Sinopsis:

Skip Gordon is a thirty-six-year-old owner of a canoe and rafting business in northern California. He recruits five ex-University of Idaho athletes to join him in competing in a dangerous one hundred and fifty mile canoe marathon in the wilds of northern British Columbia. The prize: one million dollars. During training, Gordon's wife dies in a bizarre whitewater canoe accident. Then another teammate is poisoned. The tension mounts dramatically when the ultra-marathon finally begins. During the arduous seven-day marathon, the teams battle turbulent whitewater rapids, frigid weather, grueling portages and an unseen killer, to challenge for the lead.

After a terrifying run through a rampaging river gorge, Gordon's team captures the lead, only to lose two more teammates to the stealthy assassin.

That clue and the subsequent discovery of the unique murder device hurtles the story to a surprising climax and the unmasking of the ingenious

He spent the last several years as a financial consultant, working for Merrill Lynch, Dean Witter, and Paine Webber. He recently left the financial services industry to devote his time to reading and writing mysteries. The author once spent eight days canoeing through the rugged Canadian wilderness. Marathon of the Dead is based partially on his experiences during that trip. He and his wife currently live in the San Francisco bay area.
