With in just the first few pages I was already getting an eerie feeling in my stomach! This story is based in Kansas, in a town that’s literally less than an hour away from where I live! I even have a friend who lives in the TOWN in this story, talk about goosebumps.
The Saint of Wolves and Butchers is a story about Travis Roan and his dog bear who travel all around the world ‘hunting’ evildoers, bringing them to justice. Travis and Bear have been called to a town in Kansas, following the trail of a man called Rudolph Bormann, a Nazi doctor and concentration camp administration who is secretly living in the US under the name of Rudy Goodman in the 1950’s. One day in a cafe, a woman recognizes him, which is where Travis’s story starts.
Although once in Kansas, Travis learns that Rudy has friends in high places that will go to any length to protect him. He also discovers that Rudy is still continuing his diabolical work at a church where the followers believe he has God-like powers. Caught between these two is Kansas State Trooper Skottie Foster, she plans to do whatever it takes to help Travis, even if it means losing her job, putting her and her family in a danger she never could of imagined.
This is an interesting story placed in an unlikely town in Kansas, where a secret has been hidden for years that is now being uncovered. It’s pretty fast paced to where you won’t want to put the book down, there really never was any down time in the story! I’m really going to have to check out more books from this author, he seems pretty keened into making readers want to jump out of their skin! Alex Grecian weaves together a strong tale of past and present to bring historical fiction into a modern mystery!
