One of America's most acclaimed suspense writers now serves up a bracingly original nail-biter that takes us deep into the rugged terrain of the Utah mountains. Sherry Carrigan O'Toole can't seem to apply the prescriptions she offers in her bestselling self-help books to her own life. Six years after her marriage to Brandon disintegrated and he won custody of their son, Scott, there's no room in their lives for her. Hoping to win back the teenager's heart, Sherry arranges a week's skiing at the plush SkyTop Village resort. But Scott has other plans. Determined to evade his mother's clutches, he jumps at the chance to join a foolhardy adventure: flying a Cessna through a nighttime storm to Salt Lake City for a Metallica concert. After the plane crashes, Scott is lost and alone in the frozen wilderness, miles from anywhere anyone would search for him. As Brandon and Sherry revisit the old battles that tore them apart, they have to fight a bureaucracy that wants to abandon the search even as their son struggles to survive impossible odds. Barely alive, Scott finally finds a cabin for shelter. He thinks his troubles are over. When he discovers the truth about the man who lives there, however, it's clear that his terror has hardly begun. With his latest page-turner, John Gilstrap cements his position among today's most ingenious thriller writers.

It is a good thriller, but some of the plot lines verge on being unbelievable.

I have read some of Gilstrap's books they are all good reads. It begins when 2 young men fly off into a snow storm to see a hard rock concert. Of course its only an hour from the ski resort where one guy works and they younger is escaping his Mom. The plane crashes and then follows characters to the end of the book. Good characters, nice plot and some thrills and chills. Good book.

This is my 1st Gilstrap novel. Highly recommend it as a non-stop page-turning adventure. Will definitely be reading more of his books.
