Harper spins a wickedly intricate plot, and it's simply impossible to guess
the killer's identity. So don't try ... just fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride!

A corporate bonding program at an Alaskan lodge would be a welcome respite for attorney Lisa Vaughn, if her boss didn't intend the results to decide who wins the firm's next senior partnership slot. Adding to Lisa's stress, the lodge owner is her ex-fiance, Mitch Braxton. The two have unfinished business -- but before they can talk, Lisa falls into a nearby river. Mitch saves her, but the rapids carry them miles from the lodge. During the trying days that follow, one question remains: Did Lisa simply trip, or was she pushed into the icy water? It becomes clear that someone means Lisa harm, and they're capable of anything. Putting aside their past isn't easy for either of them, but they must, if she's to survive. (MIRA, Feb., 400 pp., $7.99)
