Author's Notes

Winslow was a story in the back of my mind since I moved to the wilderness 20 years ago. But I just could not come up with a story. Or quite picture the character until about a year ago. (I am writing this in 2018.) I' have always been a big fan of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series and practically channeled Harry when I finally got the idea for this book. But Winslow, Like C. J. Box's Joe Pickett series lives in the wilderness and solves this kidnapping in a world like the one Joe Pickett ventures into. Winslow, however, lives in the wilderness full-time (as I do) and some readers have told me, to my delight, that they get a real feel of the wilderness in the book.

In my mind Winslow is tough. There is a lot of Lee Child's Jack Reacher and/or C.J. Box's Nate Romanowski in Winslow. (And just so you know, I carried a .454 Casull (revolver) long before I read about Nate. It one of the few handguns that can stop a bear, or more likely and more dangerous, here, a mean moose.) This first book doesn't show too much of that, but I plan on showing just how tough Winslow is in later books in the series.
