October 1980. Richard MacCarter is a hard drinking, down on his luck Vietnam vet working as a chopper pilot in the Florida Keys. Lured by money and adventure, MacCarter finds himself sliding fast into the wild and treacherous drug smuggling underworld. Inside a whirlwind freefall of risk and revenge—caught in a double cross pinned between the DEA and the powerful Medellín Cartel—a lethal game of cat and mouse ensues stretching from the sun-drenched Bahamas to the sleepy barrier islands of Florida’s Gulf Coast. An unexpected twist sends MacCarter north, seeking refuge in a snowy Canadian mining town where he meets a woman named Nicole . . . who inadvertently leads them into dark and deadly waters. A fatal turn of events has MacCarter headed for the coldest place on the planet, Antarctica.
"The idea for Snowblind simmered on a back burner for almost two decades. The story kept coming up again and again, with new ideas and possibilities. How does this man—a Vietnam vet, a loner, a drinker, someone who hates the cold—end up doing a winter-over in Antarctica? I realized there was a much more in-depth tale to tell, and the story evolved into an original standalone novel.
I had an absolute blast weaving this dark tale together. Researching, outlining, and writing the book was more fun—and also more work—than I could possibly have imagined. I hope fellow aficionados and fans of the film enjoy reading Snowblind as much as I enjoyed writing it . . . and find all the revelations, homages, and connections that lie within."
