Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: On a conservation study in northern Alberta, field technician Marian Engström found her true calling: training rescue dogs to help track endangered or threatened wildlife. Under the tutelage of experienced handler Tate Mathias, Marian felt her future opening up. After Tate is killed in a bear attack, Marian finds herself questioning everything when inconsistencies surface, linking Tate to the murders of four women over six years. Working with a retired forensic profiler who was never able to close the cases, Marian relives her every moment with Tate, desperately hoping to clear his name. And as she circles ever closer to the truth, evil stalks her every move. -- adapted from jacket

    Les Becquets (Breaking Wild, 2016) gets inside the minds of two determined but broken characters: Marian Engström, an insecure young woman who tracks wildlife in the frozen expanses of northern Alberta, and Nick Shepard, an ailing investigator who's obsessed with finding a serial killer who prowls the region where Marian spends her days. Marian comes to suspect that someone close to her is the killer, and the intricately woven, atmospheric story will keep readers wondering until the end. The frozen landscape is prominent here, providing somber framing for Marian's emotionally driven work with tracking dogs and her experience adoring a man who can never love her enough. This melancholy but engaging tale is a great winter recommendation; try it with fans of other landscape-driven works, such as William Shaw's The Birdwatcher. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
