Dave P. Fisherabout this book: "Mark of the Killer" joins the previous Outdoor Fiction novels, "Cold Blows the Tundra Wind" and "Code of the Bush" by Dave P. Fisher and Double Diamond Books of Washington. These are the first in a series of outdoor novels under the "Northwest Suspense" heading. All novels in this series will be suspense plotted and each set in a Northwest state.
Healing and redemption, the goals of two young men from opposing families.
Ty Kavanagh from the greatly respected pioneer Kavanagh family seeks to find a way to heal his mind and soul over an accidental death he had no control over, yet blames himself for.
Jep Shuler, last descendent of the reprobate Shuler clan seeks respectability and to rise above the mold his family name has cast him in. As long settled as the Kavanaghs animosity has reigned between the two families for a hundred years.
Surrounding them is the close knit mountain community of Cougar Bend on Idaho's Clearwater River. A community made up of loggers, hunting outfitters, and small business owners. A community that respects the Kavanaghs and despises the Shulers.
Then, like a pestilent thread that weaves a strand through all of their lives, is Le Tueur – The Killer. The huge, old Tom cougar infamous for his wanton killing of big game animals and horses has turned man killer. All efforts to run The Killer to ground have failed for a decade. Le Tueur kills the dogs set on him, backtracks the hunters, and slips ghostlike through the rugged mountains leaving his mark of death wherever he prowls.
The old Nez Perce hunter, Ross Dubois, who named the cat from his French language, believes Le Tueur is possessed of an evil spirit that only a hunter possessing a good spirit can kill. Until that person comes forward The Killer will continue leaving his mark on the mountain country.
Escalating events pull all involved into a tighter circle where old hatreds are looked in the eye and the good spirit Ross has been waiting for emerges.
