A woman who can't remember. A man who can't forget. And a person who desperately needs to kill them both! The Katy Trail is a 225-mile long biking trail from Clinton to St. Charles, Missouri. Â It's one of the most beautiful in the world-justÂ the place for Samuel to get away from it all, to heal, and to quell some of the demons from his past. Into his life, however, drops Misty-a mysterious woman with amnesia, who is being chased by a shotgun-toting man intent onÂ killing her. Â Samuel has no choice. Â His sense of honor-honed during many years as a SEAL-forces him to protect her. Â ThusÂ begins one of the wildest bicycle rides in history. From Clinton to St. Charles, the two face floods, mud slides, motorcycle gangs, and vicious pool hustlers. Â They also experienceÂ the stunning Missouri countryside, a host of intriguing local characters, fine wines, great meals, and... love. Through it all, Samuel must get Misty to St. Charles, and help her to recall her past. Â But he must also solve the mystery of why the man with theÂ shotgun is trying to kill her-and now him. It is an action-packed story that will leave you hanging right to the very end. Robert Shoop is a doctoral-level psychologist and adventurer, who has traveled extensively. As an avid SCUBA enthusiast heÂ has made over 1000 dives all over the world. His hobbies include exploration and underwater photography. Robert often hikes, bikes, and swims to compensate for his love of gourmet cooking and wine tasting. While his novels areÂ action packed, his general approach to life is never to race-unless absolutely necessary. He feels strongly that the bestÂ experiences come more from the journey than the destination. As a consultant and personnel manager Dr. Shoop developed insights into human behavior that are reflected in his novels. HeÂ takes those insights and writes about locations that he has personally visited, such as the Katy Trail. While the characters may beÂ fictitious, the activities on the Katy Trail are based on experience, and the locales are real.
