Review by: Barbara Macartney on Jan. 29, 2012 : star star star star
A new Canadian author, R.E. Donald has penned an interesting read situated in BC and Washington State. The local references offered a sense of familiarity which drew me in. Rayne Hunter quickly developed into both a strong force to be reckoned with along with and an emotionally fragile character. I enjoyed the characters as their flaws surfaced and the story kept my interest high as it motored me along, the plot unravelling.

Review by: Karen on Jan. 27, 2012 : star star star
R.E. Donald, Canadian author of Slow Curve on the Coquihalla, has taken two Canadian traditions and meshed them into an intriguing mystery. The writing flows at a steady pace from beginning to end, keeping the reader just out of reach of the answer to the mystery of who, how and why.

This traditional ‘who done it’ will keep most readers scratching their head. Was it a shipper in the US, a disgruntled employee, or maybe a jealous friend? Will Hunter Rayne find the answers before it’s too late? With well developed characters, plot twists and veiled clues this story travels from Canada to the US and back again on a winding route to the final conclusion.

This is a great read for anyone who likes mystery, intrigue and those that are looking for good reads from up and coming Canadian authors. I have the second Hunter Rayne novel, Ice on the Grapevine, on my list to read. I’m hoping to get to it very soon.
