Four college "friends" take a hike on the Appalachian Trail. The weather is unpredictable. One student is a coddled homebody who has no business being on such a trip, but peer pressure always wins out. Besides with three other people, what could go wrong? In the middle of nowhere with help unavailable, we have the classic setting of "kids-in-the-horror-movie-with-a-killer-stalking-them."
I recommend "Trail of Deceit," if only to learn the original story as it was written because Hollywood is sure to beat a path to the authors door for this one.
Two couples set out on a hiking trip along the Appalachian Trail. Diane and her boyfriend Bill have some hiking experience; Linda and Jerry, not so much. They agree to leave their cell phones behind. To add to the mix, one of the four has a hidden agenda that will greatly impact the lives of the other three.
For a short time, they enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Appalachian Trail that has overwhelmed thousands of nature lovers over the years, but everything is about to change. The four turn out to be unprepared for the danger that befalls them as a stalker in the form of an experienced woodsman enters the scene bringing first fear, then terror and eventually death onto the scene.
House demonstrates his brilliant story telling technique throughout the pages of "Trail of Deceit". He knows the challenges ot the AT and he shares these with his readers. His survival scenes are awe inspiring.
Latch on to this enthralling novel in either paperback or as an ebook. Get your copy from Amazon and add your review to the growing list.
The reason I'm only giving this three stars is that I felt let down by the last 25% of the book. Here's why:
1) It dragged on just a bit too long, it lost the desperation.
2) The "God will take care of everything" comments. I rolled my eyes every time.
3) The farcical "romance". Sure he's a serial murderer and rapist, but he's not a bad guy! Ugh.
4) The end. Way too abrupt (and more of the "God took care of everything" crap). Could have left out some of the filler in the last 25% to expand on the "after" part.
I was wrong on both counts, becoming completely absorbed in the book until the last page. Well written and edited, I would go as far as to say one of my best reads of the year.
This author has the ability to write using just the right number of words, never embellishing or lacking the correct word to describe situations. Highly recommended.
