This book took place in a desert park and followed the life of a blm ranger and what he does. I found it interesting in his adventure to find a illegal hunter and some crazy hoodlums out for revenge. The characters were very colorful and interesting. The descriptions in the book kept me reading. This has a mystery and some hunt them out chases.

it was a confusing book. I did like at the end how the mystery came together, buy I don't recommend this book to anybody because of the lack of explanation.
