From the Editor

This thriller laced with cutting-edge science sucked me in from page one, making my adrenaline surge in the same way the works of Michael Crichton and Dan Brown do. Theo Cray, a computational biologist and professor, is a brilliant yet flawed hero. Much more comfortable in his lab than with people, he is thrown into the role of amateur detective/forensic investigator when one of his former students is found dead—and he is the prime suspect.

Forced to step outside of his academic mind-set and deal with humans, Theo relies upon his scientific expertise and some genetic profiling to uncover the truth and preserve his own life. His ability to see unusual patterns where others see only random brutality is when Theo is at his most dazzling. Almost magical. This is not entirely surprising when you take into consideration author Andrew Mayne’s side job as a professional illusionist and magician.

As a nonscientist and magic enthusiast, I was spellbound by every page. And now I wait with bated breath for Theo Cray’s next adventure in Looking Glass, the second book of the series.

Editorial Reviews

Review

A Liz and Lisa Best Book of the Month

“[A] smoothly written suspense novel from Thriller Award finalist Mayne…The action builds to [an]…exciting confrontation between Cray and his foe, and scientific detail lends verisimilitude.” Publishers Weekly

“With a strong sense of place and palpable suspense that builds to a violent confrontation and resolution, Mayne’s (Angel Killer) series debut will satisfy devotees of outdoors mysteries and intriguing characters.” Library Journal

The Naturalist is a suspenseful, tense, and wholly entertaining story…Compliments to Andrew Mayne for the brilliant first entry in a fascinating new series.” —New York Journal of Books

“An engrossing mix of science, speculation, and suspense, The Naturalist will suck you in.” Omnivoracious

“A tour de force of a thriller.” —Gumshoe Review

“Mayne is a natural storyteller, and once you start this one, you may find yourself staying up late to finish it…It employs everything that makes good thrillers really good…The creep factor is high, and the killer, once revealed, will make your skin crawl.” —Criminal Element

“If you enjoy the TV channel Investigation Discovery or shows like Forensic Files, then Andrew Mayne’s The Naturalist is the perfect read for you!” The Suspense Is Thrilling Me
