Publisher's Summary

As a Fish and Wildlife police officer, Luke McCain and his partner - a yellow Lab named Jack - spend their days patrolling the rivers, lakes, and forests of the wild and scenic Cascade Mountains in Eastern Washington. After hunters discover human remains inside a bear's stomach, McCain is thrust into the investigation. 

As more dead women are found in McCain's region, authorities suspect a serial killer is prowling the mountains he knows best. McCain will need his knowledge as an outdoorsman, and his instincts as an investigator, to track the psychopathic predator before he kills again.

This has overtones of Doiron and Mayne...

If you like Paul Doiron’s Mike Bowditch or the first book in The Naturalist Series by Andrew Mayne then you will surely enjoy this book as well. The protagonist is Luke McCain. He’s a Fish and Wildlife Game Warden in Washington state. At first the murder of young women looked like animal attacks. Our hero soon realizes the attacks are not being committed by any four legged animal but rather one that walks on two legs instead. .......,,,....., Lamont Mapp does a really good job narrating. ................. This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. .................. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. ................. Thank You.

Cliché

This book was suggested by an audible algorithm based on other books I’ve read. I’ve read so many other “wilderness-mysteries” that were so much more compelling. Nothing bugs me more than a narrator who mispronounces place names. I listened all the way through, but for me it was just “meh”. Regret the waste of a credit

Loved this book!

I stumbled across this book when I stopped by Inklings to sign copies of a book I had written. Several months later, I had more time and found it on Audible. Fun story that takes place near my home town! I already purchased the second one, and will continue to look for more work from this author!

Excellent Must Read Book!

I live in the area where this story takes place and the author nailed each and every detail and it was neat to follow along and know where each place was at in real life. I was glue to this book from the beginning and finished it in one day! Great job by the author and the narrator! I can’t wait for his next book!

great story mediocre reading.

Living in the SW Washington the story was very captivating and well written. The reader seemed un-invested in the story.

Pronouncing local towns

Great story. But when you turn a book into an audiobook, it would be helpful to get help from the author to pronounce towns, areas or names like the locals do.

Good Story

Enjoyable story. Being from Washington State I had to put up with the mispronounced place names and wish the narrator had done a little homework in this area. Being retired law enforcement I had to go with the flow on some of the procedural stuff as well. All in all it was still a good story and put together well by the author.

Enjoyable

An enjoyable story with a bit of suspense and laughable moments. I really liked the ending, which I didn’t see coming, we’ll done Mr. Phillips.

You'll be glad you did!

The Cascade Killer was an easy, but completely captivating read! The vivid descriptions in the book enable the reader to "see" the story while listening. I enjoyed the down-to-earth storytelling and real-life possibilities. In the end, the killer caught me by surprise, which was great! I highly recommend this book - especially to any outdoorsmen out there!
