Summary, etc.:
Alex Carter heads to northeastern Washington State to investigate a possible sighting of a mountain caribou--an animal that became extinct in the contiguous U.S. years ago--and becomes embroiled in a clash between loggers and activists and the murder of a local forest ranger.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2022 November #2
    In the third Alex Carter novel (following A Blizzard of Polar Bears, 2021), the wildlife biologist's search to prove the existence of a rare mountain caribou in Washington State leads her into a life-and-death situation. A forest ranger in a small town has been murdered and before long Alex realizes that she, too, could be in jeopardy. But why? Could one of the residents of the town be a killer? Readers who enjoy a well-paced, suspenseful thriller will give this book a thumbs up, but A Ghost of Caribou is more than that. Like C. J. Box's Joe Pickett novels and Paul Doiron's Mike Bowditch thrillers, the Alex Carter novels tackle real issues of environmentalism and wildlife conservation. The theme isn't just window dressing but rather is fundamental to the story. As much as we care about Alex's fate at the hands of a killer, we also care about the animal that brought her to the mountains in the first place. There's real passion here, and that gives the novel added substance. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
