Review: The Hour of the Predators by Lane Stark

The Hour of Predators

Two gruesome murders have shocked and divided the community of Bella Coola, a small, isolated village in a remote river valley on the coast of British Columbia. The evidence points to a teenaged Nuxalk boy, and the simmering tension between whites and tribe members heats up. RCMP Inspector Marcus Chao must sort through misleading clues, cultural conflicts, tangled relationships, sexual scandals, and even rumors of sorcery to find the truth.

Marcus is a man whose life has skidded into remorse and misery. His own infidelity has ended his marriage to the woman he still loves, and now he finds himself with only two things to keep his sinking spirits afloat: the need to serve justice and his eternal fascination with solving the puzzle of the crime. This latest puzzle, however, is proving to be a maze of intrigue, and his mettle as well as his principles will be tested.


A murder mystery that keeps you engaged and turning pages.  The Hour of the Predators is more of an intellectual read rather than a cozy type mystery.  There is enough actions and a well defined story and cast of characters to pull you in.  If you are a mystery lover this will not disappoint.  I enjoyed this book and rate it 3.5 stars.
