The author brilliantly uses a fairly simple plot to weave a tension filled thriller. You won't find any complex government plots, improbable escapes or conspiracies. Instead we get a well written story that has engaging characters (even a hero who likes to say "you all" a lot).
Jake Crosby and his young daughter Katy go to an Alabama hunting area to hunt wild turkeys. This simple father/daughter outing becomes a nightmare when a group of dangerous men with nothing to do, decide to rob the camp house where Jake and Katy are staying. Jake is forced to shoot one of the intruders but the others vow revenge and relentlessly pursue Jake and Katy through a heavily wooded and remote area.
The writing is what makes this one good and does a good job mixing in bumbling law enforcement, poor cell phone service and additional victims that end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Jake must constantly stay one step ahead of the bad guys while slowed down by a shoeless Katy and another young lady with an injured leg.
This is the type of story that transports the reader directly into the fray and as the Sheriff's men seem to miss all clues, you want to scream out to them. The book is difficult to put down so be forewarned.
