Synopsis

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 mountainous Coquihalla highway, his distraught daughter wants to know how and why his rig left the highway on an easy uphill curve.   Fellow trucker Hunter Rayne, a former homicide detective with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who is a father himself, is compelled 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 an intriguing 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.

Slow Curve on the Coquihalla

Good characters based in a part of the world I am familiar with and interested in, southwestern Canada. The main character, Hunter Rayne, is a relatable person with real life issues and no super powers. It is a "feel good" book that does not make one angry with the world, our society or the evil people in it but still keeps me interested. The series reminds me of "The Cat Who" books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having lived in British Columbia for over 42 years I am familiar with most of the places the truckers visited on their runs. This was heart warming and made me feel included in the story, rather than just watching from the sidelines. Great plot with many twists and turns. I couldn't wait to pick it up again to see what was coming next.

I enjoyed this book. It had many suspects and kept me guessing as to "who done it".

Quite a good story and introduction to the trucking industry and its denizens. Although Hunter seems a bit too good to be true, Ms. Donald made him believable. I never read anything by Ms. Donald, but I soon deduced the author was a woman by the amount of detail presented.
