This post was supposed to go live yesterday. My apologies to Rachel’s Random Resources and the Author. My health issues have gotten the better of me recently, but I’m trying to catch up.
Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Trail of the Jaguar by Jonathan Hanson. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review.
Biologist and wildlife photographer Clayton Porter witnesses what appears to be a routine drug-smuggling flight across the Arizona-Mexico border. Instead, he uncovers a sophisticated operation involving a secret lodge high in the Sierra Madre, canned hunts for endangered jaguars, a ring of opioid-dealing doctors in the U.S., and a string of cartel victims partially consumed by a large predator. After he unwittingly throws a wrench into the works, Porter becomes a target of revenge, and resorts to skills from his military service to save himself and those close to him.
Wow! Just wow! Trail of the Jaguar by Jonathan Hanson was absolutely entertaining. This book is full of humor, action, adventure, and a little romance to top it off. I was up late trying to finish this book, because I couldn’t put it down.
This book is very well written researched, written, and promises to be a great series. Jonathan Hanson‘s knowledge really comes into play here, creating a realistic novel, full of thrills.
I could keep going, or you could grab your copy and start reading. If you enjoy this genre, you’ll love this book. This is an author I will be reading again. Highly recommended.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Jonathan Hanson grew up northeast of Tucson, Arizona, with Sabino and Bear Canyons as his backyard, providing him with years of desert expeditions, hunting like the Apaches and building wickiups (which failed spectacularly).
He has since written for a score of outdoor and adventure magazines including Outside, National Geographic Adventure, Nature Conservancy, and Global Adventure, and has authored a dozen books on subjects including natural history, sea kayaking, wildlife tracking, and expedition travel.
Jonathan’s exploration experience encompasses land- and sea-scapes on six continents, from the Atacama Desert to the Beaufort Sea, from the Rift Valley to the Australian Outback, and modes of transportation from sea kayaks to sailboats to bicycles to Land Cruisers.
He has traveled among and worked with cultures as diverse as the Seri Indians and the Himba, the Inuit and the Maasai. Jonathan has taught tracking, natural history writing, four-wheel-driving techniques, and other subjects for many conservation and government organizations.
He is an elected fellow of the Explorers Club and the Royal Geographical Society, and a charter member of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, and lives in Southern Arizona with his wife of 37 years, Roseann Beggy Hanson.
