"One of the hottest mystery and suspense novelists to come down the gunbarrel in a decade." —Oregon Magazine

The clearest, coldest waters imaginable are found in Oregon's North Umpqua river in springtime. Here, ex-intel­ligence agent John Denson goes to hook steelhead trout. Instead, he finds himself entangled in a deadly net of inter­national intrigue and conspiracy. To free himself, he will need all of his ingenuity and resourcefulness. He will also need a whole lot of luck just to stay alive.

From the best-selling author of TROTSKY'S RUN

"A pace as swift as the Umpqua." —Publishers Weekly

"Nicely done." —Houston Chronicle

"The Denson books... sophisticated, well-written and excellent examples of the genre."—The New York Times Book Review
