The Naturalist (The Naturalist #1)

Professor Theo Cray is trained to see patterns where others see chaos. So when mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop.As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing. But a field trip to Montana suddenly lands him in the middle of an investigation into the bloody killing of one of his former students. As more details, and bodies, come to light, the local cops determine that the killer is either a grizzly gone rogue or Theo himself. Racing to stay one step ahead of the police, Theo must use his scientific acumen to uncover the killer. Will he be able to become as cunning as the predator he huntsbefore he becomes its prey?...

The Naturalist (The Naturalist #1) Reviews

  • Montzalee Wittmann

    The Naturalist (The Naturalist #1) by Andrew Mayne is a book I really enjoyed. It fed my eager science side of my brain, the mystery, and the side that likes a good scare! Brilliantly written with so many little things that had to be thought through...wonderful. Going in my favorites for sure. Lots of suspense, action, mystery, and the science part of it was fun too. I love these kind of mysteries.

    I was pleased to choose this for my September Kindle First but in the end, I must admit to being quite happy I hadn't paid for it. It had stereotypical cliched cookie-cutter people with inane flat conversations and a story full of plot holes and dangling threads. IT WAS ALL TOO EASY! What makes this doubly disappointing is that it actually started out quite well, but it began going downhill at about halfway and by the end had degenerated into madness. If it had been a hard copy vs. a digital cop ...more

    OK, this is yet another of those Kindle freebies, this one from the lending library, that I keep telling myself to stay away from.

    Theo Cray is a botanist college professor who, on a field trip to Montana, gets sucked into a serial killer mystery. He uses his improbable set of nerdy talents to figure it all out, all the while getting beaten, shot and generally mishandled by most everyone he meets along the way. There is a silly love interest, lots of home-spun CSI sleuthing, and a ton of goofy tw

  • Bernie

    Stereotypical protagonist, stereotypical antagonist, plot holes galore, interesting, if questionable, science, and first person narrative in the present tense rather than past tense. An interesting read except for disappointing final chapter or two.

    Personal rant: I hate plot summaries that end with a question. Will he be able to do this before that happens? Makes me lose interest in the book. Stop. Just stop.

    I spent a day last week stumbling around in a sleep-deprived stupor because I had been up late the night before, and it was all this book’s fault since I’d refused to put it down until I was finished. Totally worth it, though. Talk about a page-turner! The Naturalist was exactly what I wanted out of a mystery-thriller—fascinating, addictive, and dramatic in all the best ways. It also captivated the science geek in me by

    3.75-ish. At times it was predictable and slow going... like the word "blood" should freak me out.

    Then it would amp up to full on descriptive dead things.

    Development of live secondary characters was sparse, but I felt like I knew the victims well.


    However, I might read the next in series.

    "What is research but a blind date with knowledge." (William Henry)

    And Professor Theo Cray of the University of Texas at Austin knows research up close and personal. He's an MIT graduate specializing in computational biology. Analyzing data and constructing models brings Theo eye to eye with biological, behavioral, and social systems. Funny how such lofty studies might shine a light on a recent dead body.

    Andrew Mayne starts his story out with a bang. Theo Cray's motel room in a small town in Mon
