Descrizione prodotto


When an eccentric woman suddenly vanishes from a remote mountain cabin in Montana where she lives with her reclusive husband and a dozen captive wolves, area ranchers become convinced that she has been murdered. Others conclude the woman may have been attacked and killed by her semi-wild wolves. A middle-aged male deputy sheriff assigned to the case and a young woman journalist in her 20s, who has just arrived in the area to heal from a near-death experience, bring their own skewed perspectives and psychological baggage in an attempt to investigate and solve what appears to be a vicious crime. What the characters learn from one another, despite vastly varied backgrounds, and what they witness from watching the wolves themselves, may leave the reader with new or renewed respect for both wild and domesticated animals. The reader also may witness the healing power of nature as the characters attempt to escape the psychological demons of their pasts.


Writing and teaching writing classes have been Julie Davey's life's work. She writes for magazines, newspapers and her work appears on several online sites. As a college writing professor, she has always advised her students to "write about what you know". She practices what she preaches. In Cry Wolf, Julie's love of nature and her affection for animals combine in the compelling story of four individuals from extremely varied backgrounds who choose to leave mainstream life and settle in the remote mountains of Montana, hoping to erase deep psychological scars from traumatic life experiences. The healing power of nature plays a significant role as do animals, both wild and domesticated ones. Cry Wolf, her fourth book, also contains autobiographical overtones. A former journalist for a Texas newspapers, like Laura the reporter in Cry Wolf, Julie often ignored physical perils when investigating possible criminal behavior in the sparsely inhabited mountains of Northern Mexico. She has also probed into spine-chilling crimes alongside police officers like Cry Wolf's deputy sheriff Duane. Ironically, some of the most implausible events in Cry Wolf, ones that some readers might dismiss out of hand as fiction, were actually witnessed by Julie when she and her parents befriended an eccentric couple living with a dozen wolves inside a remote mountain cabin. Characters in this psychological mystery struggle to find answers to complex questions: Can some individuals unexpectely connect on an undefined emotional level with one another and with animals? Can well-meaning people who live with wild animals ever completely trust or tame them? Does great personal tragedy permanently eliminate one's objectivity? As a two-time cancer survivor whose mother, father and brother all died from the disease, Julie has had to face her own tragic events and either deal with them or be psychologically immobilized. She chose to teach others how to write about their experiences, and her second published book "Writing for Wellness: A Prescription for Healing" came as a result of 10 years of teaching writing to cancer patients and their family members.

HASH(0x961848d0) su 5 stelle Exciting Mystery 11 maggio 2012
Di Beverly Simone - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Based on actual events, "Cry Wolf: A psychological thriller" is an exciting mystery that has the reader on the edge of her/his seat. With rich character development, one is struck by how psychologically damaged the individuals in the story are, as they struggle to recover a sense of self. One is able to easily sympathize with and relate to the characters on a very personal level.

There is much symbolism in this book, with the wolves, themselves, providing an eerie yet beautiful backdrop.

Ms. Davey's narrative is filled with wonderfully descriptive scenes of the environment, to such a degree that the reader feels transported into the story and experiences the wonders of wild nature. The rain, dead leaves, the eyes of the wolves, all serve to enhance the mood and tone of the book.

"Cry Wolf" captures the reader's imagination and interest with the initial paragraph and quickly becomes one of those "I couldn't put it down" novels.

HASH(0x965ac0fc) su 5 stelle Cry Wolf: a lesson here 3 maggio 2012
Di Claudia Heller - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A very different book with a multi-faceted plot which will keep you reading to the end! Learn some lessons here about how the mind forms opinions, about how people escape society only to find that primitive living has horrors of its own, and how adults can find new direction by moving on in life. There is mystery, love, sadness and happiness, intrigue, and more than a few insights into the way wolves interact with humans. I liked the book because it was different and enticing.

HASH(0x96578330) su 5 stelle Fascinating Insight into Wolves and the People Who Love Them 29 ottobre 2013
Di Michelle Nicolson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Fascinating story based on an unusual couple and their love for wolves. I like a good thriller, and this one delivered along with some great insight into the world of wolves and the people who care about them. I'll never look at these majestic creatures in quite the same way again.

I enjoyed the characters, particularly the main heroine. It was nice to read about a woman standing up for what she thinks is right. She's also very inspiration for her efforts to rise above a tragic past. Great read!

I found this to be a fascinating read -- from the information about wolves, the author's excellent character depictions, the setting, not to mention the backstory of the heroine and other characters and how it impacted their interpretation of events. I definitely recommend it!

Hoffentlich enttäusche ich Frau Davey nicht, weil ich ihren Psychothriller um häusliche Gewalt, ein Rudel Problem-Wölfe und die Bergwelt Montanas nicht besonders spannend fand. Ihre Verknüpfung der drei Motive hat mich trotzdem gefesselt. Als Schauplatz dient in der Landschaft der Rocky Mountains nahe Bozemann eine Urlauber-Ranch, die Nebenrolle spielen ein hinreißender Hund und ein routiniertes Pferd, als Hauptfigur tritt eine junge Journalistin auf. Laura ist noch immer traumatisiert, seit sie in letzer Minute aus der Werkzeugkiste gerettet wurde, in der ihr gewalttätiger Mann sie lebendig begraben hatte. In den Bergen Montanas soll die traumatisierte Frau nach Abschluss ihrer Psychotherapie allmählich wieder im Leben Fuß fassen. Ihr Therapeut hatte sie abschließend noch vor dem Cry-Wolf-Syndrom gewarnt. Er befürchtet, dass Gewaltopfer gefährliche Situationen aufgrund ihres Traumas falsch einschätzen. Mit dieser Information fürchtet man als Leser sogleich, dass Laura auf ihren einsamen Ausritten nahe der Vegetationsgrenze in der Wildnis in Gefahr geraten könnte. In unmittelbarer Nähe der Urlauber-Ranch, auf der Laura sich ein Pferd leiht, verschwindet eine Frau. Sie und ihr Mann lebten abgeschieden zusammen mit einem Rudel Alaska-Wolf-Mischlinge. Ob die Tiere nun Wölfe, Huskies oder keins von beidem sind, hält hier niemanden davon ab, sich vor dem sonderbaren Paar und seinen riesigen Haustieren zu fürchten. Duane, der Sheriff, und Laura ergreifen in dem Vermisstenfall sofort Partei. Laura ist überzeugt, der gewalttätige Gregg hätte seine Frau ermordet. Duane geht ebenso entschieden davon aus, Evie hätte sich gemeinsam mit einem Ex-Lover abgesetzt. Kompliziert wird die Angelegenheit, als in der Umgebung der Touristen-Ranch zunehmend Haus- und Nutztiere gerissen werden. Ob von Kojoten, von Wölfen aus dem Yellowstone-Park, die angeblich alle brav mit Funkhalsbändern versehen sind, oder von den Alaskawölfen, ist nun zu klären.

Die Autorin Julie Davey ist Journalistin und hat Journalisten unterrichtet. In ihrem Psycho-Thriller, der streckenweise wie ein Drehbuch wirkt, lässt sie Laura mit journalistischen Arbeitsmethoden ermitteln, die die Leser in manchen Szenen mit Informationen überschütten. Die Hälfte des Buches nimmt Lauras Vorgeschichte und ihre Erkundung der neuen Umgebung ein. In der zweiten Hälfte gelingt der Autorin noch sehr geschickt die schlüssige Verknüpfung aller Handlungsfäden, falschen Fährten und Indizien. Problemwölfe als Gefahr für den Tourismus sind uns auch in Deutschland vertraut; ihre Rolle macht für mich den Reiz des Buches aus.
