    Former Sgt. Hunter Rayne of the Royal Mounted Canadian Police is

    Former Sgt. Hunter Rayne of the Royal Mounted Canadian Police is retired. Nevertheless, Slow Curve On The Coquihalla is a police procedural as well as a first rate who-done-it. Author Donald plays fair with her clues in this well crafted mystery. Interesting characters and occasionally lyric descriptions of the Canadian West are a bonus. All in all a very enjoyable read.

    Over 300 pages

    Well I read it. It was extremely well edited. The book is based in Canada. It is about an over the road truck driver ex police officer. ( called a constable there ) There is a small amount of cursing, no sex or romance, no gore. Some violence. Murder. This book was okay. I had a hard time getting interested in it and I skipped some pages because it seemed to go nowhere for chapters at a time. My husband really enjoyed this book and so did my brother. I honestly think my problem with it is, it is a man's novel. It sure is not chick lit. It is a stand alone book. Whodunit was a surprize. Read and enjoy.

    Engaging, well written story with realistically developed and very
    likable characters. Involved plot with excellent touches of humor to
    break the tension of a very involved murder mystery that might have gone
    unrealized had Hunter not gotten involved. Looking forward to the next one....

    Slow Curve on the Coquihalla (A Hunter Rayne highway mystery, #1

    Slow Curve on the Coquihalla (A Hunter Rayne highway mystery, #1)
    by R.E. Donald

    A respected truck driver ends up dead in an accident. At first it looks like like just that. But then things
    take a turn when his daughter starts asking questions. She turns to Hunter Rayne, an ex R.C.M.P and
    truck driver for help. Together they are out to find the truth and soon an accident becomes a homicide.


    A great murder mystery with some twists, turns, and surprises. I liked Hunter, I would love to read
     more mysteries with him in it. I truly enjoyed this read!

    This was an OK story but I didn't appreciate the language.

    There were too many loose ends left when the book was finished. The profanity did nothing, in my opinion, to further build or explain the personalities of the characters and is there simply gratuitous.

    I would have liked to give this 3 stars, but it needs a meat cleaver...

    This was a good murder mystery: Plot, interesting characters, involved a non-traditional theme (truck drivers vs. shady lawyers, PI's, femme fatales, etc.). It was a little hard for me since I don't drive, so all the trucking references went waaay over my hrad, lol.

    My problems with it is based on its being:

    --Badly over-written,

    --Repetitive.

    --Includes scenes that are interesting, but which have no significant bearing/relevance to the story (intro to motorcyclist evading a cop)

    --Many passages that leave you confused about the flow of the story or conversation from one scene or setting to another, whose POV is being presented, the timing or sequence of events, etc.

    --I kept thinking that the Coca Cola company had paid for product placement until late in the story when somebody finally orders a Pepsi!!!

    worth reading

    I thought it was good and hope to read more about the main character. I also enjoyed reading about the Canadian territory.

    Here's One About Truck drivers

    I had never read a novel about a murder to a truck driver. This is interesting because you get a feel for what it is like to drive big rigs--exciting at times, dull at others. The owner of a truck company, who is a driver himself, ends up dead--then murdered. One employee is an ex-Mountie, and he takes it upon himself to investigate the murder. Hunter has two daughters who live with his exwife, but he wants to spend more time with them. This might appeal to book club members.

    I liked that it was a setting I had never read about, so learned a lot. It was awhile before I guessed who did it. Well written.

    Excellent summer read!

    As a retired trucker (USA), I found this to be accurate in detail. However, this was a clever and unique plot. Well constructed, quick moving and did not belabor with non-essential detail. The more I read, the harder it was to put down.

    Boring

    This wasn't my type book. Maybe a truck driver would enjoy it.
