When a well respected truck driver, the owner of a family trucking business, is found dead in his truck down a steep embankment along the Coquihalla highway that winds through the mountains in British Columbia, his distraught daughter wants to know how and why his truck left the highway on an easy uphill curve. This compels Hunter Rayne, a fellow trucker and retired RCMP detective with daughters of his own, to help her find answers.

As he uncovers signs of illegal cross border activity originating in a Seattle warehouse, Hunter recruits an old friend, an outlaw biker, to infiltrate what appears to be an international smuggling ring. But while Hunter follows up clues and waits for critical information from his old friend, the wily biker starts to play his own angles. Finally, putting all the pieces together, there in the dark on the same uphill curve on the Coquihalla highway, Hunter risks it all to confront the murderer.

Slow Curve on the Coquihalla is the first in a traditional mystery series featuring "semi-" professional sleuth, Hunter Rayne. After serving over 20 years in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and becoming a skilled detective, Hunter resigned from the force and took to the road as a long haul trucker. His ex-wife is convinced he is running away from the personal tragedy that made him leave a job he loved. Hunter himself doesn't know why, he only knows he has to keep following the white lines.

From the Author:

This is the first novel in my Hunter Rayne highway mystery series.  I wanted to write about a world I knew, and the kind of mystery that I most enjoyed as a reader.  In the '90s, I was a big fan of mystery writers Elizabeth George and Martha Grimes.  I especially enjoyed Grimes' Richard Jury series, and used it as a rough model for my new series, with the major difference being that the highway mystery settings and characters are uniquely North American.

I hope you enjoy reading about Hunter Rayne and his cast of supporting characters as much as I enjoy writing about them.

R.E. (Ruth) Donald
