Dan Lewinski is a PI hired to follow Connor Katz all the time and let his sister know if anything strange happens to him. It’s a boring job, because nothing ever happens, but it pays the bills. Nothing ever happens, that is, until they’re both on a small plane that crashes in the Alaskan wilderness.

This is an excellent book. I really, really enjoyed it very much. There’s drama, in the plane crash and the men’s attempts at survival. There’s discovery, as they learn about each other on a much deeper level than would have happened under less unusual circumstances. There’s guilt and worry and embarrassment for Connor about his past and how it has affected his life, and for Dan about the fact he was tailing Connor. And there’s sex as the men let their emotions lead them as they attempt to survive alone together. There are also a couple of excellent twists that happen later in the story that can’t be described (spoilers) but they were marvelous—well timed and well carried out. Mix all these ingredients together and they make a powerful, engaging, page-turner of a book.

This is a very polished story, with no annoying plot holes, inconsistencies, or grammar problems. This book is as close to perfect as anyone could wish, and a fulfilling read in every way. A most impressive, enjoyable, and worthwhile way to spend an evening. Well done indeed.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
