Description

"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

Six million acres of Adirondack forest separate Natalie and Doug Larson from civilization. For the newlyweds, an isolated backcountry 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, as well as the depths of their love for each other, it becomes clear that they are not alone in the woods.

Because 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. He wants something from them more terrifying than death. And once they are near his domain, he will do everything in his power to make sure they never walk out again.

Reviews

"riveting....A hybrid between John Fowles's classic The Collector and Erica Ferencik's The River at Night, this novel will appeal to fans of psychological suspense as well as those who enjoy trips to the backcountry." - Library Journal
"Suspense oozes like blood from a wound on every page of Jenny Milchman's Wicked River. As scary and tense a book as I've read this year." - John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of the Dismas Hardy series
"From time to time, I come across an action manuscript that shares my high regard for the [action] genre and the intensity it can achieve. One such book is Jenny Milchman's Wicked River, which I urge you to experience. It thoroughly gripped me, not only because of the excitement it creates and the inventiveness with which it does so, but also because of the subtext about a honeymoon in which the various stages of a marriage are condensed in a wilderness that's both physical and psychological. Wicked River is a wild ride." - David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of First Blood
"Jenny Milchman's characters jump off the page...Wicked River is compulsive reading - I kept holding my breath and turning the pages faster and faster. It's a book that should cement Jenny's place as a must read thriller writer for fans hungry for domestic suspense in the style of Gillian Flynn." - MJ Rose, New York Times bestselling author
"Chock full of suspense and danger, Wicked River by Jenny Milchman takes you on the journey of a lifetime, canoeing fast-moving rivers and hiking through tangled forests where humans have seldom trod. This is the story of Natalie and Doug's honeymoon; they wanted natural beauty and adventure. They get both, in abundance. You'll be glad you joined them. Wicked River is wicked thrilling!" - Gayle Lynds, bestselling author of Masquerade and The Book of Spies
"Deliverance, meet Into the Wild. Jenny Milchman knows how to construct a tautly wound, raw-boned thriller that will keep you up like the howl of wolves outside your tent." - Andrew Gross, international bestselling author of The Blue Zone and The Dark Tide
"A story about passion and betrayal on the high stakes stage, Wicked River is intensely gripping and perfectly paced-a real standout that pushes the domestic thriller category to its very edge. With her usual mastery of setting and character, Jenny Milchman has outdone herself." - Carla Buckley, internationally bestselling author of The Good Goodbye
"A tense exploration of survival and psychological manipulation with a raw, sharply drawn setting sure to please
fans of wilderness thrillers like those by Nevada Barr and C. J. Box." - Booklist
