Sea to Sky

Sea_to_Sky_HJSea to Sky is a traditional mystery featuring Hunter Rayne, a retired homicide detective turned long haul truck driver.

During what was supposed to be a few days of skiing at the Whistler Mountain resort with an attractive female acquaintance, former homicide detective Hunter Rayne finds himself the prime suspect in the RCMP’s hunt for “The Chairlift Killer”.  Hunter has no choice but to get involved in the investigation in order to clear his name.

Meanwhile, trucker Hunter was scheduled to haul a load of freight to Northern California, so he calls up his old friend, biker Dan Sorenson, to take his place behind the wheel. What connects the badass biker from Yreka, California to the most prolific female serial killer in US history? And what happens when dispatcher El Watson ignores Hunter’s warning and sends the biker on a search for clues to the motive behind the murder?

In the midst of the investigation, Hunter’s life gets complicated when the progress of his new relationship is hampered by the appearance of a woman from his troubled past.

Sea to Sky is the third novel in the Hunter Rayne highway mystery series.

  1. Ruth, I’m enjoying your books.
    One suggestion that would help for the kindle format: put a wider space (double paragraph spacing), or perhaps a symbol in the center of the page, to identify where the narrative’s point of view shifts.
    In the current kindle format, there is no way to identify these POV shifts. This causes confusion for the reader.

    • Thank you, Mary, for taking the time to comment and for bringing the spacing issue to my attention.. All of the files I have uploaded to Amazon for Kindle have had double spacing between scenes. I can appreciate how confusing it would be to read the novels without that spacing, and have no explanation for why the Amazon conversion left that space out. I have had complaints before, and thought that all of the files had been re-uploaded and corrected. I guess I was wrong. I’ll try to get that sorted out so it’s not an issue for future readers. Again, thanks.

      Update: I’ve just checked the Kindle previewer and the spaces are there, so I’m more confused about it than ever. I guess it depends on the device the book is being read on.
