Publisher's Summary

For Will Innis and his daughter, Devlin, the loss was catastrophic. Every day for the past five years, they wonder where she is, if she is - Will's wife, Devlin's mother - because Rachael Innis vanished one night during an electrical storm on a lonely desert highway, and suspected of her death, Will took his daughter and fled.
Now, Will and Devlin live under different names in another town, having carved out a new life for themselves as they struggle to maintain some semblance of a family.
When, one night, a beautiful, hard-edged FBI agent appears on their doorstep, they fear the worst. But she hasn't come to arrest Will. "I know you're innocent," she tells him, "because Rachael wasn't the first...or the last."
Desperate for answers, Will and Devlin embark on a terrifying journey that spans 4,000 miles from the desert southwest to the wilds of Alaska, heading unaware into the heart of a nightmare, because the truth is infinitely worse than they ever imagined.

Extremely entertaining from start to finish. A strong female lead who may or may not be a good guy. A few twists and a mystery that needs solved. This book starts in Arizona goes through Canada and ends up in the middle of nowhere Alaska. It involves a family man lawyer, a former FBI agent, a teenager with Cystic Fibrosis, a rogue special forces group that goes bad, a truck driver and the Alaskan Mob. What's not to like? The rating is a little low in this because some women who didn't read the reviews and who had absolutely no idea what they were getting into rated the book. This is a shoot-em up mystery that involves lots of sex and violence and I don't believe the author has tried to hide that at anytime. It is also written by Blake Crouch, who is famous for this type of book.

The book has flaws and is a little unbelievable in parts. A father taking his child into some very dangerous situations, one too many twists (as mentioned by other reviewers), people getting the crap beat out of them or frost bitten or chewed up by wolves and then coming back from the dead so to speak to kick ass (as mentioned by other reviewers). For me the entertainment value, the fast pace, the evil characters, and the real feeling of what it might be like to lose a loved one in this way, over shadowed the flaws and kept the book at a five star rating for me. I am really liking the books I have read by Crouch so far and will listen to more. I see too, I believe they have made a series on one of the channels about his Pines series. I hope to catch that.

Jeffrey Kafer does a great job and belongs in one of the top two tiers of narrators.

Better Than A Good Movie!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This audiobook is the best of Blake Crouch's I have listened to yet. The narration is outstanding as well. Very intense, suspenseful, yet realistic, you'll be entertained to the end - never ever dull or slow!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Crouch throws you curves you don't see coming even when you expect one! This is a great story, narrated very well.

What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

I'm not able to tell you why Kafer is good - just that he IS. Narrators either make or break a good book...this is a "make."

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It is the kind of story that you recall for days or weeks to come.

Any additional comments?

Listen & Enjoy Blake Crouch. He is now absolutely one of my all time favorite in his genre...thriller, suspense.
