The Arkansas River is the heart and soul of Salida, Colorado. It fuels
the small town's economy and thrums in the blood of
twenty-seven-year-old Mandy Tanner, a river ranger. When a whitewater
rafting accident occurs, she deftly executes a rescue, but a man dies
anyway. But it wasn't the river rapids that killed him, it was poison.
Tom King was a rich land developer with bitter business rivals, who
cheated on his wife, refused to support his kayak-obsessed son, and
infuriated environmentalists.

Mandy's world turns upside down when her beloved Uncle Bill—the
respected owner of a raft outfitting business—dies of a heart attack.
Suspicious that his death is somehow connected to Tom King, she goes
on an emotionally turbulent quest for the truth—and ends up in
dangerous waters.

Beth Groundwater writes the Claire Hanover gift basket designer
mystery series (A Real Basket Case, nominated for the 2007 Best First
Novel Agatha Award, and To Hell in a Handbasket, released in May,
2009). She also writes the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Adventures mystery
series starring whitewater river ranger Mandy Tanner. Beth lives in
Colorado and enjoys its many outdoor activities, including skiing,
hiking, and whitewater rafting. Visit her website at and her blog at
