The first book in a thrilling series featuring a wildlife biologist who courts trouble as she saves endangered species . . . and a mysterious killer who buries his dead in the land she helps preserve-a fast-paced, action-driven tale of suspense with the atmosphere and propulsive tension of works by Jane Harper, C. J. Box, William Kent Krueger, and Nevada Barr. While studying wolverines on a wildlife sanctuary in Montana, biologist Alex Carter is run off the road and threatened by locals determined to force her off the land. Undeterred in her mission to help save this threatened species, Alex tracks wolverines on foot and by cameras positioned in remote regions of the preserve. But when she reviews the photos, she discovers disturbing images of an animal of a different kind: a severely injured man seemingly lost and wandering in the wilds. After searches for the unknown man come up empty, local law enforcement is strangely set on dismissing the case altogether, raising Alex's suspicions. Then another invasive predator trespasses onto the preserve. The hunter turns out to be another human-and the prey is the wildlife biologist herself. Alex realizes too late that she has seen too much-she's stumbled onto a far-reaching illegal operation and now has become the biggest threat. In this wild and dangerous landscape, Alex's life depends on staying one step ahead-using all she knows about the animal world and what it takes to win the brutal battle for survival.… (mer)

Solid story if a little over the top.

I was a big fan of the Nevada Barr national park series and I’m always on the lookout for similar things and this is the perfect book to scratch that itch.

Wilderness setting, mysterious behavior / crime / adventure, interesting cast of supporting characters, cliffhanger for the next book.

Is it great literature, probably not, but it’s fun to read and a nice change from my usual comfort read of romance (although there is potential for that too!)

"A Solitude of Wolverines" was an action-packed read and I enjoyed learning more about wolverines. Wildlife biologist, Alex Carter, was a worthy protagonist - determined, inventive, and passionate about animals. I was hooked from the first page and couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

This is the start of a series starring Alex and I am looking forward to the next novel. ( )

Really good, action-packed thriller. Plan to read this author's next in the Alex Carter series ( )

After reading a review I added this to my TBR list and was happy when it was chosen by my book club, however I found it a disappointment. Poor writing, not as much research/science info as I had hoped for, and a story that just didn't flow for me. On a positive note, my bookclub offered some links to informational videos and from them I did learn a lot about these interesting creatures. ( )

This has been on my TBR for a year or more. I was finally able to find a good time to read it. I heard several very favorable reviews for this mystery thriller. The set up is fairly simple: an environmental biologist who loves the wild outdoors is stationed at a lone site in Montana to document the wolverine population. The author uses vivid descriptions to set the scenes as the main character treks through the mountainous forest. The characters are interesting and definitely hold promise to be developed more as the series continues. However, I thought the thriller plotline was overly done and reads like a movie script. I was disappointed and not sure I’ll move on. The characters beckon me though, so we’ll see. ( )
