When lions and tigers escape in rural Idaho, town officials, in need of revenue, hold the first safari in America. What nobody counts on are two giant, artifically bred ligers, that also are freed. No cats have ever been larger or more dangerous. Hunters flock to town, but unlike deer and elk, ligers do not run away. They kill people. It’s up to police chief, Jackson Hobbs, and a female, professional hunting guide, Katy Osborne, to stop the monster cats.
What others are saying about Claws:
Intensely atmospheric, Ozzie Cheek’s Claws employs clarity and precision to reveal a rich panorama of a small town entrapped by a big time disaster.
– Keith Abbott, author of Downstream from Trout Fishing in America: a Memoir of Richard Brautigan.
Claws is a tremendous read. Well-written and scary. A lethal combination. I suggest you do what I did, and read it in the daytime. Nighttime reading was too scary.
– Nancy De Los Santos, Writer
