If you enjoy gripping suspenseful thriller fiction, BACKWOODS RIPPER is for you.
Wow! This was an amazingly good read! It reminds me of Misery meets The Hills Have Eyes! The writing was excellent with very well described intricate details and emotions. There were a few times I was cringing in delicious horror with chills racing up my back, unable to tear myself away for a second! You get to really feel for the characters and the life or death struggle they go through. It's very interesting to see the transformation Paige goes through to defend herself, Hal and their unborn child. The story immediately gripped me and kept me in it's clutches all the way to the explosive climax that had me racing through the pages. Every time things seemed to calm down for a second, a new plot twist or macabre detail is thrown in, keeping me on my toes....and thankful I still have all 10! I'm still thinking about this book days later at random moments! This is an extremely good thriller that I would recommend to anybody who wants a good thrill!
