About the Book

Kell Harder came to Port Adams, Alaska, to photograph eagles.  He stayed to regain the success he had experienced in his youth.  What he finds is that change can come suddenly if he really wants to change his prospects.

When Kell takes a photograph of a Russian trawler, the image of a girl mysteriously appears on his negatives.  He convinces himself that he just missed seeing the girl when he shot the photographs, but when his negatives of the girl on the trawler disappear after he refuses to sell them, he isn’t sure what to think.  He has only a print of the girl.

But after Kell sends the print to Anchorage’s News Miner, the daily newspaper’s staff photographers are unable to reproduce the image of the girl.  They want to know what has he done to the print--and Kell has a decision he can’t put off making.
