This compelling nonfiction work takes the reader into a convoluted eight month infiltration of a group of squalid criminals trafficking in wildlife by two undercover game wardens. Latham doesn’t hold back on the language in this book nor does he downplay the vile acts that occurred against both the human and wildlife victims in this twisted tale. If you think poachers are ...more

If you love wildlife then "Trafficking" will be an eye-opening read for you. It's a true story about a tough, and often ugly, job to protect the wildlife we cherish. We are so fortunate to have men, like Tony, and women who are willing to endure low pay, long hours and danger because they too love wildlife. You won't take the presence of wildlife for granted after reading this book.
I have never known a lot about the subject of wildlife (except for some fishing) so I found
this subject to be fascinating. There are not a lot of books out there addressing this so it was definitely an eye opener. It was well written and read like a fast paced thriller with interesting subjects. Highly recommend!

I am disappointed. Was looking forward to reading this book.

Tony Latham verbrachte 22 Jahre seines Lebens damit Wilddiebe zu verfolgen. Mal in und mal ohne Uniform. In "Trafficking" rekonstruiert er seinen wichtigsten Fall als Undercover Jagdaufseher.

Zugegeben, die Übersetzung "Jagdaufseher" für "Game Warden" klingt auf deutsch nicht gerade "sexy". Und hierzulande dürfte der Job auch nicht ganz so spannend sein.
Im Wilden Westen dagegen, fährt der Jagdaufseher mit Shotgun und Pickuptruck durch die dichte Wildnis, während sein Hund auf der Ladefläche die

I highly recommend this book! I had a hard time putting it down because it kept my interest from the first page through the last page. If you think all game wardens do is write citations, this book will really open your eyes. I came away from it with a new found appreciation of the dangerous work game wardens do while working undercover to protect our wildlife. Mr. Latham does an excellent job in describing the unsavory criminals and their operations and the great lengths to which he and his par ...more

This is a good story. If you are a wildlife lover, it is a little scary to realize just how much poaching goes on that is never prosecuted. It really takes guts for these officers to go undercover with some really bad people and to be able to play the role to completion. I would recommend (and have) this book to everyone with any interest in wildlife.
I won this book through a giveaway. Before reading this book I didn't know much about what a Game Wardens job involved besides making sure people had hunting/fishing licenses. I really enjoyed reading this and I have a whole new respect for what Game Wardens do. Great book, Tony Latham! Thank you!

Story flowed well, interesting to someone who didn't know much about the job of a game warden .And since he is local and tlaking aobut familiar places alwyas adds to the appeal of the book, but not necessary to enjoy it.Looking forward to a book group discussion on it that the author will attend.
