The Wild Inside
The Wild Inside: A Novel of Suspense | Christine Carbo
12 posts | 7 read | 20 to read
A haunting crime novel set in Glacier National Park about a man who finds himself at odds with the dark heart of the wildand the even darker heart of human nature. It was a clear night in Glacier National Park. Fourteen-year-old Ted Systead and his father were camping beneath the rugged peaks and starlit skies when something unimaginable happened: a grizzly bear attacked Teds father and dragged him to his death. Now, twenty years later, as Special Agent for the Department of the Interior, Ted gets called back to investigate a crime that mirrors the horror of that night. Except this time, the victim was tied to a tree before the mauling. Ted teams up with one of the park officersa man named Monty, whose pleasant exterior masks an all-too-vivid knowledge of the hazardous terrain surrounding them. Residents of the area turn out to be suspicious of outsiders and less than forthcoming. Their intimate connection to the wild forces them to confront nature, and their fellow man, with equal measures of reverence and ruthlessness. As the case progresses with no clear answers, more than human life is at stakeincluding that of the majestic creature responsible for the attack. Teds search for the truth ends up leading him deeper into the wilderness than he ever imagined, on the trail of a killer, until he reaches a shocking and unexpected personal conclusion. As intriguing and alluring as bestselling crime novels by C.J. Box, Louise Penny, and William Kent Krueger, as atmospheric and evocative as the nature writing of John Krakauer and Cheryl Strayed, The Wild Inside is a gripping debut novel about the perilous, unforgiving intersection between man and nature.

I‘m starting the year off right. 2019 was full of four star books but not many fives. This is definitely a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️which makes me very happy for my first read of 2020. This was an OLD #LitsyRecommends I believe from @Jules7 that I saw and had to read. Not a lot of reviews on it but I loved it- the kind of slow moving mystery that‘s very atmospheric with clues being eked out a bit at a time. Didn‘t guess the ending, definitely recommend!

Bklover Also thanks to my daughter and son-in-law as this was part of my #ChristmasHaul. ❤️❤️❤️ (edited) 4w

Trying to finish the last few pages of this novel, and it‘s making me nuts that I can‘t figure out who did it!!

Eggs Oooo this sounds so good 🤗😳 2y
Jules7 @Eggs I bought all four of her books after reading the blurb for the latest release in the series (A Sharp Solitude). So good. Starting book two tonight....and my hunch was right on the whodunit in book one. 😉 2y

The imagery in this book was so beautiful. It was set in Glacier National Park in Montana (I really want to visit there after reading this!) and I really enjoyed the descriptions of the park, I felt like I could picture everything! The mystery was intriguing and the main character was a very interesting point of view to see the story from. Really recommend this book.
4.5 ⭐

#bookmail on this chilly rainy day!

KellyK All the Ugly and Wonderful Things... tough subject matter but I thought it was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read. 2y
CocoReads @KellyK yes, it was. I read it from the library earlier in the year and can‘t get it out of my head. I‘m thinking of picking it for my IRL bookgroup because I think it‘ll be very discussable 2y
eanderson All the Ugly and Wonderful Things... ❤️❤️❤️ I still think about that book a year later! 2y

I bailed on two books this week! 😭😭😭 This breaks my heart. I really wanted to love both of them. Wolves and bears and wild things are typically a big win for me. But alas. I guess some things just aren't meant to be. #itsnotyouitsme

Sace Aww. I'm sorry. I hope something catches your interest soon. 😔 3y
Cinfhen The Wild Side sounds so good, sorry it wasn't a win for you. Unfortunately I've seen a few bails for Wolves... 3y

No, not a real bear, but one I came across on yesterday's morning walk. We did see a REAL bear last week as we arrived in the mountains. We took a back road shortcut and a BIG black bear bounded across the road about 30 yards in front of us. No time to get a picture because that bear was moving fast! Glad I was in the car! Christine Carbo's debut mystery, The Wild Inside, has received award nominations and is on my list to read soon.

ScrappyMags My brother, a pro hiker, was charged by a 400lb black bear mamma with a cub! She charged him, and he just looked down and away and backed away slowly. She stopped about 10ft away and woofed and stomped at him and he calmly said "goooood bear. Gooooooood bear" and backed away. I would have crapped myself and prayed, personally. 3y
Jellybeanbon I want that bear! It's adorable. The fake one not the real one that charged @ScrappyMags brother. 3y
[DELETED] 2232195534 @ScrappyMags Wow, so scary!! Think I would have been paralyzed with fear!! @Jellybeanbon Cute bear, right? This area has lots of yard ornamentation - bears, elk, deer - as well as the real thing! 3y
BlogginBoutBooks I'll be interested to see what you think of the book. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did :( 3y
