One of Entertainment Weekly's "10 Great Summer Thrillers" of 2015


In the winter of 1966, Katherine Reid moves to an isolated cabin deep in Georgia's Appalachian Mountains. There, with little more than a sleeping bag, a tin plate, and a loaded gun, she plans to spend her time in peaceful solitude. Gradually she realizes she is not alone there. Someone else lives in the forest, and observes her every move.

Twenty-year-old Danny, trained as a reconnaisance sniper in Vietnam, lives not far from Katherine's cabin, in a once-grand mansion he has dubbed "Gatsby's house." Haunted by war and enclosed by walls of moldering books, he becomes fixated on Katherine. When these two souls collide, the passion that ignites between them quickly becomes all-consuming--and increasingly dangerous.
