Fact and Fiction
Denver magazine 5280 marked the publication of the local author's latest mystery novel by writing:
Peter Heller’s new thriller is set at a boutique fly-fishing lodge near Crested Butte, where the mountains are beautiful, the trout are tricky, the rivers are cold, and a pandemic lurks. Heller’s invented world, however, may be more believable to Coloradans than the Denver-based novelist and former expedition kayaker’s stranger-than-fiction real life. Can you guess which of these water-based adventures are true and which are fantasy?
The list includes run-ins with Japanese police, Russian military helicopters, and thieving beavers.
