Description

A THRILLER SET IN BRITISH COLUMBIA'S SPECTACULAR FRASER CANYON It is Canada Day weekend 1979 and war-injured international news correspondent Paul Rowan, reduced to writing travel columns, is assigned a job in British Columbia's Fraser Canyon. At the super-luxury Wagomaster Resort, he collides with his past in the shape of a long lost love, beautiful Natalie D'Andrea who secretly aborted his child. Rowan is shocked to find Natalie now married to the Resort Manager, a blond-haired muscle man described as "too healthy to be honest." He's the blue-eyed boy of Victor Stavrakis, the Greek Tycoon. Rowan wants to write his piece and get out, but fate intervenes. Vicar's Peak, a bare mountain that has overshadowed the Canyon for 50 million years crashes and blocks the Fraser River. The narrow waterway is packing 2 million gallons (7.5 million litres) a second and water is backing up fast into the Wagonmaster. In addition to nature's cataclysm Rowan discovers that just about all the guests are battling their own wars. Then experts theorize that the great and relentless Fraser River will break through the dam in six days and a wall of water will devastate the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver. Rowan is desperate to win back his old love and together with newly acquired friends get out alive. Their only transport: a 40-year-old Dodge pickup.
