Publisher's Summary

After the breakup of her marriage, Evie takes the holiday of a lifetime: a few weeks of hiking, rafting and jungle adventure at an eco-lodge in Mexico.

But nothing is quite what it seems. There are secrets hidden that can't be allowed to leave their jungle hiding place.

If she is ever to see her son again, Evie will be forced to find reserves of strength, courage, and ingenuity she never dreamt existed.

Holiday hell at its worst

The story gets you in from the opening sentences. I loved it and could not remove the headphones. I am now a true fan of Gregg Hurwitz and will look to read many of his other works.

Good but not his best

I love this writers work and have waited with baited breath for his latest release. Sadly it was not his best book. Greg Hurwitz writes for TV and I think this would have made an excellent drama. but as a book, it lost some of the impact that could have been very effective visually. The narration was good but it still seemed to go on too long as a written piece. I will still wait eagerly for Greg Hurwitz next book!

Seemed to go on forever

Didn't really enjoy this book, it started ok but I struggled with the story after a while. I've enjoyed other books by this author but unfortunately this wasn't one of them.

cannot understand high review ratings

I checked out the reviews on Amazon before ordering,and as I have previously enjoyed books by this author took the plunge.
I am sorely disappointed, the story could have been fine, a little over the top, but ok! However, the element of Muslim terrorism somehow managed to jump into the story for no apparent reason. Frankly I don't know whether I will be able to finish this book, it is way too daft and over the top, and frankly unpleasant!

Whew!

Starts slowly, but don’t worry, keep reading. It winds and winds the tension until you think you yourself might break. I am not too sure what the Mexican tourist board might make of it, but the beauty of Mexico shines through. I was slow to catch on to Eve’s name, but got there in the end. If you want a story that keeps you turning the page and feeling breathless, this is the goods.

Not his best

In my opinion not one of his best books. it seemed a little far fetched in some parts and every possible catastrophe befell this group and the lead character, trials of a Mexican jungle, Islamic terrorist, man eating ants, crocodiles, flesh burning plants, tropical storms, collapsed bridges and no communications! Who would go to the jungle on holiday in the tropical storm season?

Thank god it’s over!

Boring, repetive, never ending, quite frankly. CRAP!

I’m a big fan of Greg Hurwitz’s work, this was awful though.

Don’t Look Back

Not what I was expecting - better! Definitely would recommend. Made me so glad I was warm, safe and in my own home.

Can't put down

It's ages since I quite literally couldn't put a book down. It starts a bit slow, but stick with it for an amazing second half. Best book I've "read" in ages.
