The wilderness is unforgiving, but Steven faces it head on, in the forms of a massive Grizzly and a black bear. Caught between the two, he barely survives their ‘tug of war.’

Found on death’s door by his uncle, Steven continues his investigation as he heals from multiple injuries. The answers don’t come quick or easy.

Enlisting the aid of his number one suspect, Steven’s led into yet another dangerous situation…

A sniper, who’s made a promise, he intends to keep.

The struggle this time is more than personal…

This one just may cost him his heart.

This is the third book in a series. You could read it on it's own, but to understand all the relationships that are involved you need to have read at least the first one.

Detective Steven Quaid is at his cabin in the wilds of Alaska preparing it for his honeymoon and trying to decide on his working future. His fiancée is in the city for business and organising their wedding.  When  he returns from a hunting trip he finds himself suspected of murder. He has to run to clear himself, but the Alaskan wilds are a dangerous place to be on the run. The cold or the animals could prove fatal. 
Sarah Palmer  was enjoying the happiest day of her life until she realised how much danger she and Steven were in. Abducted by someone who is obsessed with her, she knows this could be a very dangerous situation for herself and her loved ones.
This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. The "bad guys" will stop at nothing to get what they want. Multiple murders just to set the scene. When the person who is obsessed with Sarah has an unlimited amount of money to buy those who are willing to do his wishes,  it makes it very hard for the authorities to trace what is happening. The hunt to find Sarah is all Steven thinks about, but he has to survive to do it.  Sarah has to battle the physical and mental torture while she waits for rescue.
This is a book you will find impossible to put down. I loved it.

At one time Alaska called to me and I answered. I learned to sleep under the midnight sun, survive in below zero temperatures, and hike the Mountain Ranges. I've traveled from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, and the memories are some of my most valued. The wonders, mysteries, and incredible beauty that is Alaska has never left me and thus now influence my writing.
Despite my adventurous spirit, I achieved my educational goals, married, and I have two wonderful sons. Writing is now my focus, my newest adventure!
