Cork O’Connor sets off into the Minnesota wilderness in search of a missing woman named Shiloh.
With the approach of winter, the woman has little chance of survival.
Cork is joined by two FBI agents, a Native American man and his son (the son accompanied his uncle to visit the missing woman earlier in the season) and the missing woman’s father.
But they aren’t the only ones looking for Shiloh.
Someone else is tracking the young woman. Members of Cork’s group are picked off one-by-one. Everyone is under suspicion. No one is safe.
The atmosphere in this book is very strong. We get to feel the wilderness where personal skills and personality traits can make the difference between life and death. We get to know each member of the group. We know their bravery and their weak points and what they're made of.
Native American folklore and legend are mixed in, especially during the nights. I really enjoyed these aspects of the story.
The reader also follows the story of Shiloh, who originally asked to be taken into the wilderness so that she could go back to song-writing. She is attacked and manages to escape by canoe but she cannot find her way out of the network of lakes and rivers. Someone is pursuing her and she knows, whoever it is, they want her dead.
An excellent read. 5/5.
