Episode 56: Russell Heath reads from Rinn's Crossing
They had been friends who fought side by side for better things. Now both were running from crimes neither could have imagined of themselves just a few days ago . . .
"A thrilling work of serpentine intrigue and crisp characterization" --Kirkus Reviews (starred review).
Heartsick that the towering trees that once sheltered him are being cut, Rinn van Ness commits a minor felony on a remote Alaska island. A woman he once loved, Kit Olinsky, is arrested for his crime--and the murder of a Tlingit elder broken by the loss of the Native way of life.
Out on bail, Kit fights a scorched-earth battle in the state legislature to save the Alaska she loves. It's not a battle she can win. But she will fight to the end even if she has to betray her secret lover, a Tlingit fighting desperately for what was promised to his people a generation ago.
Rinn slips out of the forest to protect Kit, never suspecting that he has more at stake than a lonely prison cell.
Heath's plotting is taut and propulsive, and the pages seem to fly through your hands.-- Red City Review (5-star review)
The ending was exceptional and will bring a tear to your eye. --Readers Favorite (5-star review)
