Overall I found this an interesting mystery. I will say that I almost set it aside a few pages into the book. I found the first few pages to be unsmoothed, choppy in the dialog. It did help set the tone for the character Mike Irvine but I felt it distracting. As the book changed to the other characters the story was a smooth read.

I did find a good depth in the development of the characters and the descriptions of the area was well done. The book kept my interest and will likely buy the next book.
On the technical side, the chapter breaks were not always clean. I did receive a free copy to review

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

I guess maybe that this book just was not my cup of tea. The couple of `romantic' interests for the main character seemed forced and certainly uneventful; I am really not sure why they were `romantic' interests. The main character obviously has some emotional constipation issues. Maybe I need to read the other Hunter Rayne books to truly understand him.

The story seemed slow to me, which surprised me because there is a murder, missing kid, and a couple (?) of romantic interest. It should move quickly enough. There was also a lot of clutter with Hunter's best friend's history and another trucker's relationship with his dad that did not really seem needed.

The ending was good. I certainly did not suspect who the killer was, but I am not sure that it is very probable. I have a hard time believing it due to the buildup and history of the character involved.

I am sure that I am just missing something because the other reviews are glowing, but it just was not for me. I am giving the story the benefit of the doubt with the three stars, because it seems to be only me that was not enthralled by this book.

This book is number three in a series about an ex RCMP turned trucker turned amateur detective. I haven't read the previous two books but that didn't spoil my enjoyment of this, as everything I needed to know for the story was explained, without it clogging up the storyline.

The scene is set with our hero, Hunter Rayne, having a public spat with the soon to be murdered man and Hunter's subsequent investigation into the circumstances and reasons for the death. As you would expect, this involved plenty of subtle clues and red herrings before we discovered who the killer was.

I enjoyed this book as it worked well as a standalone story, with well-formed characters and locations. I liked the storyline which involved the biker Dan Sorenson (known as Sorry) and this had a nice conclusion with him discovering things about himself. If I was to cite a negative about the book I suppose it was Hunter's `boss' El. She needed to be in the story in order to link Hunter and Sorry and also to facilitate some of the plot, but for me, she was made to be a bigger character than she needed to be.

Overall though, a minor niggle and I would recommend this book to those that like a murder mystery. 4/5.

I have read all three in the series. I liked the story line. They were very well thought out and kept you guessing to the end. The only thing I didn't like about them was the language. The harsh language at times was not necessary or appropriate for the scene.

This author has provided a very provocative plot with just enough characters to never lose interest! The interaction between Hunter Rayne, a long-haul trucker (previously a member of the RCMP), a private PI, cronies of the RCMP and the other side of his life(co-worker, boss, friends)- - both past and present, provide a great mix of suspense in the killing of Mike Irwin and the search for his killer. The characters are well fleshed with good interaction and a well developed plot! Although I am not personally familiar with the Canadian terrain and area where some of the plot takes place, I could easily feel its beauty, etc. I could not put this book down and felt a "kin-ness" with many of the characters. I am looking forward to reading the rest of R. E. Donalds books! In order to review this book I received a complimentary copy of this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. The characters, particularly long haul trucker and former RCMP detective Hunter Rayne, are well drawn, and the scenery in Canada and Washington State adds to the plot, dialog and general package of well done solid police procedural. We learn that Hunter Rayne may have resigned the Mounties and compromised with a more solitary job of trucker, but he is forever drawn into solving the mysteries of life that he encounters as he travels around the country. An attractive lawyer invites him for a ski weekend on Whistler Mountain. He defends her honor during a nasty encounter with her former husband, bully and stalker, Mike Irwin. When Irwin ends up dead on a ski lift, Hunter becomes a person of interest in the Mounties investigation. But the subject list is unending including his weekend date, Mike Irwin's present wife, and almost all of his colleagues, and relatives. Hunter tries to help the investigation, and the story widens as a private investigator emerges with more information about the dead man. At the same time Hunter is called on by an old friend to find her runnaway son. I did not enjoy the number of characters, mostly Hunter's supervisor and fellow truckers, who are called in with side stories to follow up hopeless leads. The ending is quite surprising, and not totally satisfying.
