"Wicked River is partly a who-is-my-husband-really story, partly a horror-in-the-wilderness story, and partly a Manhattan-family drama, all rolled up in elegantly propulsive prose, and shot through with sinister suspense."?LEE CHILD, New York Times bestselling author

Newlyweds Nat and Doug expected a romantic adventure when they decided on a canoe trip for their honeymoon, but they're not alone in the woods.

Six million acres of Adirondack forest separate Natalie and Doug Larson from civilization. For the newlyweds, an isolated canoeing honeymoon seems ideal—a chance to start their lives together with an adventure. But just as Natalie and Doug begin to explore the dark interiors of their own hearts, and the deceit that has led to their love, it becomes clear that they are not alone in the woods.

Six million acres makes it easy for the wicked to hide. And even easier for someone to go missing for good.

As they struggle with the worst the wilderness has to offer, a man watches them, wielding the forest like a weapon to get exactly what he wants. And once they are near his domain, he will do everything in his power to make sure that they never escape the of terror in the woods.

Wicked River is a slow-burn psychological thriller—a book full of sinister secrets, deceit, and terror—a chilling addition to the genre.
