Man this one took me a long time to get through. Everytime it seemed on a straight-a-way you'd have to slow down for a corner. It got rather irritating in the middle but it ended well. It will be awile before I pick up another Chuck Logan book, but I will give him another try someday.

A quick rundown. A bunch of friends are moose hunting in the Minnesota Boundry Waters Canoe Area Wilderness with a guide. A nasty storm came up while canoeing and one of the men sustanded a life threating injury. After many challenges he was transported to a hospital in time. Then another accident happened, which left him with severe brain damage. It looked like an accident, but was it? Who's to blame for what and how is everything going to be resoved? ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061031569, Mass Market Paperback)

In the icy jaws of an early winter, three big-city professionals joined Phil Broker on a canoe trip across Minnesota's remotest lake. Nature's unexpected fury battered and nearly killed them.

But it was Man who left one of them worse than dead . . .

Haunted ex-cop Phil Broker owes Hank Sommer his life -- and now the wealthy writer is in a coma, thanks to a “freak” mishap on a hospital operating table. Broker knows from hard experience that accidents are not always what they appear to be. He suspects foul play, and he's not about to let Sommer fade out of this world so easily. But the trail to answers is twisted and deadly, winding around the comatose man's beautiful wife -- a former exotic dancer -- and the ring of dangerous men still surrounding her.And Broker's determined search for justice and truth is taking him to a dark and terrifying place where he will be forced to fight for his very survival on the coldest night in Minnesota's history . . .

"On one of the coldest nights in Minnesota history, the difference between life and death is literally the blink of an eye for Phil Broker, until recently St. Paul's most successful undercover cop. That blink will convey the urgent warning of a comatose man who knows the dark truth binding Broker to a remarkable cast of characters - a weary anesthesiologist, a brilliant surgeon, a wealthy novelist, his ex-wife (a reformed exotic dancer), and her unrepentant pimp." "For Broker it all began when he agreed to take three big-city professionals on a canoeing trip across Minnesota's most remote lakes. One of the three is horribly injured in a freak October blizzard, and Broker embarks on a white-knuckle rescue against time and the elements, ending with a writer in a coma and his accountant dead. Suspicious of foul play, Broker follows a twisted trail of manipulation and revenge that leads back to the writer's beautiful wife - and a ring of men caught in a deadly competition for her affections."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
