Book Description

Aug. 31 2004
She thought she left her darkest nightmare worlds away in the Australian outback. Now, terror will push her to the edge....Shut down by the grief of losing the man she loved, Tally Nowata has come home to pursue the search-and-rescue work that is her passion. When a crank phone call leads Tally and a friend to the top of a treacherous peak, it is the start of a violent game that will force Tally not only to the heights of danger in Wyoming's Grand Tetons, but to the brink of sanity in a race to the death. A lethal predator is closing in on Tally. He's dead set on revenge -- and he's targeted the one thing Tally can't survive without: her child.Hannah Nyala, the real-life tracker who introduced Tally Nowata in the electrifying novel "Leave No Trace," brilliantly defines a woman's determination to embrace life after her spirit is shattered -- and crafts a nail-biting chase across a hazardous landscape, where no one can rescue the rescuer.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this follow-up to Leave No Trace (2002), mountain rescue ranger Tally Nowata is still grieving the brutal murder of her lover, researcher Paul O’Malley. Distant from most of her colleagues and emotionally devastated, Tally soon learns that Rayburn Smythe, the man who ordered Paul’s death, has come to Wyoming to stalk Tally and her daughters. When the girls are kidnapped, Tally sets out on a late-December journey to rescue them from a remote mineshaft. While the book’s premise will intrigue readers previously enthralled with Tally’s heroism, they may grow weary of her incessant self-pitying, which worsens as the novel progresses. Somewhere between her melodramatic first-person prose ("Anger rides high, the heat makes my left arm ache, good, go on, heal, blood flow is a good thing, I’d like to see some of yours flow....") and her overactive imagination, Tally loses her sympathetic edge. When Nyala allows her main character to quit feeling sorry for herself, the story crackles with mysterious characters and vivid imagery, but these instances are too few to make the journey worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars fine thriller Sept. 1 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It has been two years since Tally Nowata returned from Australia to the Grand Tetons in Wyoming with a baby, but without her beloved Paul who died in the desert at the hands of Earl J. Foy. Tally works as an expert search and tracker ranger.

In a blinding storm, Tally and her partner Laney "Lanes" Greer goes to rescue a climber, but when they reach their objective no one is there. They continue to search the mountain, but someone hunts them. Lanes is wounded and unconscious so an injured Tally rushes to get them help. New rangers arrive, but Lanes is missing, but they do find the body of Lanes ex boyfriend who Tally detests. The Sheriff believes Tally killed this victim and Lanes. Tally knows otherwise and plans to prove so once she finds her missing partner only to find her enemy has someone else ever dearer to her to hold as hostage to her behavior.

The heroine is a courageous person who acts like a mountain lioness protecting her cubs as she goes single-handedly to rescue her child. The beauty of this National Park is so visibly described that the audience will feel they are climbing the peaks. Though an action thriller, CRY LAST HEARD enables the audience to get inside the minds of several key players including the star so that readers learn motives and see what is going on through each main character. Hannah Nyala's latest thriller is keep shelf material to be reread for the pleasure of a fine tale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edge Of Life Survival - Again Jan. 4 2005
By Seachranaiche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just like her last novel, Leave No Trace, Hannah Nyala ratchets up the tension and manages to keep it there pretty much throughout the entire book. Her scenes of outdoor survival are unequalled. After Leave No Trace, I thought that no novel could ever again capture such an absolute edge-of-life survival situation or the grit necessary to survive it, but Cry Last Heard pulls it off; Nyala's two for two.

SAR tracker Tally Nowata has issues that have nothing to do with what's about to happen to her. While she goes through the fight of her life, she has to deal with those issues as well and you want to say, Jeez Nyala, give the gal a break, would ya. So, if a reader gets this invested in a character it means that the author has done a pretty good job of defining the character and bringing the character to life. Nyala has done that. As I read Cry Last Heard, I was already thinking about how Nyala might take her characters into another book, hoping that it comes soon.

Like Leave No Trace, Cry Last Heard is a well-written, powerful story.
