9781451698015: Death Canyon: A Jake Trent Novel (Jake Trent Novels)

The debut novel—“a true thrill ride” ( Suspense magazine)—in the series featuring prosecutor-turned-Wyoming-fishing-guide Jake Trent: “a twisting, turning, murderous tale that thriller readers will love” ( New York Times bestselling author Michael McGarrity).

It’s early summer in Jackson, Wyoming, where former prosecutor Jake Trent has left the law behind to pursue his dream: becoming a fishing guide and opening a small bed-and-breakfast in the West. Now three seemingly unrelated deaths have occurred in one day—unheard of in the scenic valley of Jackson Hole—disrupting Jake’s idyllic new life.

A skier perishes in a freak late-season avalanche. A French couple is discovered mutilated on a remote trail—presumably by a bear. And on the Snake River, Jake stumbles across the body of an expensively attired fisherman. Meanwhile, a series of small earthquakes—not to mention a bitter dispute between land developers and environmentalists—has left the townspeople uneasy.

Before long, the plausible explanations for each death dissolve. Could there be a sinister connection among them? When fresh evidence points to Jake as a suspect, he goes on the defensive. Is someone out to frame him? Jake teams up with beautiful park ranger Noelle Klimpton to get to the bottom of this series of disturbing events. The trail leads right to the region’s crown-jewel attraction: Yellowstone. With “all the elements of a successful thriller” ( Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), Death Canyon features “evocative Rocky Mountain themes, a spot-on sense of place, brilliant fly-fishing scenes and characters you just want to root for” ( New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box).

Product Description:

[Read by Peter Berkrot]

In this first book in a debut thriller series, attorney-turned-fishing-guide Jake Trent's idyllic life is upended when he finds himself at the center of a series of grisly killings set around picturesque Jackson Hole.

It's early summer in Jackson, Wyoming. Former East Coast prosecutor Jake Trent, now a local fishing guide, is wading through a swift current of local politics, introspection, and tragedy. Three seemingly unrelated deaths have occurred in one day -- unheard of in the scenic valley. A skier perishes in a freak late-season avalanche. A French couple is discovered mutilated on a remote trail in Grand Teton National Park -- presumably by a bear. On the Snake River, Jake himself finds the body of an expensively attired tourist fisherman. Meanwhile, a series of small earthquakes -- not to mention a bitter dispute between land developers and a cult-like group of environmentalists -- has left the townspeople uneasy.

Before long, the plausible explanations for each death dissolve. Could there be a sinister connection between them? When fresh evidence points to him as a suspect, Jake is put on the defensive. Is someone out to frame him? Can he keep his past demons at bay while he tries to discover the truth behind the mysterious deaths?

Defying the police, Jake teams up with park ranger Noelle Klimpton, a loner beauty, to get to the bottom of this series of disturbing events. The trail leads right to the region's crown-jewel attraction: Yellowstone. What they discover will put all their lives at risk . . .
