Overview

While crossing the Texas border with other illegal immigrants, Hope Alijondro's brother is kidnapped. Hope, a nurse and part Tarahumara Indian, enlists the aid of Hispanic reporter Juanita Costillos in her search efforts. Checking cryptic ads in a San Antonio newspaper, they follow a lead of tiny fossils found on victims of a serial murderer dubbed the 'Puta Killer".


In love with Hope ever since she treated severe injuries he suffered in a Colorado mountain Ultra-Sports race, Temple Carruthers, quits theBorder Patrol to help find Hope's brother. Though his injuries had made him a paraplegic, Temple pursues the kidnapper in a kayak race through deep canyons and treacherous rapids while Hope runs cross-country to head them off-only to encounter the 'Puta Killer".

'I haven't read a novel since grade school, but I read Running on the Edge in four days! William Barnes has created an excellent adventure tale and my only question is, 'Have you begun working on a sequel?'"
