I did wind up enjoying the book. There were some typos (that seems to be an increasingly more common problem in ebooks . . . for whatever reason(s)) but, the plot was good and the characters were - mostly - reasonably well developed. Some certainly more than others in this regard.
I did like the book enough to buy the next in the Zoo Crew Series - 'Dead Peasants'. That one is starting off better than this one.
This one starts with the murder of a woman in Missoula, Montana. The man doing the killing is there to teach a lesson to the rest of the women who are present. His name is Notch and he really, really enjoys his work.
Drake Bell is twenty four years old. He's 6'2" with blond hair and blue eyes. He's a third year law student and he's just returned from Nashville, TN. Nashville is his hometown and the reason he has a very southern accent. An accent that sure stands out in Missoula.
Drake has just spent three months in the heat and humidity of Tennessee in the Summer to complete some of the training a law student needs to get a law degree. Drake is glad to be back in Montana. He's also beginning to have second thoughts about being a lawyer.
Drake was a star player for his college football team in Missoula. Drakes considered hometown hero though he isn't from Missoula or Montana.
Ajax is Drakes roommate and a good friend. They met in the roommate lottery when college started and the two of them were paired as roommates.
Ajax is from Boston and is a trust fund baby. He and his family are far, far from close. In fact Ajax would just as soon never see any of them at all. Ajax is the only African American in all of Missoula and his trust fund insures that he will never have to work. He has never touched one cent of the trust fund. He is a designer of video games and his games are so good he's making loads of money.
Kade and Sage Keuhl are brother and sister. Half Native American and half German. Kade is a smokejumper. He fights fires all over the country. He's very much a ladies man and he knows how to hoist a few at the local bars. Kade is also a hometown hero as he played football with Drake in college.
Sage is an RN and she works the night shift so she's available for when she, Kade, Ajax and Drake get
together which is a couple of times a week. They raft, swim, fish, ski and hike all over the mountains of Montana. They call themselves the Zoo Crew.
So begins one pretty damned fine read.
This one has Drake, Ajax, Kade, Sage, a girl named Ava, a girl named Ella, an old school friend of Drakes named Beth, a very pregnant Beth who has a real problem, the Mayor of Missoula, her sister, the Sheriff, a local doctor, a woman from social services, a scheme that's been making money for all of them for the last two years, a sociopath named Notch, another group of pregnant women, a Drake who gets involved because Beth is a woman who helped him out while he was in high school, Kade, Ajax and Sage who are also there to assist, a woman named Ava who's also a law student, an Ava who is kidnaped, a man called Rink, and Drake Bell and the Zoo crew doing what it takes to protect the ladies, take down a killer and stay alive.
Would make a good b movie. To much nasty torture. And the medical parts at the end. I read in lots of books that a cast is put on a broken bone as soon a person gets to hospital. Wrong. Dr. Will just wrap it and wait to make sure there is no swelling before putting cast on. There usually is. If cast is already on will have to take of, let swelling go down then put another on. Both the broken leg, with surgery, and broken hand would have had soon swelling. I have read other books by this author that were better.
The story is enticing and compelling! Who wouldn't want to get involved when it comes to mothers and their unborn babies! This is a very well written tale, with characters who would be called, "characters", by anyone around them! Their friendship and devotion to each other comes across very well without sounding, umm, schmaltzy is a good word, LOL! Add the compelling, fast paced story, and it all adds up to a terrific book! A highly recommended book by this reader!
