Natalie and Doug are newly weds still learning about each other. Doug seems to have had a shady past along with his two best friends. Natalie is determined to make their marriage work and agrees to set out on an outdoors adventure in the Adirondacks for their honeymoon despite having limited camping experience.
Kurt is a man with issues living a lonely existence off the land ie until campers or hikers stumble across his outdoor home. When he meets the couple he is excited to have company and it wont be for the right reasons.
Shortly after setting out Doug loses their GPS and they discover a man’s body shot through the head. They realize they are probably lost with a murderer looking for them.
This seemed a complicated storyline combining a newly married couple with poor communication, an insane killer and some sort of illegal activity.
Kurt went to a lot of trouble keeping people away from his ‘home’ when not many came through his woods. He craved company for more than just company’s sake.
Natalie and her husband were an odd couple. She seemed to walk on eggshells around Doug in an almost desperate way and I guess her past had a lot to do with that behavior. Doug appeared distracted at times and keeping some sort of secret from his bride.
I had my suspicions about Doug’s past and found out I was not far from the truth.
Be prepared for some cruel acts as you read this outdoors mystery thriller.
