Description

Chee-Chalker: a newcomer to Alaska and the Klondike; an Indian word meaning one who is inexperienced or has no knowledge; a tenderfoot. Bill Norton might be new to Ketchikan but he's no tenderfoot. In fact, he's one of the sharpest FBI agents this side of the Yukon-savvy, tough and resourceful. Norton's come to this rough-and-tumble town to look into a case of a missing person-his own boss-who vanished investigating a heroin smuggling operation. What Norton finds is a string of corpses, a gallery of rogues, and a fleet of fishing boats that specialize in red herrings. He also finds himself warming up to the heart-stopping halibut heiress Elaine Halloway. But is Elaine mixed up in the heroin trade ... or a victim of it? To find the truth Norton will have to make living men sweat-and dead men talk. Because every body fished out of the icy waters has a story to tell, and it will take all of Norton's CSI-like skills to squeeze it out of them. The action crackles and the romance sizzles as the audio version of The Chee-Chalker puts you on the case in a place where the suspense is murder. "The recording production is the highest quality, filled with realistic sound effects and powerful music." -Publishers Weekly "Most entertaining." -Booklist

Professional reviews

"Most famous as the originator of the Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard began his career writing pulpy science fiction tales and adventure novels like THE CHEE-CHALKER. This multicast performance of FBI Agent Bill Norton's investigation into Alaskan heroin trafficking is overproduced and overlong. There's a good deal of gore, violence, and a smidgen of sex in this cold case in the frozen North. One bright spot is a fight and shoot-out on a fishing boat, but for the most part the sound effects and music are the only thing making this thin tale a bit better than it deserves to be. Still, fans of Hubbard will likely be pleased. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
