Book Description

When an eccentric woman suddenly vanishes from a remote mountain cabin in Montana where she lives with her reclusive husband and a dozen captive wolves, area ranchers become convinced that she has been murdered. Others conclude the woman may have been attacked and killed by her semi-wild wolves. A middle-aged male deputy sheriff assigned to the case and a young woman journalist in her 20s, who has just arrived in the area to heal from a near-death experience, bring their own skewed perspectives and psychological baggage in an attempt to investigate and solve what appears to be a vicious crime. What the characters learn from one another, despite vastly varied backgrounds, and what they witness from watching the wolves themselves, may leave the reader with new or renewed respect for both wild and domesticated animals. The reader also may witness the healing power of nature as the characters attempt to escape the psychological demons of their pasts.

About the Author

Writing and teaching writing classes have been Julie Davey's life's work. She writes for magazines, newspapers and her work appears on several online sites. As a college writing professor, she has always advised her students to "write about what you know". She practices what she preaches. In Cry Wolf, Julie's love of nature and her affection for animals combine in the compelling story of four individuals from extremely varied backgrounds who choose to leave mainstream life and settle in the remote mountains of Montana, hoping to erase deep psychological scars from traumatic life experiences. The healing power of nature plays a significant role as do animals, both wild and domesticated ones. Cry Wolf, her fourth book, also contains autobiographical overtones. A former journalist for a Texas newspapers, like Laura the reporter in Cry Wolf, Julie often ignored physical perils when investigating possible criminal behavior in the sparsely inhabited mountains of Northern Mexico. She has also probed into spine-chilling crimes alongside police officers like Cry Wolf's deputy sheriff Duane. Ironically, some of the most implausible events in Cry Wolf, ones that some readers might dismiss out of hand as fiction, were actually witnessed by Julie when she and her parents befriended an eccentric couple living with a dozen wolves inside a remote mountain cabin. Characters in this psychological mystery struggle to find answers to complex questions: Can some individuals unexpectely connect on an undefined emotional level with one another and with animals? Can well-meaning people who live with wild animals ever completely trust or tame them? Does great personal tragedy permanently eliminate one's objectivity? As a two-time cancer survivor whose mother, father and brother all died from the disease, Julie has had to face her own tragic events and either deal with them or be psychologically immobilized. She chose to teach others how to write about their experiences, and her second published book "Writing for Wellness: A Prescription for Healing" came as a result of 10 years of teaching writing to cancer patients and their family members.

More About the Author

Julie Davey has loved the written word and school classrooms since she was four years old and used to sneak into the kindergarten classroom in the school next door to her house, hide behind the "big" kids and wait for story time. In elementary school in Colorado Springs on cold days when she was unable to ride her horse, hike or swim, she spent her time writing stories. She wrote for her junior-high newspaper, was a staff member on her high-school newspaper and editor-in-chief of the Western Graphic newspaper at Colorado Woman's College in Denver. She received her bachelor's degree in journalism and a master's in American Studies from California State University, Los Angeles, before spending several years as a reporter for two Texas dailies, the San Antonio Light and the Laredo Times. She also worked as an associate editor of Engineering and Science Magazine at the California Institute of Technology.

She taught journalism for 15 years at John Wayne's alma mater, Glendale High School, before teaching writing at Fullerton College for 18 years where she supervised production of the campus weekly newspaper, The Hornet, which won the Gold Crown in college journalism from the Columbia University Scholastic Press Association.

She is a two-time cancer survivor, has written four published books and has received many honors and awards for her volunteer work with cancer patients. She still treasures the written word and feels most at home in a classroom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Me 15 Jun. 2014
By Wendy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started to read this, but found I wasn't concentrating on it. Unfortunately, I found it boring, it just didn't "grab" me in the way that a thriller should.

I gave up after a few pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Mystery 10 May 2012
By Beverly Simone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Based on actual events, "Cry Wolf: A psychological thriller" is an exciting mystery that has the reader on the edge of her/his seat. With rich character development, one is struck by how psychologically damaged the individuals in the story are, as they struggle to recover a sense of self. One is able to easily sympathize with and relate to the characters on a very personal level.

There is much symbolism in this book, with the wolves, themselves, providing an eerie yet beautiful backdrop.

Ms. Davey's narrative is filled with wonderfully descriptive scenes of the environment, to such a degree that the reader feels transported into the story and experiences the wonders of wild nature. The rain, dead leaves, the eyes of the wolves, all serve to enhance the mood and tone of the book.

"Cry Wolf" captures the reader's imagination and interest with the initial paragraph and quickly becomes one of those "I couldn't put it down" novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cry Wolf: a lesson here 3 May 2012
By Claudia Heller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very different book with a multi-faceted plot which will keep you reading to the end! Learn some lessons here about how the mind forms opinions, about how people escape society only to find that primitive living has horrors of its own, and how adults can find new direction by moving on in life. There is mystery, love, sadness and happiness, intrigue, and more than a few insights into the way wolves interact with humans. I liked the book because it was different and enticing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Insight into Wolves and the People Who Love Them 29 Oct. 2013
By Michelle Nicolson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fascinating story based on an unusual couple and their love for wolves. I like a good thriller, and this one delivered along with some great insight into the world of wolves and the people who care about them. I'll never look at these majestic creatures in quite the same way again.

I enjoyed the characters, particularly the main heroine. It was nice to read about a woman standing up for what she thinks is right. She's also very inspiration for her efforts to rise above a tragic past. Great read!

By Denise Schiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a fascinating read -- from the information about wolves, the author's excellent character depictions, the setting, not to mention the backstory of the heroine and other characters and how it impacted their interpretation of events. I definitely recommend it!

By KELLY BARBOUR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This thriller kept me glued to each word. I hated for it to end...learned about wolves and more importantly about the spirit of the human being. Never give up on what you believe in...you can overcome being a victim.
