Karl Milde's thriller, The Road Ranger

The Road Ranger

A Novel by Karl Milde

Wearing silver aviator glasses to mask his face and riding a silver Indian motorcycle, a hero is born.

The Road Ranger, is the story of Tom Smith, a successful entrepreneur who founded "RoadWheels," now a billion-dollar corporation that transports passengers and their cars from city to city on huge tractor-trailers. While tailing one of the cars his company carried north to Niagara Falls from New York City, a car he believes is smuggling contraband into Canada, Tom is ambushed and left for dead.

An alert Canadian border official, Alonzo Sierra, rescues Tom and brings him to a Toronto hospital where he recovers. While convalescing, Tom decides to feign his own demise to continue his investigation incognito, his true identity known only to his family and the top managers of his company.

Tom and Alonzo follow a trail that leads them from New York to a remote island in the South Pacific in their attempt to find Tom’s attacker, a vicious serial killer. Along the way, Tom learns he’s not the only one who needs help in seeking justice.


Karl's first two thrillers star Juli Gables, a young investigative reporter who, in The Commuter Train, investigates a train hijacking and then, in The Airplane, a fatal accident involving the testing of an innovative new airplane.
