Staff Reviews


Storm Peak has been around for several years, but if you’re vacationing in Steamboat, or if you’re a local and missed it when it came out, I suggest you pick up this book! This thriller, which takes place in Steamboat Springs, is a fun but nerve-racking read! Brutal murders are happening at Mt Werner … on the chairlifts! After reading this I honestly vowed to NEVER ride the chairlift with a random person, ever again! The story has a real local feel. Check out the mention of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore within the pages!

Description


Ex-Denver police detective Jesse Parker has returned home to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to spend the winter working ski patrol and forgetting about his past. But somewhere out in the snow, a killer has other ideas.
 
It begins when a skier is found brutally murdered. Local Sheriff Lee Torrens asks her old friend to help out with the investigation, and Jesse finds himself reluctantly dragged back into a world of violence and murder he thought he had left behind.
 
As Jesse and Lee work together, the memories of what they felt for each other long ago resurface--even as a madman strikes again and again, leaving no clue or trace as to identity or motive. Because for the killer, there are more important things to do than lead the authorities on...
 
Like choosing who will die next.

About the Author


John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting.

After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years.

John began writing Ranger’s Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.
