A special thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Gregg Hurwitz’s DON’T LOOK BACK is an action packed thriller on a journey with Eve, through the jungles and mountains in southern Mexico.
Eve was to go on an anniversary trip with husband, until Rick found a younger woman, so Eve decides the getaway trip to this lodge was just what she needs. However, at the lodge, she stumbles upon a lost digital camera while on a jungle trek and learns later it belongs to Theresa, a woman which is missing.
In addition, Eve sees a mysterious man near a hut in the jungle and starts the scare of her life. A terrorist, possibly, or does this man have anything to do with the missing woman? When she finds more photos in the camera of this same man among other things, she begins to wonder what gives. The tour group is trapped in the jungle with a predator, with one obstacle after another as this group fights for survival and Eve is driven to return alive to her son.
What should have been the trip of a lifetime and excitement, turns into a deadly fight for survival, and one that will change her life forever.
The novel kept me on the edge the entire book, as adrenaline runs high, recalling all the nights I was stuck out alone on a hiking trail or an eight hour biking trek caught in the woods in the middle of rain and thunderstorms. The same trail which later several women were raped and killed.
Wow, would I love to be caught out in the jungle with the hot and good looking author! A gripping novel of survival and death full of suspense, grabbing you from beginning to end!
