A to Z Challenge 2016: A


My choice for my first review of the A to Z Challenge is Antler Dust:


Antler Dust begins with a bang. Two bangs. 

On the opening day of the hunting season in the Colorado Flat Tops wilderness, two men go missing. 

The first is a hunting guide. 
The second is an animal rights protester who believes his creative suicide will galvanize the animal rights movement. 
Hunting guide Allison Coil hears a distant rifle shot and sees just enough through the swirling snow to believe somebody knows something-and isn't coming forward. 

But what exactly did she see? 

Outfitter George Grumley fends off the formal investigation and works to discourage the informal and persistent inquiries by Coil. Grumley knows no limits in the effort to protect his guide service, which caters to fat-cat clients. 
Who needs hunting regulations when technology can produce the quickest and most thrilling hunt that money can buy? 

Okay, Antler Dust is probably not something I would pick up in the bookstore and take home to read but it was on my Kindle and started with an A so I read it and I must say I really enjoyed it.

A great mystery I really thought that I knew what was going on, till all of the sudden I didn't and I was thrust into the same what the fuck that the main character started the book in.  I loved it!

Allison Coil is an excellent heroine, she's got a brain on her shoulders and doesn't get discouraged by people trying to get her down, an excellent female role model.

  15. I chuckled when I read the way you cast around to pick a read to fit a post - I've been doing that with mine and still have to read one or two in order to write my final posts!
