Jean Rover is the author of a new book, Touch the Sky, a suspense novel published by Blue Agate Press.
Something’s amiss in Oregon’s backcountry. A teacher spots a scruffy stranger loitering near the Forest Lake grade school, and there’s a young boy missing in a neighboring county. Then eight-year-old Cody Benson, on an outing with his grandfather in the Big Bat Wilderness area, vanishes. Ken Blake, the deputy sheriff coordinating the search for Cody, thinks he wandered off and froze to death.
