    My wife and I began this book when it was serialized in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It was engaging, but moving along far too slowly for our taste, so I downloaded it to our Kindle. It was well worth the $3.99. I liked the book much better than my wife. She complained that the ending was too open ended. I had no problem with the ending at all. In fact one of the characters reminded me of Irene Adler; curious as the principal character Agent Sam Rivers was on more that one occasion addressed derisively as "Sherlock Holmes."The story revolves around Agent Sam Rivers who is drawn into a murder which, on initial review by the local police, is deemed as a horrible accident in which a very wealthy company owner is killed by a mountain lion, cougar, puma,... When Sam and his dog/wolf partner take their first look, Sam think the plot is far too thin and begins his own investigation; much to the displeasure of Sheriff Russell Benson.There are more than enough characters/suspects to go around for Sam, but only one is needed for Benson; all of whom are well cast. All in all, this is indeed a 'good read' and I look forward to the upcoming squeals.

    Savage Minnesota was offered as a daily chapter from a novel in the Minneapolis Star and Tribune. After a week I couldn't stand the daily pace and ordered the book. Although it was somewhat predictable it was an entertaining read with Minnesota references including news item.

    This book was serialized in the Minneapolis Star Tribune this summer, with daily excerpts being printed in the paper. I downloaded the book, and read it this past week. I thought this was a great story line, and it is set as a murder mystery book. I very much kept engaged in the story, and totally enjoyed the local setting of the book in the Savage area. Several mentions of different parts of the Twin Cities and the Iron Range were also fantastic for me! I would recommend this book to others, and Kudos to the local author who write this - Cary Griffith!

    As a Minnesotan, I enjoy reading Minnesota authors whose books take place in our beautiful state. Although cougar sightings are rare in MN, it seems like they are becoming more frequent, so the premise of this book was believable. The ending of this novel left open the possibility of a sequel. I loved Gray--although I don't believe dogs and wolves should breed. However, I haven't yet read Wolves, the first book in this interesting series, in which Sam rescues Gray from a puppy mill. That book is on my to-read list.

    Enjoyed this book. Main character was Sam Rivers and I have found there is one other Sam Rivers mystery book available. Love the local setting in Savage, MN. This author needs to continue to write. Book was featured in a serialized format this summer through the MSP Star Tribune, I purchased the book in email format.

    I liked the book but was kind of disappointed with the author's reason for why Jack McGregor was killed. This is our Book Club book for May. Looking forward to a good discussion. I hear we are having a special guest join us.

    We read this for book club meeting where Cary Griffith was invited to join us! Very fun night with the author.. Learning about his characters, plot, etc. and the process for writing a novel. Now I know the difference between a Mystery and a Thriller!

    what might have been a great summer read was very disappointing. The greatest disappointment was when the author chose to wrap up the book very quickly as if there was no good conclusion to a plot that struggled from beginning to end. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Read as a serial in the Star Tribune. I enjoyed the Minnesota references and the story was okay, but I was disappointed by the ending.

    Started out OK but toward the end the writing was sophomoric. Torture to finish.
