    The Wild Inside is an excellent debut novel with a unique and very sympathetic protagonist.As a fourteen year old boy in the Fall of 1987, Ted Systead went camping with his father in Glacier National Park in northwestern Montana While the two of them slept that night, a large grizzly bear attacked their tent, dragged Systead s father away and mauled him to death Fortunately, the bear did not return to attack Ted, but the boy, though physically safe, was very badly traumatized by the episode.Twen [...]

    I love the writing for this atmospheric mystery set in Glacier Natl Park The pace seems realistic in that things don t happen quickly and require painstaking detective work, false leads, interviewing and follow up So, it s not a thriller page turner, but I was lulled in by the characters,especially the introspective detective, and enchanted by the lonely,empty feel of the wilderness of Montana in the off season.

    Wow A brilliant debut novel I don t ordinarily use the description for a book in writing my reviews but this is such an original story line and setting that I can t describe it any better than the books given introduction So I ll start with that A haunting crime novel set in Glacier National Park about a man who finds himself at odds with the dark heart of the wild and the even darker heart of human nature.It was a clear night in Glacier National Park Fourteen year old Ted Systead and his father [...]

    This book seemed to check all the boxes for me nature, wildlife, national parks, and mysteries There aren t enough books in that genre for me.I ll let others summarize the plotline It held my interest because of its multi layered dynamics Everyone had a heavy backstory It makes one think of the immense weight we carry within from the impact of earlier life situations We never quite broker the opportunity to set it all down.Christine Carbo has really done her research from all aspects I did find [...]

    Is anyone else suspicious about the number of reviews that include the phrase debut novel in the first sentence I m very surprised by the high number of good reviews for this book It is not well written The dialogue and characters are incredibly cliche and for a book about murder and bear maulings, it really drags The book has a strong premise an investigator returns to the national park where his father was mauled and killed by a grizzly bear to solve a similar murder but it just completely fal [...]

    A special agent is sent to the area in Montana, where he grew up as a boy, to solve a murder mystery set in the woods of Glacier National Park The key players either don t remember him or are unaware of a tragedy he suffered there as a boy He must find a killer while trying to deal with his old demons, who are again rearing their ugly heads For me Christine Carbo s caliber of writing is somewhere below C J Box but way above Nevada Barr, parts of the story felt like fill Many suspects kept me gue [...]

    Nothing wrong with this book I m just not into detective type crime novels Too many books, too little time to read something that doesn t captivate you.If you like crime novels, check this one out though Complex male lead with a tragic history that is coming back to haunt him in his current case Kinda wish I liked this genre

    Regina
    This is a great debut novel I will be watching this author A fleshed out review closer to release date But if you enjoy thrillers in wild natural settings, then this book is for you.

    Randi
    I enjoyed this book for the dark chilling atmosphere, rich inner dialogue, and beautiful natural setting of Glacier National Park It still took me longer to finish than I d have liked, which now occurs to me as a funny similarity to the detective s slow pace in actually solving the case which was not just due to my sluggish reading of it since his slow solving pace was also observed by others in the book The only thing that could have made this book awesome was if the leading character was a wom [...]

    Debbie
    This was definitely a great debut novel I really couldn t believe that it was a debut The main character talked about cases in the past that he had handled and I seriously thought it was a sequel to a series The writing is awesome with a lot of emotion from Ted coming to light Especially as he was a forest ranger working in forests where there are Grizzlies This is certainly true dependent on the fact his father was killed by one I thought the story was pretty good for the most part but there we [...]

    I liked this book It is the debut novel of this author That was impressive because she didn t pull at any of my pet peeves This was an evenly paced story that moved along The MC was very personable and had a great back story He was creatively thought out The ending was tied up neatly, if that is a must for you So overall, 3 stars I will keep a look out for this author in the future.

    Please don t waste your precious time on this book I m honestly not sure how it has received so many good reviews I thought it poorly written and there were several spelling and grammar errors The characters were not well developed and everything about them was clich The author used way too many adjectives to describe every single thing, including the mundane Around chapter 8 I couldn t stand it any so I skipped several chapters ahead to find out the ending Surprisingly, I found that I hadn t mi [...]

    Moving this to DNF 8chapters in and the story is just to slow to progress What could be an exciting plot is turning out to be boring no stars assigned

    Annet
    This is just the book for me, I love Glacier, have camped there several timesd met with grizzly bears during hikes scary.But Glacier is just a beautiful, wild park.

    Sarah
    Yeah, not bad Not as suspenseful as it purports to be, but a fairly chewy story of a guy who as a teenager had his father eaten by a grizzly right beside him, and now investigates a curious instance of murder by bear mauling while also trying to come to terms with his issues.It s not very polished and there are some issues with characterisation stock melodrama villain who almost twirls his mustache, all the guys doing some macho thing vying for position beginning with literally sizing each other [...]

    The picture of the bear on the cover sold me on this book I know, Don t judge a book by its cover But the bear looks so ominous, the way he stares right at you, maybe a little off to the side He could kill you if he wanted to exert the effort, but he looks content to find fish in the river The book didn t live up to the picture but it was pretty good Our protagonist is set to solve the murder of someone that was tied up and left in the woods only to be eaten alive by a wild grizzly bear It so ha [...]

    This is big book in every way the characters, including the imperfect main character with his childhood trauma the place the plot It is of a psychological thriller, as opposed to a murder mystery, pushing the envelope of the genre quite a bit.At the center of this novel is a nonverbal being, a bear who never does anything that the reader sees directly, yet he is the most memorable character wild, complete unto himself, amoral, neutral Yet the story of this bear is nothing without the other bear [...]

    This is a multi layrered mystery, and it is also an elegy of grief and loss What does one do with horrific memories There are no answers here, just beautiful musings, and thoughtful, engaging prose I found it to be a page turner, and the writing and characterizations brought it several notches above a standard mystery The lead character is a very nuanced individual, and the story kept me going I would give this one 4.5 stars.

    Cindy Knoke
    Superbly written, psychologically insightful, and informed with knowledge only a long time Glacier resident could possess A bit slow going at times, but well worth the effort to reach the stunning conclusion Highly recommend.

    Set a mystery in a National Park and someone will draw comparisons to Nevada Barr s Anna Pigeon series This mystery is set in Glacier National Park but is nothing like an Anna Pigeon book The prelude give us some backstory on Ted Systead who becomes our main character as we move into the main story Ted is an investigator with the Dept of Interior who is called in to solve the murder of a man tied to a tree in a remote area of the park There are disturbing things about the murder that make Ted re [...]

    I won this in a First Reads giveaway As far as I know, I did not receive an unedited copy so I was astounded by the amount of typos in this book Missing quotation marks, quoted narrative, Lou was once referred to as Victor, LaMatto became LaMotto towards the end of the book, could care less was used frequently instead of couldn t care less , etc I was also disgusted by the animal cruelty in this book I would never have entered the contest had I known because I m one of those weird people that ca [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed this debut novel, and Christine Carbo is a gifted storyteller What initially drew me to the book was the natural setting and the mention of grizzly bears, but the author quickly won me over with her evocative writing and rich descriptions of Glacier National Park and the local community Honestly, I felt like was transported to Montana while reading I also enjoyed the book s flawed but intriguing main character, Ted Systead, Special Agent for the Department of the Interior, w [...]

    Bibliophile
    A substantial part of this crime novel involves looking for grizzly poop Not just any old bear poop, mind you, but poop from a reluctant murder witness It s what happens when you re investigating a murder in the wilderness I like bears and the wilderness from a safe distance at least so this was a treat for me It s slow going and the suspense wasn t exactly killing me, but there were some chilling moments involving grizzlies , some nice nature writing and a sympathetic main character Think I ll [...]

    Mara
    Really impressive debut novel about a special agent for the Department of the Interior investigating a murder in Glacier National Park They pretty much had me at this mystery involves grizzly bears , but even if you don t share my fascination with bears and bear attacks there s a lot to savor here in the beautiful descriptions of the park and gripping plotting and character development I will definitely pick up anything else Carbo writes.

    I give this book 3.8 stars Very close to a 4 but I got a bit bored It I still a good mystery and the writing is excellent This is the story of a man left in the woods and then mauled to death by a bear Several suspects with varying degrees of guilt I figured out who it was towards the end and I was fine with that On the case is Ted Systead special agent for the Department of the Interior, a good cop harboring a tragic grizzly bear mauling from his own past He is forced to team up with newbie, Mo [...]

    Chris Conley
    I adore Montana and so my love for the state kept me going I thought the book was a tad wordier than I usually like I definitely will try the second one because I did like big parts of this one.
