Review by Booklist Review
In this strong series debut, U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter and his team, experts in tracking down fugitives, face a stern test: a young Tlingit woman has been murdered in a remote part of Alaska, and several crew members of a TV reality show filming in the area have disappeared. Are the murders and disappearances random events or the work of a deranged maniac? Or is there more to the carnage? Cameron effectively combines investigation and straight-ahead action, and he has fashioned a compelling, never-give-an-inch hero who will appeal to Jack Reacher fans. Jump in now for what looks to be a series that thriller fans will follow closely.--Jeff Ayers Copyright 2019 Booklist

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review
This terrific series launch from bestseller Cameron (the Jericho Quinn thrillers) introduces Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter, a skilled tracker. Now a part of the Fugitive Task Force, Cutter is assigned to Alaska, where one of his first assignments takes him and his partner, Deputy Lola Fontaine, to the town of Craig on Prince of Wales Island to bring in Hayden Starne on sexual assault and kidnapping charges. When teenager Millie Burkett goes missing, the search for Starne gains added urgency. Meanwhile, Craig is turned upside down by a crew filming FISHWIVES!, a reality show about local fishermen. The stakes rise when a sadistic Mexican cartel boss kidnaps the show's producer and her cameraman boyfriend. Cutter and Fontaine are soon awash in possible perpetrators and dead bodies. Cameron, who has nearly three decades in law enforcement and a stint as a U.S. marshal, keeps all these plot points delicately balanced and at the same time creates sympathetic heroes, depraved villains, and nail-biting action. Readers will eagerly await his next. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
