R.E. Donaldabout this book: It's a hot July morning on the Grapevine Pass north of Los Angeles. A driver pulls off the highway and discovers a dead body. Who is the dead man? Where did he come from? And why is his body frozen solid?
An ambitious young detective from the L.A. County Sheriff's Office is bound and determined to bring the murderer to justice, but it takes long haul truck driver and former RCMP detective Hunter Rayne to finally solve the case. Hunter's dispatcher, El Watson, persuades Hunter to help clear two fellow truck drivers - a newlywed couple - who are arrested for the murder. El's own attempts to help in the investigation backfire.
The underlying theme is that the objects of our affection - be they wives, lovers or pets - aren't always what we expected them to be.
