When fourteen-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a brutal murder, he's plunged into a new life, issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens. The plan is to get Jace off the grid while police find the two killers. The result is the start of a nightmare.
The killers, known as the Blackwell Brothers, are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him. Now all that remains between them and the boy are Ethan and Allison Serbin, who run the wilderness survival program; Hannah Faber, who occupies a lonely fire lookout tower; and endless miles of desolate Montana mountains.
The clock is ticking, the mountains are burning, and those who wish Jace Wilson dead are no longer far behind.

This book gripped me from the beginning of the story and didn't let me go. The villains in this story are some serious villains! And the beautiful but isolated Montana setting felt very realistic to me, I could picture myself there with the characters. Both the main characters and the side characters assed so much depth to the story. The plot twist at the end had my jaw on the ground!
