Product Description

Product Description

Robert Crain’s perfect life is being torn apart... While recuperating at home from a car accident, men in ski masks break into his house and render him unconscious. When he awakens the next morning he is confronted by a nightmarish truth -- that his wife and son are gone.

But it doesn’t take long before he learns he’s not dealing with ordinary kidnappers. They aren’t interested in ransom money. No, what they want is unthinkable -- to see Robert fight other strangers to the death… And if he refuses, he will never see his family again.

Accompanied by his loyal German shepherd, Robert descends into the darkest journey of his life, awaiting the kidnapper’s next dreaded appointment -- and coming out of it alive. Joined later by his best friend Will, he will stop at nothing to rescue his wife and son who are being held by a haunted psychopath.

Robert has always had questions about his family’s past. About a mysterious oblong box he discovered in his grandmother’s attic and his grandfather’s deep fear of what lurked within a mountain glacier. Beginning with a ghost that stalked him in the forest while his was a boy to a violent trip he and Will survived in Mexico, Robert has always believed that some force from the distant past would one day come for him.

Heart-pounding and unpredictable, RED MOUNTAIN is a journey between the past and present, and what happens when the two collide.

5.0 out of 5 stars So intense, keep holding your breath 20 July 2012
By Frenchie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As soon as I dived into Red Mountain, I was swimming into a myriad of emotions. Fear, self doubt, anticipation and a feeling that failure was not an option. The story is so well written that it keeps you captivated from the first word and you need to know what happens next. Admittedly, it is not the easiest read, because the story is so intense, and so many past events are linked to the present that you have to keep alert.
This is the story of a man whose wife and child have been abducted by psychotic thugs. But the ransom asked is not money. He will do anything to get his family back, but is he prepared to commit murder for them? because the price he has to pay to be reunited with them is that he kills two other strangers. Men, who, like him, have had their families taken hostage. But are they really strangers? They do not know it, but they have been chosen because of an ancient barbaric ritual. The outcome for the losers' families is devastating.
There are three stories in parallel: a)Robert's story to save his family, with the help of his friend Will and his faithful dog, Nugget. b) His wife and son's brave battle for freedom. c) The events of a distant past in a creepy small Oregon town, the malevolent spirit of a criminal dead long ago, bent on revenge, an old man burned by the town vigilantes, a mysterious glacier, a hidden treasure of gold and an unwanted legacy, all events related.

If you do not believe in the spirit world, malevolent beings and shamans, then the plot may seem far fetched and this is may not be the book for you.
If, on the other hand, you think everything is possible, then dip into Red Mountain. It will leave you breathless and on edge, even after you have turned the last page.
One last thing: The book does not exactly finish on a cliff hanger but you get the feeling there is more to come. If there is a continuation, all the better for me , I shall be waiting impatiently.

An absolutely fantastic read. Much to my husband's dismay I really didn't want to put this book down. From the first page to the last page was an excellent read and would love to read more books like these. A definite must for your library!!
