Sinossi

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.

L'autore

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle A compelling read. 6 maggio 2017

"Several nights ago, I sat in rapt attention as a friend described spotting two 'coyotes' lurking out her kitchen window in this small, mountain village in the heart of Central Arizona. She soon discovered that these were no coyotes. "They were much larger and walked with a gliding grace. They were beautiful," she stated. Her outside guests were Mexican Gray Wolves.
It reminded me of a similar kitchen in Santa Barbara, California where I sat and marveled at the sight of a mother Timberwolf constantly moving, constantly teaching her pup as they weaved around our kitchen chairs. Such beauty, such grace and such caring as the highly intelligent parent taught her son to behave.
It also reminded me of a special book. Taking "Cry Wolf, a psychological thriller" down from our bookcase, I reread the story. It took me back to our not too distant past when these magnificent, social predators roamed the mountains and taught western ranchers that "the strength of the wolf is in the pack."
The author, Julie Davey, successfully weaves a compelling, romantic fiction into a story of the truth of man's relationship with the great pack hunters. Since the dawn of man, wolves have lived beside us in an uneasy coexistence. Julie portrays when the paths of man and beast intersect. While a story, it brings to life one of man's most important relationships in the animal kingdom.
The book is highly entertaining and a recommended good read."
5.0 su 5 stelle Artfully Written Good Read 17 agosto 2014

I can't recall reading, at least for some time, a better product of 'descriptive writing'. The author's skilled use of this writing style takes you right into the setting of the story: the "clear view of the lake-shore ringed in tall pine trees, interspersed with the light gray bark of leafless aspen trees reaching up toward them" takes you mentally right into that beautiful mountain scene. And when a local waitress, Crystal, is described as having "teased platinum hair that falls sporadically from a failed french twist, her black roots crying out for peroxide", you smile as you instantly recall all the 'Crystals' in your life. The writing style alone was enough to propel me from chapter to chapter but throw in a love angle, animals and a captivating mystery and this book is a definite 5-star recommendation. This was a wonderful read.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fascinating Insight into Wolves and the People Who Love Them 29 ottobre 2013

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!

This thriller kept me glued to each word. I hated for it to end...learned about wolves and more importantly about the spirit of the human being. Never give up on what you believe in...you can overcome being a victim.
