When we met up with Steve for the first time this season at Carnage Canyon, CO, he told us he had just published his book. I didn't know he was writing one, but the descriptors - hinting at contemporary mountain town vs. environmental terrorists - screamed, 'Read me!' The title could as easily have been, 'Hawk's Camp For Wayward Boys' as you're taken along on an action adventure in an 'exotic British truck' while the characters fish, visit a mine, camp, hit brew pubs, and in general wheel through mountain scenery so well described you'll be trying to figure out if you've been there. In addition, Steve offers glimpses into small town life, the people, personalities and philosophies, and how they interact. Steve's town is named Gold Hill, but I will never look at Breckenridge in quite the same way. Check it out. Lurlie Bickford, Book Reviewer, Solihull Society Newsletter.Was this review helpful?

Gulliver 'Gully' Wells is a federal employee that loves to flaunt the 'powers' bestowed upon him by virtue of his position with the U.S. Forest Service. Ranger Wells was also a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, and filled with socialist ideals and utopian dreams. Gully is drawn into a plan by a group of subversives that threatens the almost completed Bear Basin Ski Lodge. But when things begin to go awry, his dreams of utopia become a raging nightmare. Fear Makes A Traitor is filled with descriptive text about the beautiful mountain scenery and envelopes the reader with a sense of being in the middle of the action. Mr. Heredia rounds out the reading experience by weaving several secondary characters into the storyline to create some mystery and intrigue. Fear Makes A Traitor is a believable plot that could take place almost anywhere with just a change of scenery. It really makes you stop and think about what could be happening right in your own back yard. The surprise ending is sure to catch you off guard, as it did me. Get your copy today and enjoy this entertaining story. Charles DeNosky, Writers Unlimited Reviewer, Member of Reviewers International OrganizationWas this review helpful?
