I loved this book - in my opinion, his best so far. Fast-moving, interesting characters and some plot twists for added excitement. It's a fairly easy read - if you like an intellectual challenge, this isn't the book for you; but it keeps you guessing and as an entertaining, page-turning thriller, it's perfect.
We get straight into the action on the opening page and the first half of the book is all about Scott's wilderness survival after a nightmarish plane crash. I like the kind of book which has enough description that you can imagine being there yourself, but not so much that it slows down the action, and Gilstrap seems to hit it just right - I could picture everything and was completely caught up in it - so much so that I reckon I could now stand a chance against the elements if the same thing ever happened to me! [sorry - overactive imagination] The second half is more like a conventional thriller with guns, bluffs and escapes but still with a wintery, outdoors backdrop.
My only complaint is that it had a bit too much bad language for me; none of it out of character, but it's a personal thing - I just don't like swearing. Apart from that, my idea of perfect fiction.
