DEATH...

Leaving behind the headaches of local law enforcement in Alaska's North Slope, Inupiat police officer Ray Attla welcomes a few days of vacation with his wife and four-year-old daughter at a resort outside of Anchorage. He doesn't, however, count on an early morning bike ride down the rocky mountain trails that sends him flying through alpine paradise, crashing into a thicket of berry brushes...and landing just a few paces from a dead body.

AND DECEPTION

It looks at first that the victim fell from a ski lift, and Ray figures he'll report the accident to authorities and be on his way. It's well out of his jurisdiction, and he's determined to stay "off-duty." That plan changes when he meets the local lawman, an amiable sort who doubles as church pastor and hasn't got a clue how to proceed in a case with more questions than answers. And when Ray's little daughter, who is sensitive to traditional Eskimo ways, innocently begins to tell her daddy details of the case, Ray cannot beg off. Before long, he discovers the mysterious victim has led a murky double life of lies, adultery, mob connections, and industrial espionage. His vacation officially over, Ray walks a thin line between Feds and a dead man's dangerous secrets. A line that, if crossed, could turn this trip into Ray's last....DEATH...
