"If you are a fly fisherman, it doesn't get any better than the salmon fly hatch on the Deschutes River, Oregon's legendary trout fishing venue. Cal Claxton--a small town lawyer who works to fish--has to pinch himself when his best friend and fishing guide, Philip Lone Deer, asks him to help guide an upcoming trip with a group of executives from a high-tech firm in Portland. But the trip through the remote Deschutes River Canyon turns ugly when a member of the fishing party is murdered. Everyone in the party is a suspect, including Cal himself. Does the fact that the company's value is about to explode play into the crime? And what about the freight line running along the river? All Cal knows is that he better come up with answers because he's suspect number one."--from publisher's description.

The second book in the Cal Claxton series veered off on a somewhat different track from the first. I was expecting more help with the Portland street kids and a long term relationship with the doctor. This one involves Cal's daughter, Claire, far away in Darfur and a series of murders close to home with Cal one step behind the murderer and compromising his principles in order not to be arrested as the murderer. There's lots of action and violence. Not quite my cup of tea, but certainly well written and plotted and a page turner.
