Synopsis : At a young age in the Maine woods, Diana Jackman learned to move freely in the wilderness, to sense a world invisible to most. A natural tracker from
a long line of shamans, healers, and hunters--an estranged wife and mother--she has returned to the woods to find again a place of magic...and death.
Eight hunters have gathered on an isolated estate in Bristish Columbia to track record book whitetail dear. But someone else is watching the hunting party--an insane and violent force of nature, hiding in the blinding whiteness of the Canadian winter. And now the hunters themselves have become the game.
For the first time in her life, Diana Jackman will know what it is to be prey.
To survive she will have to rely on her father's teachings, and set out alone to hunt the hunter.
Critique: Native American Diana Jackman learned to track deer as a child from her shaman father. To shake off the depression of his recent suicide, Diana leads a group of rich hunters on a trip into British Columbia after whitetail deer--only to discover that someone is hunting the hunters. When two members of the group are killed and gutted, it's up to Diana to use her skills and her anger to track down a crafty, crazed murderer. Mark Sullivan's descriptions of the stark landscape and the details of the hunt add greatly to the book's growing terror. His past thrillers, The Fall Lineand Hard News, are available in paperback.
