About the Book
High adventure in the High Sierra, for mystery lovers and outdoor enthusiasts too.
When a Wall Street tycoon insists that his family join him for an annual backpacking trip into the Sierra, some of his children are not enthusiastic about the idea. And that's before people start turning up dead. Ranger Dan Courtwright is ﬁrst on the scene. And with his friend Sheriﬀ Cal Healey, he sticks with it to the terrifying ﬁnish, which is a real cliﬀhanger. Literally.
"Danger: Falling Rocks" gives us a vibrant feel of the high Sierra, a charming new mystery hero, and an engaging, fast-moving mystery written with energy and a nice touch of wit. Paul Wagner's love of the outdoors and his experience hiking and camping takes readers right into the mountains. The zippy writing keeps the story moving along the Sierra trails, through the lineup of interesting, quirky characters, and down the winding mystery path until the satisfying end. It's a great summer read, whether or not you can find your way into the wilderness."

"This is an enjoyable read and reflects a lifestyle that not many people are blessed to lead. As a practitioner of this way of life and a pursuer of wilderness settings, this reading has my seal of approval."
