A cerebral thriller from the Great Land
From the Author
At 30 below zero in blowing wind, I had a flat tire on the Alaska Highway.
It was early in the morning and the sky was pitch-black. The only light came from my car.
My fingers were numb even before I removed my gloves. I could feel the burn on my cheeks as I zipped up my coat and wrapped my scarf around my face. As I loosened the lug nuts and found the spare tire, I realized that this scenario was the perfect setting for a thriller.
I pictured a woman stranded on the highway with no place to run but the frozen wilderness.
A man was chasing her. Frozen Highway
was born. Frozen Highway
, is, at its heart, a story about survival in a world gone mad. The novel pits
Kate Hendricks, a Millennial, against Sherman Croft, a man clinging to the last century. Where Hendricks is the distillation of all the quiet heroes I've met in my time working for the Army, Croft conveys the essence of the many isolationists and end-timers I've met living at the edge of civilization here in Alaska.
Both believe they are fighting for freedom - but their worldviews could not be more disparate.
