The Yukon River Quest is a race to the Midnight Sun. Nearly five hundred miles of Canadian wilderness confront the competitors. FBI Agent Tabitha Knowles has trained with her work partner Victoria for months, but on the eve of the competition devastating news takes Victoria out of the race.
Finding the experienced Diana Crenshaw equally stranded seems like a miracle, at first. Though they know nothing about each other beyond their reputations as competitive canoe paddlers, they join forces, neither knowing they’re about to be in the race of their lives from a deadly sniper.
Forced into the deep woods, they struggle against the wilderness, their pursuer and their growing attraction to each other. Tabitha will do whatever it takes to get them both to safety, but she doesn’t know the motive behind the attack—or the answer to the critical question: Which of the two of them is the real target?
Nene Adams delivers a page-turning thriller!
Lambda Literary Review
As the story continues, we're never really sure whose side Diana is actually on, or if she only has her own selfish interests at heart, making the budding relationship between the two women all the more complicated and somewhat threatening... The action is heart-stopping, the fear seems real and almost palpable as the antagonists pop up in the most unlikely places at times when the reader least expects to see them, potentially causing glances over the shoulder while reading.
