A rich plot driven by an ensemble of eccentric characters carved from everyday life.

 

Wade Jones expected to see his kayaking buddies in Colorado for a summer of kayaking. He never anticipated his former college sweetheart, bitter old coach and a mysterious teen to be with them. Each wants something from him. And then there is the river - a giant, snarling whitewater snake. It wants something from Wade, too. Maybe his life...

5.0 out of 5 stars - T.W. Henderson: “A Great Book. I could not put this book down. I really got to know the characters. I could feel their compassion, their hatred, their pain and their love. This book was funny, sad and full of excitement. Well written. “
