Overview
A Wyoming fishing guide must return to his investigative roots to find his best friend's girlfriend in this "nonstop adventure and suspenseful page-turner that leaves the reader breathless" (Library Journal, starred review).

High season is coming to an end when Jake Trent, "a fishing guide with a shadowy past, is lured into an explosive situation" (Kirkus Reviews). As the ex-lawyer ponders rekindling his romance with park ranger Noelle Kimpton, a surprise call from a long-lost love throws his life into disarray. It's been years since Jake last saw Divya Navaysam at their law school graduation. Now a DC lobbyist, Divya wants Jake to come to Washington for a consulting job. He books a ticket, wondering what she is keeping from him.

Meanwhile, back in Jackson, Jake's best friend and occasional employee, J.P., is nursing his own romantic wounds. J.P. has fallen head over heels for Esma, but after a perfect summer together, she has returned to her native Mexico--and before long she drops off the grid completely. Has something terrible happened to her? When local police offer little help, a distraught J.P. turns to Jake. Jake must find Esma and manage a heated relationship with his ex-flame in order to solve the crisis.

David Riley Bertch's second installment in the Jake Trent series is a rollicking thriller--with a twisting plotline involving immigration, overpopulation, dirty politicians, and international intrigue. This wide-ranging novel is a "vivid...breezy read" (Associated Press) with "a cast of characters to rival any political crime drama on television today" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

Bertsch rewards his readers’ patience in his second thriller featuring former prosecutor Jake Trent (after 2013’s Death Canyon). Trent has found a new, quieter, life as a fishing guide in Wyoming, but his life becomes much less sedate after an old flame, Divya Navaysam, asks him to meet her in Washington, D.C. Divya wants Trent to help her with a group opposed to a plan by an ambitious senator who advocates funding to develop technology that could track illegal immigrants. Divya’s allies fear that the creation of SafeTrak will start the country down a slippery slope toward Orwellian surveillance of the entire population. Meanwhile, Jackson, Wyo., police chief Roger Terrell and his wife travel to China to represent their community on an odd tour that lands them in a bizarre village made up to look just like their hometown. The unrelated plot lines end up fitting together logically and smoothly, and Trent is convincing both as a man of action and as one of thought. Agent: Margaret Riley, William Morris Endeavor. (Jan.)
