Description : McTavish's second collection of stories, wisdom, and warnings about the trucking life. For a journey from a winter colder than a banker's handshake to summers hotter than a skidoo suit in a sauna, you don't want to miss this eagerly anticipated sequel. Throughout his thirty-seven-year career, there were few areas of the trucking business that Don McTavish -- born story-teller and renowned joke-teller -- was not involved in. After telling many wacky and comical anecdotes, McTavish was convinced by his friends and family to publish his stories, and has since had a regular feature in trucking trade magazine Highway Star called 'This Ain't No Bull.' McTavish was born in Calgary, Alberta, and is now retired in Vancouver, BC.

Description : RCMP officer David Leith and his team investigate a series of murders from the snowbound Hazeltons to Lower Mainland B.C. in this atmospheric new crime series. Cold Girl A singer vanishes in the snowbound Hazeltons. Has she been snatched by the so-called Pickup Killer? Investigator David Leith has much to contend with — punishing weather and wily witnesses, plus a young constable who’s more hindrance than help. Suspects multiply, but only at the bitter end does Leith discover who is the coldest girl of all. Undertow RCMP detective Leith fears he’s made a mistake bringing his family to North Vancouver. His first Serious Crimes Unit case has rocked his senses: who would brutally murder a mother, father, and baby? Detective Dion, also regretting the move, has returned to the city where he no longer fits in — but is he back in the swim, or destined to drown?
