At the centre of this wonderful book is the great Columbia River-rich with history, myth, and riverfolk, as well as progress and its effects. Cody's canoe trip from the Columbia's Canadian headwaters to where it meets the Pacific Ocean, churns up a lively portrait of the river and the land through which it courses. The Los Angeles Times Book Review praised the hardcover edition with "Voyage is neither an environmental treatise nor a search for [Cody's] own soul. It's about the taming of a river and, from water level, what that taming has meant.....Cody is a clear writer with strong descriptive powers." The hardcover edition was awarded the 1996 PNBA Award.
“If you want romantic suspense that has teeth...Sandra Brown is your gal.” ―Stephen King From the bestselling author of Hello, Darkness and Smash Cut comes another steamy thriller of murder, love, and betrayal featuring a Savannah homicide detective fighting attraction in the heat of the South. When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows discretion and kid-glove treatment will be key to staying in the judge’s good graces and keeping his job. It’s an open-and-shut case: Elise, the judge’s beautiful trophy wife, interrupted a burglary and killed the intruder in self-defense. Yet Duncan is suspicious of the beautiful woman’s story of innocence and his gut tells him her account of the shooting is only partially true. Determined to learn the dead man’s connection to the Lairds, Duncan investigates further but soon finds his career, and integrity, in jeopardy. Despite his suspicions, Duncan is increasingly drawn to Elise―even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect. When Elise seeks Duncan out privately, he initially dismisses her incredible allegation as the manipulative lie of a guilty woman. But if she’s telling the truth, then that single fatal gunshot at her home takes on even more sinister significance, possibly involving Duncan’s nemesis, the brutal crime lord Robert Savich. And then Elise goes missing... With plot twists and palpable suspense as only Sandra Brown can write, Ricochet is a gripping thriller of a decent cop’s worst enemy may be his own conscience, and placing trust in the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.
