We all have the killer instinct...Dr Matt Seleckis is looking forward to a relaxing summer in Utah with his wife and young son. Until a seemingly random event catapults him back 26 years to a childhood vacation in the Rocky Mountains - and a shocking and mysterious death. As Matt's fragmented childhood memories slowly unravel, the relationships in his adult life also begin to shift. His loved and revered father, his dead mother, his adored wife...with the past intruding on the present, Matt begins to question everything. Were his father's hunting trips as innocent as his son recalls? Was Matt's mother really the woman he thought she was? What terrible secrets lay in the past? And how close to home are they buried? When Fall comes, a confused and suspicious Matt accepts his father's invitation to join him on a hunting trip to the snowy mountain wilderness called the Mouth of Nowhere. But neither of them is prepared for what their expedition will become: a terrifying journey into the heart of deadly betrayal.

Well written and captivating from the start, this story of likeable and authentic characters gradually builds a sense of creeping menace which is only broken on the last page.
I warmed to Matt and was amused by Jarvis and Troy, it was clever of Ms. Rigbey to inject some humour into the story, which worked.
Quite long and plodding in places, it nevertheless always had my attention as the mystery of past events waited to be revealed...
Would recommend this book and will be seeking out her others.
What I wonder is how a person can conceive such a story, know details of hospitals, medical procedures and the hunting fraternity in such depth!
I will be looking for Elizabeth Rigbey's other books in the library today.

It's a big book, which can be overwhelming but I found myself up late many nights, unable to put it down.
The book opens with a hit and run, you don't know the driver or the person who's hit. Then the books begins to weave a tale around a doctor called Matt and his wife and son, aging father and mysterious memories of his childhood summers. The hit and run takes a back seat to the current story when a moral dilemma sees the Matt make a difficult decision which thereafter kicks in a mysterious red car which follows him everywhere and has him question his sanity. The car brings back flashes of a mystery from his past involving his parents and family friends.
I really enjoyed this, there were plenty of twists and turns through the whole story. Well written, great characters, a lot of intrigue.
