Theo is a techo biologist who studies patterns in living things.
This unlikely hero is firstly a suspect in the murder of one of his students. Once his name is cleared he starts his own investigation where he finds dozens of bodies. All while the police and authorities are in denial. When mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop.
As more details, and bodies, come to light, the local cops determine that the killer is either a grizzly gone rogue…or Theo himself. Racing to stay one step ahead of the police, Theo must use his scientific acumen to uncover the killer. Will he be able to become as cunning as the predator he hunts—before he becomes its prey
Although an unlikely storyline, the writing is strong and Mayne has constructed a well written plot, and a believable character in Dr Theo.
