Trail of the Jaguar

Biologist and wildlife photographer Clayton Porter witnesses what appears to be a routine drug-smuggling flight across the Arizona-Mexico border. Instead, he uncovers a sophisticated operation involving a secret lodge high in the Sierra Madre, canned hunts for endangered jaguars, a ring of opioid-dealing doctors in the U.S., and a string of cartel victims partially consumed by a large predator. After he unwittingly throws a wrench into the works, Porter becomes a target of revenge, and resorts to skills from his military service to save himself and those close to him.

My Review –

While I am such a home body, I love reading about the outdoors and the author really does a great job of painting the outdoors.  The wild and plant life, in addition to the history of the Southwest are painted in vivid detail that it feels like you are there.  While there is an action adventure thriller story in the book, I think this is what stands out to me, not that the rest isn’t good too.

Clayton Porter, specializing in anti poaching, discovers endangered jaguars being used to execute by the drug cartel.  He is the ultra man understanding the land, weapons and how to hunt justice.

The story is engaging and a heck of an adventure.  It moves along at a brisk pace and is sure to keep your attention.  I recommend this to any action adventure lovers who would like a chance to learn a little more about the US Southwest.
