Blog Tour: Review: In Velvet by Burt Weissbourd

The northwest corner of Yellowstone Park is closed for bear management, and Rachel, a bear biologist, is discovering some very startling animal behavior—grizzlies denning in June, swans at their wintering grounds in summer, what appear to be Irish Elk, an extinct species, with huge palmated antlers. There are also horrific mutations in the young—elk calves with no front legs, earless bear cubs, and eaglets without wings. What has gone wrong? Why is this area closed? Who’s covering up these animal abnormalities in the Park?

A non-stop thriller set in some of North America’s wildest country, In Velvet takes you deep into the hearts of a hard case local detective and a Chicago cop as they take on a corrupt sheriff, a pathalogical poacher, and a lethal black ops manager to solve this ghastly mystery and restore the natural order in Yellowstone National Park.,%201


This was a thrilling suspense, mystery read set against the stunning back drop of Yellowstone Park. With a cast of complex and well defined characters and a solid plot, it wasn't difficult getting sucked into this fascinating story.

I was riveted, wanting to find out even more about the strange mutations that Rachel found. I knew there had to be a tie in with the experiments taking place.  Add to that the many of twists and turns; the corruption and lies, there was just no end to the many layers to this story. It was an intricately woven web, intelligently written, and flawless.
