Overview
Trying to put an abusive relationship behind her, Amy Robinson joins a group of young people on a weeklong kayaking trip in the wilderness of British Columbia. She makes new friends, and together they face the thrills of the rapids and the hungry bears. But the biggest danger facing Amy has nothing to do with nature. Her ex-fiancé Tyler has followed her from Vancouver. He’s on the run from drug gangs and in desperate need of cash to help him flee the country – the cash Amy has saved for her expanding hair-salon business. Luckily for Amy, one of her new friends is a cop, and although she’s wary of his affection at first, Amy is gradually drawn to Police Detective Ben Malik. But Tyler sets an elaborate trap to lure Amy away from the safety of her companions, away from the beauty of the landscape and into an ugly underworld. When the ruthless thugs chasing Tyler catch Amy instead, she faces torture and almost certain death. Her only hope is Ben, but can he find her before it’s too late?

About the author
ULLA HAKANSON grew up in Umeå, Sweden. She worked as a draftsperson in Stockholm for six years before moving to Toronto, Canada, where she took a degree in Commercial Art and opened her own graphic design business. Upon retiring, she moved with her husband to Vancouver Island where she turned to writing fiction. Seduced by the raw power of British Columbia's wilderness, Ulla began using the province's rugged landscape as settings for her novels. Small towns, quaint villages, even thriving cities provide a backdrop, adding to the flavour that is distinctly west coast. When not writing, Ulla and her husband enjoy exploring these areas as they kayak through the crystal clear waters along the shore, or hike the many trails that wind through the bush. THE PRICE OF SILENCE is her first novel.
