Slow Curve on the Coquihalla
by R.E. Donald
The owner of a family trucking company is found dead in his truck down a steep embankment on the Coquihalla highway, aka the “Highway Thru Hell”. His distraught daughter wants to know how her father, an experienced driver, could have driven off the road. After the brakes on another company truck suspiciously fail on the same treacherous highway, former RCMP detective turned trucker Hunter Rayne feels compelled to find the answer.
As he uncovers signs of illegal activity out of a Seattle warehouse, Hunter recruits an old friend, an outlaw biker, to infiltrate what could 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 fatal curve of the Coquihalla highway, Hunter risks it all to confront the killer.

Ice on the Grapevine
by R.E. Donald
One warm July morning, a frozen corpse turns up at a highway brake check just south of the Grapevine Pass in L.A. County. Ex-homicide detective Hunter Rayne, now a long haul trucker, is persuaded to help clear the two fellow drivers arrested for the murder. His job is made difficult because the suspects, a newlywed couple, won’t speak up in their own defense.
The circumstantial evidence is strong, and a rookie detective from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is eager to score a win. The victim is identified as a second rate musician, and it turns out there were more than a few people happy to see him dead, including the accused.
Hunter’s ex-wife says Hunter is running away from his past, but he feels that the hours of solitude on the road are therapy for the PTSD from his years as a cop. Hunter is forced to butt heads with more than one officer of the law to solve the crime.
