Mr. Hale has published both fiction and non-fiction. Do not consider him prolific -- twenty years between books is not prolific by any measure. But the author claims to have several more books in him. We'll see...

  • NEW! What Happened In Craig: On a foggy afternoon in September of 1982 the Investor, a salmon fishing vessel, was engulfed in flames near the tiny village of Craig, Alaska. All efforts to stop the blaze were repulsed by the heat and fury of fire—until the blaze had run its course. MORE>>>
  • Butcher, Baker: a true-crime work about serial killer Robert Hansen. Hansen murdered up to 35 young women in Alaska over the decade starting in the 1970s. A world-class hunter and pilot, he used the Alaska bush as the ultimate killing field. MORE>>>
  • Huck Finn Is Dead: a novel featuring Carney James, a fourteen year old runaway. His father's in jail. His mother is missing in action. A well-meaning judge sends him to live with a Christian family. When things don't work out as planned, Carney ends up on the streets. Thus begins an epic journey across America. MORE>>>
