 Vic: Never Give Up, is the 3rd   book in the series The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger

Vic and her friend Lin Li plan a two or three-night camp out at the Grand Canyon before they head for Britain.  They didn’t plan on the Dine’ who want to hang them, the madman, the mysterious cavern, and the slavers (now more commonly called ‘human traffickers’).  48 hours before their ship is to leave New York, they find themselves in San Francisco.  Historical note: They could not hop a passenger plane and zip over.  It was “impossible” for them to make it.  However, never underestimate the ingenuity of a  farm girl with 2 degrees and an indwelling cave girl persona.

En-route they meet a survivor of the Titanic and eventually make it to the Scottish highlands where they expect a more restful trip than what they experienced in Arizona.  They do learn to play peever and shinty and to love Squash.  However, they didn’t plan on the descendants of Christie Cleek or and the herd of beasts which the Picts were petroglyping about .a millennia ago.  And Vic realizes even a heroess can have tragedy in her personal life.   One lesson learned:  don’t wait until it is too late.

Fast-paced and unpredictable, action adventure in the tradition of the adventure pulps of the early 20th Century.  If you like Doc Savage, The Avenger (Dick Benson), Nancy Drew, or Tarzan or any other novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs you will love Vic Challenger.

Vic is preparing for a work related trip up the Amazon river. Vic and her friend Lin Li don’t think this will be a picnic. They expect tough conditions, hot weather, mosquitos, wild animals.  They can handle it.  It’s what they do.  Readers love to hear about visits to rugged locales.  But do they really know what to expect?  Over 50,000 miles of savage waterways course through the  brutal jungles of the Amazon!   Who knows what secrets might lie within an uncharted  area as vast as all of Europe? Of course Vic will also have her senses attuned for signs of Nu, her soul mate from 100,000 years ago.

Lethal encounters begin before the  trip begins! Plus, Vic finds her friend Emma has a serious personal problem, two in fact.  Vic can’t help with one but the other leads to some un-ladylike conduct in the streets of Beatrice.  She and  Lin both decide that fighting bad guys and monsters is easy compared to social and personal problems.  

When Vic and Lin Li finally get to the Amazon, Vic has a chance to taste some great local food including rock grilled pirarucu, roasted favolus, and anona fruit.  The trip has a good start.  Their greatest worry is whether they may run into headhunters.  Turns out there is more to worry about.  

Vic is delighted to learn that her favorite book of all time was not strictly fiction.  It sets Vic and Lin on a search into terra incognita, which should be labeled terror incognita!  They discover people who need help and Vic does not hesitate..  Enroute they deal with giant snakes, caimans, piranha, a greedy guide, but those are unworthy of mention compared to what awaits them in Terror Incognita!

Among the lessons learned, it is better to be prepared and not need to be than to be unprepared and dead; anyone can make a mistake and one mistake does not a bad person make and of course, keep your weapon with you!

 Fast-paced and unpredictable, action adventure in the tradition of the adventure pulps of the early 20th Century.  If you like Doc Savage, The Avenger (Dick Benson), Nancy Drew, or Tarzan or any other novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs or H. Rider Haggard you will love Vic Challenger.
