I haven't participated in Patti Abbott's outstanding blog creation Forgotten Book Friday in quite some time. I always mean to, but never seem to get an actual post up. Now it's even harder for me to do it since the forgotten books in my collection are now not only forgotten, but firewood as well.
Nevertheless I'm gonna do one by memory. (With a tad of cheating by looking it up on Amazon) I'm also cheating by posting mine about five hours early.
Back in the 1993 I was a college student. My major was wildlife biology and I was still trying to decide if I wanted to go the law enforcement route and become a game warden or go the science route. Funny, postal worker was no where in the equation.
Anyway, long about this time I picked up a paperback by author Ken Goddard titled, Prey.
The novel's protagonist was Henry Lightstone, a covert special agent of the Us Fish and Wildlife service. Of course he battled all kinds of bad guys, from crazy Cajun poachers, to corrupt CEOs of big businesses. The character appeared in future books and always the setting had to do with hunting, the outdoors and the environment. Needless to say I ate it up. There were several books in the series and I read them all, but Prey was the one that got me hooked. Check it out of you can find a copy. There area f ew lsited on Amazon.
Adding credibility to the stories was the fact that the author, Ken Goddard was the director of The National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory.
