Meet Grady Service: a former Marine, renowned tracker, Conservation Officer, and the last person any errant hunter wants to cross. In Ice Hunter, the first of a new series of mysteries set in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Service defends his turf with the tenacity of a bear and the wisdom of an ancient. He shuns all creature comforts and consumerism and is most at home stalking the Mosquito Tract, his self-designated wilderness and the land protected by his C.O. father before him. Times are not easy for Service. As this summer season opens, he gets news that his nemesis, the despicable leader of an incestuous clan of poachers, is about to be released from prison. But something even more sinister is afoot in the Mosquito Tract - something that inspires greed far beyond the hunter going over his limit, something that involves giants of industry and politics (including the governor of the State of Michigan) - something that too easily renders human life dispensable. Service must call upon his every reserve to track, stalk, and hunt the "ice" hunter. Full of grit and wilderness lore, Ice Hunter show off Heywood's extraordinary talents Like his four earlier novels, which have gained him cult status for his intricate plots and outrageously unforgettable characters, Ice Hunter delivers and entices with the promise of more novels in the series to come.
