Peter Ash figured the best way to escape the claustrophobia that’s his legacy from the war is to backpack through the California redwoods. But that led to escaping up a tree beyond the reach of a bear, and that led to discovering a series of climbing ropes and a woman who was running from her would-be kidnappers by hiding in the crowns of the redwoods. June is hardly your typical damsel in distress, and that’s good, because this situation is going to require every resource both of them have to make it out alive.
Nick Petrie takes a look at some of the damage inflicted by a tour of duty, and you get to see a little bit of how Ash copes, or doesn’t, with the aftermath and what that means for his life. This was beautifully plotted and paced, and the reader was pleased to find out there was two more novels in the series. If you like action, adrenaline, and a lot of fast thinking this book may be for you.
