Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace

Imagine that the January sixth incident was run by a former Army General with a force of thousands using a military command structure. Would the U.S. government have fallen? That is essentially the plot of Leave No Trace.

Someone is targeting national parks. Michael, who has a prosthetic foot from a previous incident, is a member of the National Parks Service’s Investigative Services Branch. He is placed in charge of the aftermath of a terrorist bombing at the Statue of Liberty. He is soon overridden by FBI agent Gina who is placed in charge of a special joint terrorism task force. But the carnage doesn’t stop there. The two jet across the country trying to stop a gaggle of incidents at various national parks and landmarks.

As the spouse of someone with a prosthetic lower leg, Michael’s struggles with his prosthetic are accurate although there is currently no such thing as a prosthetic foot. They amputate foot injuries about four inches below the knee. Also, suction is used to keep shorter prosthetics on—not straps.

Each chapter begins with a fact about the national park where the chapter takes place. I found these small tidbits to be a welcome palate cleanser between the characters’ adventures. The plot moves along rapidly and there are some twists too. Overall, Leave No Trace is an enjoyable, adrenaline-fueled ride that I really enjoyed. 5 stars!

Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
