  • SUMMARY: From Booklist "When her friend Heath (Hard Truth, 2005), a paraplegic, agrees to road test a wheelchair poised to revolutionize the sports-gear market, park-ranger Anna Pigeon guides Heath; her daughter, Elizabeth; the chair’s designer, Leah; and Leah’s daughter on a trek in Minnesota’s Iron Mountains. It’s all fresh air and fireside chats until four armed men suddenly appear and abduct the hikers. Anna returns from a canoe jaunt to discover her friends held at gunpoint and stays hidden so that she can track them, seizing every opportunity to help her friends. Meanwhile, Heath struggles to survive the off-trail hike and protect the girls. With no cellular reception, Anna’s cunning strikes are the only hope for rescue, and she ferociously, sometimes savagely, harnesses the rules of the wild to even the odds."

    MY THOUGHTS: It should have been called a "Heath Novel".  Anna seemed to be the "secondary character" to the storyline line.  The story seemed to drag on to me. I wondered if Miss Barr is planning on coming up with a new series, poor Anna, seems to have lost her way.  As always Barabara Rosenblat does a superb job narrating the book.
