I didn't read the fine print on the cover of this book before I bought it. If I had, I'd realized it wasn't her normal true crime book, but a novel BASED ON true events. Still, I'm glad I gave it a try. Even though there is a warning on this page stating the book has explicit scenes, I didn't realize quite how explicit it would be. I read most of the book and finally put it down a few chapters before the end. The book is well written, but it is a far cry from the factual based true crime most Ann Rule fans enjoy reading. If you like novels with action and explicit content, you won't be disappointed. If you like true crime, this book will meet your expectations a bit differently.
Upon looking up the description again, I then knew this was Ann Rule's one and only fiction! She should do more of these! This book had me transfixed from start to finish. The two main characters in this scary novel are excellent! Although I found the "victim" to be a little over the top by being annoyingly "weak", the perpetrator was very realistic in my opinion. I truly enjoyed this interesting read. Five stars for keeping me on the edge the entire book!
In this story of psychological suspense, Sam Clinton, veteran of a big city police force, is now working in a small backwater sheriff's office in the state of Washington, booze and personal travails having soured him on life. There, he has been partnered with Danny Lindstrom, who is married to his childhood sweetheart, Joanne.
Danny and Joanne have been trying to have a baby but have not been successful, which has put a bit of a crimp in their marriage. So, they decide to go on a camping trip into the Cascade Mountains to reconnect with each other. Unbeknownst to them, someone else decides to take the same journey, someone whose intentions are less than honorable. Consequently, something goes wrong, and Joanne's journey takes a turn for the worse. Enter Sam, who comes to the rescue, but no good deed goes unpunished, as the reader will soon see.
Unfortunately, this book does not measure up to the author's non-fiction books. The dialogue is stilted, and the characters, for the most part, are generally unlikable. The plot has its moments, but eventually even that loses steam because it degenerates into something less than believable. While some fans of the author may find a modicum of enjoyment in reading this book, I did not.
