SEABOURN REC­OM­MENDS:

FOR YOUR DOWN TIME...

Seabourn Club Herald - - SEE HEAR DO -

The dde­but novel from writer-ad­ven­turer El­li­son Cooper Coop grew out of her pas­sions for three things: cultural cultu his­tory, neu­ro­bi­ol­ogy and dogs. One would ex­pect exp lit­tle else from an au­thor who’s been an an­thro­pol­ogy ant pro­fes­sor, a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tor and an a cer­ti­fied Wilder­ness K9 Search and Res­cue worker. w This might seem to be a broad scope, but b Cooper’s in­tri­cate plot drives on­ward with pre­ci­sion, p page by page, as we fol­low FBI neu­ro­sci­en­tist Sayer Al­tair on the trail of a killer who’s ab­duct­ing girls and rit­u­al­is­ti­cally starv­ing them to death. Along the way, we’re treated to per­spec­tives on an­cient religion, the modern mass me­dia and the in­ner­most truths of hu­man na­ture.
