I received this audio book from Audiobookblast in exchange for a honest review.
The fossilized remains of a previously unclassified hominin species are discovered in the Altai Mountains, prompting teams of scientists from around the globe to converge upon this isolated region of Siberia in search of further evidence to corroborate the revolutionary theory that a third proto-human ancestor coexisted with Neanderthals and primitive Homo sapiens.
What awaits them is anything but extinct.
FBI Special Agent Grey Porter leads the investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the appearance of a factory trawler of Russian origin off of the Washington Coast. He finds twelve bodies; all of them exsanguinated through ferocious bite wounds on their necks. According to the manifest, there should have only been eleven.
Whatever killed them is no longer on board.
Elena Sturm of the Seattle PD is assigned to patrol the waterfront renovation project on Salmon Bay.

Something has cut a bloody swath across the Pacific.

McBride's Predatory Instict was well written, filled of thrills, and written with believable characters detailed with depth. I can really appreciate the pain staking detail that McBride puts into his books. As far as thrillers go, Predatory Insticnt was top notch. Everyone seemed to have their own agenda for this newly discovered species. And of course, that new found species has an agenda of its own. This novel was pretty beautifully paced and easy to follow, even given the plethora of characters. Thrillers really aren't my thing, but I stuck with this solely because it was McBride and I was rewarded for my efforts.
