This was a fantastic, well-written mystery. The plot wasn't too complicated, but kept me guessing. The story really follows Claire and Daniel, the Nuxalk teenagers, but Marcus Chao is called in to this small, isolated town to solve the murders. Marcus is an interesting character and the author is working on a second Marcus Chao mystery, which I am excited about. If you don't mind dark, gritty, and gruesome, this is an excellent read.

All I can say is, "WOW!" I could not put down The Hour of Predators by Lane Stark. It is well-written, engaging and nail-biting. Grab your copy now!
The Hour of Predators is a fascinating murder mystery that takes place in a tiny, isolated Canadian community with some Native American residents and some "white" ones. There is constant conflict between the two races. Things really get stirred up when gruesomely murdered men are discovered. Even creepier, the causes of death are not what they appear and circumstances scream of Native American sorcery.
The only family practicing sorcery, the townspeople and Natives say, are the Lesters. Ancient, house-bound Mary Grace Lester is the only one who knows about the death rituals performed on each victim. Her breathtakingly beautiful granddaughter, Claire, is the one tie that connects the three men and the teen accused. Or is she?
A delightful blend of mysticism, old-fashioned detective work, love and mayhem wend their way through this exciting story. Lane Stark has created a world both intriguing and repulsive. A great read!
