One bright morning in the summer of 2011, three strangers fortuitously meet at the start of Yosemite’s famed Mist Trail – a disillusioned investment banker with two million dollars in cash in his tent, a Chinese dissident artist escaping political persecution but not his own demons, and a middle-aged single woman trying to rebuild her life after a terrible divorce. Each hiker is seeking something as they explore the Mist Trail, but by the end of the climb, two of them will be dead.
Containing elements of satire, neo-noir, and geopolitical thriller, Range of Light at heart is a literary work of fiction that captures and reveals the complex, unravelling lives of three strangers in one of America’s most iconic natural settings. Beneath the thundering falls of Yosemite, these disparate lives crash together in a dramatic climax, revealing both the worst and the best aspects of the human heart.
