Publisher's Summary

With her cabin a pile of ashes and her lite in pieces, champion Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold has gratefully accepted a friend's proposal that she drive his motor home up from Idaho, along the Alaska Highway: a breathtaking, 2,000-mile-long route winding past hot springs, glaciers, and ice-blue lakes. But the idyllic trip takes a dark turn when a teenage hitchhiker brings terror aboard. Frightened and alone, Patrick Cutler disappears just before the police inform Jessie that the young runaway is wanted in connection with two shocking murders. Suddenly she is cast into a raging maelstrom of dark secrets and deadly consequences. And the cold and empty road she's traveling could be leading her not to her home, but to a grave in the trackless wilderness.

Alaska RV adventure

Sue Henry has enlarged Jessie Arnold's world with an RV trip from Idaho to her home in a brand new Winnebago motorhome. On the trip Jessie meets with retired fellow RV traveler, Maxie McNabb and her daschund, Stretch. There is suspense and mystery enough to keep one listening until the very end.

As an RVer myself, I found the story so compelling a travelogue, I am beginning to plan my own Alaska RV adventure.

Fun Read

Plenty of action along the road to Alaska, this mystery is a fun, light read. Alaskan musher, Jessie Arnold takes a short job driving a new Winnebago from Coeur d' Alene to Alaska and discovers adventures along the way. If you've ever driven the route, you'll identify with parts of the story; a body found floating in Laird Hot Springs, for example. In addition to the bad guys, there's Maxie and Stretch--a 60 something and her dachshund that make up the cast. Where's book #9?
