Easier said than done. Especially when the whole town is hiding secrets, the trail leads to a dead end—and the hunter becomes the prey . . .
This terrific series launch from bestseller Cameron (the Jericho Quinn thrillers) introduces Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter, a skilled tracker. Now a part of the Fugitive Task Force, Cutter is assigned to Alaska, where one of his first assignments takes him and his partner, Deputy Lola Fontaine, to the town of Craig on Prince of Wales Island to bring in Hayden Starne on sexual assault and kidnapping charges. When teenager Millie Burkett goes missing, the search for Starne gains added urgency. Meanwhile, Craig is turned upside down by a crew filming FISHWIVES!, a reality show about local fishermen. The stakes rise when a sadistic Mexican cartel boss kidnaps the show's producer and her cameraman boyfriend. Cutter and Fontaine are soon awash in possible perpetrators and dead bodies. Cameron, who has nearly three decades in law enforcement and a stint as a U.S. marshal, keeps all these plot points delicately balanced and at the same time creates sympathetic heroes, depraved villains, and nail-biting action. Readers will eagerly await his next.)\n
New author for me. Enjoyed it. Started a little slow as things developed but liked it as it progressed. I may have just found a new series.
I had been looking for a new series to read. This book was a good start. The characters were all believe able and the author was very good about details. Starting the second one now.
Great storyline. Great characters. It kept me coming back until I made it to the end. My goal is to read 5 minutes a day. I zoomed past it trying to get it read. Could easily be turned into a movie.
