Twin brothers Ty and Cory Bic are on the run. When they encounter a dying deer in the middle of a remote mountain road with fresh tire tracks swerving down into a ravine, they know they have to help. But when they reach the wrecked car the vehicle appears empty, with signs that the driver escaped.
Until they hear a sound coming from the trunk.
Ty and Cory are escaping demons of their own. But what they discover in the trunk puts them in the crosshairs of something darker and more sinister than their wildest nightmares.
Told through a gripping, lightning-fast narrative that alternates between present and past, this unputdownable survival thriller unravels the tangled circumstances that led Ty and Cory to the deer in the road and set them on a perilous course through the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.
Review: This was an intensely immersive read full of murder plots, betrayals, and brotherly love. The beginning was a little hard to read because of the Dad’s abuse but as it went on I was invested in the story. I liked the brothers’ relationship in that they weren’t perfect but they still looked out for each other. Cory was by far my favorite character, he’s a wimp and he’s different, but he’s smart and knows how to handle his brother’s temper. Benny’s character was very aggravating to me but he made the story intriguing so there’s that. The supporting characters were great and made the book come alive in my head. The pacing in the middle was slow since all the puzzle pieces had to be put together but then the plot thickens and when all the pieces and timelines come together and the story begins to make sense it’s all worth it. Overall I ended up enjoying this mystery thriller and rated it 4 stars.
