Summary
Environmental journalist Craig Welch delves into the wilds of our nation's waters and forests in search of some of America's most unusual criminals and the cops who are on a mission to take them down. This examination of the international black market for wildlife is filled with butterfly thieves, bear slayers, and shark-trafficking pastors--all part of one of the largest illegal trades in the world. In particular, the author looks at the systematic theft of the geoduck, a shellfish fashionable as seafood and found in Puget Sound
