Peter Heller is back with The Last Ranger, a mystery novel set in Yellowstone National Park. It’s about an enforcement ranger who would rather be lost in the woods than dealing with breaking up drunken campground brawls or saving clueless tourists from enraged moose. But then he stumbles upon a clandestine range war involving poachers, rogue scientists, slick wildlife guides, and local-color bartenders, and suddenly, our outdoor enthusiast must figure out where he’s going to stand. Excellent stuff.
