Peril on the Katy Trail
A woman who can't remember. A man who can't forget. And a person who desperately needs to kill them both! The Katy Trail is a 225-mile long biking trail from Clinton to St. Charles, Missouri. It's one of the most beautiful in the world-just the place for Samuel to get away from it all, to heal, and to quell some of the demons from his past. Into his life, however, drops Misty-a mysterious woman with amnesia, who is being chased by a shotgun-toting man intent on killing her. Samuel has no choice. His sense of honor-honed during many years as a SEAL-forces him to protect her. Thus begins one of the wildest bicycle rides in history. From Clinton to St. Charles, the two face floods, mud slides, motorcycle gangs, and vicious pool hustlers. They also experience the stunning Missouri countryside, a host of intriguing local characters, fine wines, great meals, and... love. Through it all, Samuel must get Misty to St. Charles, and help her to recall her past. But he must also solve the mystery of why the man with the shotgun is trying to kill her-and now him. It is an action-packed story that will leave you hanging right to the very end.
