    Rapid Descent a slow ascent

    I usually greatly enjoy Gwen Hunters books. This one was a little disappointing as it was very slow to get into because of all the technical writing about rafting and kayaking. Not sure if it was all necessary to the story line. It was, however, a good read that I passed onto my kids who were looking for a good read without a lot of romance, etc.
    The last 1/2 to 2/3 of the book was true to her compelling style. And the plot twist at the end was a breath of fresh air that made up for the slow start (I usually read one of her books in two days at the most, this took the week).

    strong police procedural with a hint of romance

    On their second honeymoon, Joe and Nell Stevens went whitewater rafting. A nasty accident left her with a concussion and injuries from head to toe. Joe simply vanished. She got help, but in spite of a major search they never found Joe. The lead police detective Nolan Lennox believes the widow got away with murder.<BR/><BR/>Seven years later, Nolan persuades his son Orson, also a cop, to investigate. His gut totally differ from his dad¿s belief as he feels Nell is innocent watching her raise her son with love and run the rafting business she and Joe opened up together. When Joe¿s corpse is found, his family makes noise that his black widow killed their son; her motive being his money. Even Orson begins to have doubts whether Nell is innocent.<BR/><BR/>RAPID DESCENT is a strong police procedural with a hint of romance between the lead cop and the prime suspect that is kept simmering for the most part, which augments the inquiry into whether she killed her spouse or not. The cast is strong especially the lead pair and their extended families who believe she is a cold blooded killer while the story line is faster than the whitewater rapids as Gwen Hunter provides no respite from her superb thrilling story line.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
