About this title


Mountain man, ex-hippie, and single father, Sheriff Kurt Muller feels like an outsider in his hometown of Aspen, Colorado.  Old enough to remember Aspen's more rustic years, Muller can't quite get used to its identity as "Glamour Gultch," where ski bums, Latino migrant workers, and extravagant jet-setters live in uneasy proximity.  In this volatile mix, Muller finds his personal code of ethics is more and more at odds with the compromises of elected office.

But even for Muller there's nothing ambiguous about a dead man floating down Roaring Fork River.  A beautiful doctor identifies the John Doe as an acclaimed Argentine journalist, and Muller, mesmerized by her stories of brutality and corruption in Argentina, finds himself taking unusual and unprofessional risks to solve the crime which comes to haunt him when the woman vanishes.  Implicated in her disappearance and suddenly the FBI's target in a drug-trafficking case based on his radical past, Muller searches desperately for a way to clear himself and protect his family from sinister forces on either side of the law.  As he presses ever closer to the truth, Muller confronts Aspen's changing ethos and, ultimately, an unresolved family tragedy that has haunted his life.

Tough, inventive, and deeply human, Into Thin Air is page-turning suspense at its very best.
From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

When the body of an Argentine journalist is found floating down Roaring Fork River in Aspen, Sheriff Kurt Muller, aging hippie, single father, and son of one of the resort's founders, finds himself confronted with more than the usual tensions between the chic international celebrity jet set and the local community fighting the resort's enormous growth. A beautiful and mysterious woman comes forward to identify the body, and Kurt, drawn in by her stories of torture and child theft in Argentina, finds himself skirting the edges of professional behavior, so that when Graciela disappears, he is implicated. Meanwhile, the FBI, never fans of Muller's hippie roots, is building a case against him for allegedly permitting drug trafficking in his county. Banished from the force and burdened with guilt, Kurt searches desperately for a way to clear himself and solve the murder, but the closer he comes the more he realizes that the clues are leading him deeper and deeper into his own shattered past -- and the mysterious death of his brother in a mountain accident years ago.
