Dense woodland - twisting paths - it's easy to lose your way in the wilderness...The rugged Rocky Mountains are a place some go to hide inside, some to escape into and others to hunt in. Dr Matt Seleckis has never been one for the woods: he remembers his childhood vacations there with his mother and father - and the looming threat of an unexplained death ...Now Matt lives in the mountains' shadow, in Utah with his wife and young son. Yet the prospect of a hunting trip alone with his father is bringing back dark, unwelcome memories - of a certain vacation, of his beloved parents. And of a hushed-up tragedy that he's sure concerns him. But with the arrival of these unsettling memories comes the creeping realisation that in nature, death for the unwary lies around every corner. And in the woods, it's easy to take a wrong turn.
