It began as a weekend among friends. Biking enthusiasts Brick, David, and Derek are off for a weekend of serious mountain biking when a chance meeting with a mysterious and wealthy stranger-and his equally mysterious lady friend-takes them off course and straight down the road of a rattlesnake. As the three men rally around their newly acquired-and newly bitten-friend they remain unaware of the dangers that are still ahead. “Rattlesnake” winds and twists down out of the mountains of Colorado to the streets of Manhattan, where these three friends and their families will learn just how much they can handle when the real rattlesnake strikes.
About the Author
After thirty years of medical practice – delivering more than seven thousand babies – and raising five children with his wife, Paula, Doctor Dahl now splits his time between their homes in the Arizona desert and the mountain peaks of Utah.
Their most recent travels took them to central Europe, where for over a year they managed the medical care of the Latter-day Saints missionaries and researched the health care systems in such fascinating countries as Poland, Romania, Moldova, and Serbia. These European adventures added to Dr. Dahl’s experiences of living on the tiny islands of the Pacific, his Vietnam experience on a navy hospital ship, and time spent in a struggling Liberian hospital.
His previous fascination with ranching, flying, scuba diving, sailing, and serving his country as a major in the US Army all add credence and a realistic twist to his stories.
The best days of his life are those spent with his wife and family, especially with their children and grandchildren. With his fifth novel penned, and another taking shape, he and Paula will stay put in the United States for a while to watch the grandkids grow.
