Going back is never easy . . . Adam Chase has spent the last five years in New York trying to forget. When he left North Carolina, Adam left for good. Now he has no choice but to return - and being remembered as a murderer doesn't help. Within hours of arriving, Adam is beaten up, accosted and has to face the hostility of those closest to him, including Grace, the young woman he cannot forget. Nothing has changed. And then people start turning up dead. For a man only just acquitted of murder, Adam's homecoming does not go well. And he has a dark streak, a history of violence. Everyone doubts. No one trusts him. And as the past threatens to overshadow the present, Adam becomes the prime suspect for the new murders. He alone can clear his name.

Attending a corporate retreat at a remote resort in Alaska, Lisa Vaughn is plunged into the frigid rapids of the Wild River. Swept away, battered and alone, she has been left for dead. Lodge owner Mitch Braxton knows something is terribly wrong when Lisa fails to turn up for a private meeting to clear the air and close the book on their broken engagement. Embarking on a heroic search that takes him miles downriver, he saves Lisa from the deadly water, but not before they've been swept deep into the wilderness. Far from civilization, the former lovers must put aside their hurt feelings and find the will to survive against nature. There's a killer on the loose and, for now, they must measure their future together in days rather than years.

Author of six volumes of poetry, William Witherup claims literary descent from a long lineage of western voices, among them William Everson, Kenneth Rexroth, Gary Snyder, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. His poems are exceptionally rich and varied in subject matter. In work poems, nature poems, poems of love and loss, and political comment and satire, the voice is distinctive--that of a man who has come through and has welded the beauty and pain of the world to his writings. In addition to the poems presented in Down Wind, Down River, this volume includes work from Black Ash, Orange Fire: Collected Poems 1959-85; Men at Work(1989); and translations of Enrique Lihn, Antonio Machado, and Vicente Huidobro. "Skeptical of civilization, disgusted with its discontents, in him the reformist vein in West Coast writing finds outlet through an occasional tirade against polluters of every stripe, but that is not his strength. His strength is the impulse that moves his shyness to find its voice in understatement, the art that leaves implication suspended until its images explode in depth."--William Everson
