It’s an idyllic late-summer day in Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is fly-fishing with his two daughters when he stumbles upon the mutilated body of a moose. Whatever or whoever attacked the animal was ruthless: half the animal’s face has been sliced away, the skin peeled back from the flesh. Shaken by the sight, Joe starts to investigate what he hopes is an isolated incident.
Days later, Joe discovers a small herd of mutilated cattle. Local authorities are quick to label the attacks the work of a grizzly bear, but Joe knows otherwise. The cuts on the moose and the cattle were too clean, too precise, to have been made by jagged teeth. Are the animals only practice for a killer about to move on to another, more challenging prey?
Soon afterward, Joe’s worst fears are confirmed. The bodies of two men are found within hours of each other, in separate locations, their wounds eerily similar to those found on the moose and cattle. There’s a vicious killer, a modern-day Jack the Ripper, on the loose in Saddlestring - and it appears his rampage is just beginning.

An i excellent read

What did you like most about Trophy Hunt?

the relationship joe has with work, his wife and nate

What did you like best about this story?

all the books about joe pickett and his friend nate are gripping from the start but at the same time, its like you live there and they are old friends you become comfortable with.

What about David Chandler’s performance did you like?

I have enjoyed every book he has narrated. I have listened to all of the ones in this series an countless others, just because he read them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
