The author of To Touch the Earth Again & The Money Lake

A casual summer hike under a blue sky…on a tourist’s dream of a Maine island…what could possibly go wrong?

A dying philanthropist, Major Victor Remington, invites several cash-starved friends to his private Maine island for a farewell party. Once there, the friends find that the major also proposes to wipe out their debts and enrich them for life…if each person will hike alone about the island. Such action will symbolize past adventures shared with him in the many wilds of the world. Unknown to all but the major, however, is that the heavily wooded scenic island contains a terrible danger. Ah, but the major has a plan to protect his dear friends as he conducts his last grand gesture—a plan with unforeseen flaws and deadly consequences.


Rowland Creitz writes both fiction and nonfiction while living in Stow, Maine. A Debt Too Dear is his second novel.
