I picked this book a while back on kindle unlimited mostly because it had an audio narration available free with it. When the audio option vanished a couple of weeks in, I delegated it to the end of the queue ( mentally that is). I finally got around to it last night and was pleasantly surprised.
The word pleasant ,however , cannot be attributed the details of the case.There is a suspected animal attack and it is just one of many though there is something off about the scenario. Theo Cray needs to satisfy his curiosity about the kinks in the situation, to his own , official and physical peril. We are introduced to Dr Theo Cray in a very unique fashion and the reason he is interrogated are kept out of the first few pages, till our interest is piqued. Theo is introduced to a scenario which did not need him to delve any deeper, but he does. This lands him in more than just simple trouble. One of the major reasons I enjoyed this book was the thought process of Theo that we are privy to. The thoughts border on naive and humourous. This adds a new flavour to the scene, while the case becomes increasingly twisted and things end in a more explosive fashion than I imagined likely.

I am looking forward to the next book due to be released next year!
P.S I am counting down the number of reviews I have completed since my last list and will probably be releasing another one soon.
