    One of the things I like about writers who have retired from oth

    One of the things I like about writers who have retired from other professions and taken up mystery writing is how interesting it is to find out details of the writer’s former business. In collecting recommendations for stories I have read from Crime Fiction members, I’ve been wandering through my memory of great crime fiction. I remembered R. E. Donald’s SLOW CURVE ON THE COQUIHALLA as an enjoyable story with fascinating information about the trucking industry. I’ve always loved the sound of wheels spinning on the highway and you can hear them in these books.

    Last week when I began book#2 in the series, ICE ON THE GRAPEVINE, I realized that I was under-appreciating just how good the storyline is. Hunter Rayne is a retired RCMP officer, now driving a truck for a Vancouver, B.C., Canada firm. He’s a complex man with good self-knowledge but has varying difficulties telling his loved ones how he feels. Not surprisingly Hunter gets landed with unexplained deaths which somehow he must resolve. A man on a mission, Hunter gets on with the job.

    Another great character in the series is El, a feisty dispatcher, who seems so real she must have had a real life model for her part in the stories.

    These traditional crime stories are full of interest with several surprises. They’re a welcome way to while away a few hours, accompanied by something sippable. Though I’d prefer tea, Hunter Rayne would no doubt select beer.

    And naturally, I’ve just purchased book#3 in the series, SEA TO SKY. Can’t wait!

    I loved Ice On The Grapevine!

    The story was clear, the characters were well developed and the pace was excellent! I like the way Hunter handled himself and will probably read more of these trucker detective mysteries that feature this character. I am interested to discover if a new relationship develops between Hunter and Alora as I view them as possibly being very real people; the writing is that good! I never believed the suspects, Sharon and Ray, were guilty, but the case seems to be lost before it began. There are some twists to the story that were totally unexpected but definitely entertaining! Honestly, I had a hard time putting it down.

    Boring

    According to her own admission, R.E. Donald writes mysteries because she loves mysteries. Well then she better exercise some self criticism before she ventures into the genre.
    The mystery in this book and the circumstances surrounding the main characters are baffling to state it mildly, the denouement is utterly irrational, if not confusing, there are subplots which are never resolved and past event alluded to but never fully explained.
    Most confusing is the protagonist, a former detective of the RCMP turned long-haul big rig driver, who is constantly on the road, yet he has time and can solve mysteries on a pro bono basis, no costs bared. He has a failed marriage, (we have no idea why), a dead best friend whose death still haunts him (we don't know why), and ousting from the RCMP (we don't know why). We do know, however, that after being forced to quit his job as a detective (which he loved), the next best option for him to become a truck driver. Who would have thought?
    There is a supporting cast, equally puzzling, of another truck driver who is totally smitten by his wife, an ex drug addict cum prostitute, now pure as virgin snow (no pun intended). A call girl who is willing to take life threatening risk for complete strangers. A detective, who is completely clueless, but a stud, nevertheless. The victim, frozen to death, but the source of all evil, and his common law brainless wife who knows nothing about his nefarious ways. Enough said.
    On top of all this the major problem with this book is that it is awfully boring. Instead of reading it take a hot shower before going to bed.

    Really liked this book

    I really liked this story. I can see the characters in an old black and white film. It was a fine mystery story, I couldn't guess the culprit and was surprised till the final pages. I recommend this book highly.

    Disappoiting

    Read so many good reviews so I thought I would try this book. Very disappointed, read about half the book but could not get into the characters, etc. Sorry but would not recommend.
