This is why I love fiction. Fiction has the power to look at all sides of the argument and get inside peoples--and animals--heads. I loved the concept of the book. The plight of animals whether in slaughterhouses or out in the wild needs to brought forth for the world and what better way to do this than through fiction? The book is well researched and it is horrifying and immensely saddening to experience what animals are going through at the hands of humans. Robin has done a great job about tha [...]
This second volume in the Kinship Series has our heroine, the estimable Jude Braddock and her trusty hound Finn, moving on from investigating malfeasance around a pig-slaughtering facility in Pennsylvania (Volume 1) to Idaho and malfeasance taking place in and around Wildlife Services. The plot moves along briskly and efficiently, and along the way we get a detailed and frankly horrifying description of the government's war on wolves, coyotes, foxes, and other animals on behalf of ranchers. If a [...]
Another great installment in this series. I was a little hesitant to read this since I have a particular dislike for hunting and trapping, and I thought my blood might start boiling at some of the scenes, causing me to want to thorw the book and smash something. Happily, Lamont knows just when enough is enough, and while there are some graphic depictions of shot and trapped animals, and the infuriating casualness with which hunters and trappers do these things, she pulls back into a different sc [...]
The second book in a promising series! The Trap, book two of The Kinship Series pulls the reader in and leaves her wanting more. In the first book, The Chain, Lamont introduces her detective protagonist Jude Brannock, an undercover investigator at a meat packing plant. The Trap explores the conflicts between hunters, trappers, and advocates for wolves. In this second book, Lamont hits her stride. Looking forward to Lamont's next book "The Experiment" and following the unfolding story of Jude Bra [...]
This book is a brave and important piece of work. Like her heroine, Robin Lamont has waded into the deep waters of public land and wildlife mismanagement and uncovers a host of ugly truths. In the West the government agencies that are charged with protecting the land and wildlife have been largely captured by the folks the land and wildlife needs protection from. The secretive US Government Wildlife Services is run by the USDA for ranchers in a way the public would never tolerate if they knew ab [...]
Wow. I read a lot of animal advocacy fiction (well, not a lot, as not much exists yet), and with some books, the author's heart is in the right place, but his/her writing skills are sub-par. That's not the case with Robin Lamont. Not only does she care about our fellow beings, but she is also an awesome writer to boot, crafting a top-notch mystery that will keep you guessing. When an infamous government trapper is found dead in his own wolf trap, the residents of a tiny Idaho town immediately su [...]
I only just started reading this book 2 days ago. It was so good I couldn't put it down! I HIGHLY recommend The Kinship Series and I already can't wait for the next installment!!
A thought-provoking, suspenseful take on what "animal protection" really means. Can't wait for the next book in The Kinship Series!
