A hunting trip turns into a manhunt in this chilling predator-versus-prey thriller from an Edgar Award–winning author.
Four guys from the suburbs are about to set out on a hunting trip. Wes is an architectural draftsman with a secret. Leo has a high-level advertising job, but is miserable with ulcers. Milt sells pharmaceuticals but is disdained by his wife—who happens to be the object of passionate desire for Lamar, who works in insurance.
But one of these men is also a killer—and not only of deer. When an LAPD detective is taken out with a sniper rifle, what started out as a friendly outing suddenly turns very dark . . .
“A superlative storyteller.” —Publishers Weekly
