What starts out as a long overdue camping trip for Keith Mitchell and his two sons turns into one of terror and survival. Mitchell, who wants to spend a week with his two sons before his estranged wife takes them to another state, takes them on a camping trip the kind that Mitchell used to go on when he was a child. However, the trip quickly turns deadly as Mitchell battles the forces of nature during a torrential thunderstorm and puts him on a collision course with Nicky Jones, who won't let anyone stand in his way, as he flees across the country with law enforcement on his tail.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Miller has spent nearly three decades flitting around Asia as a university lecturer and writer, including a six-year stint as a feature writer for The Korea Times, South Korea's oldest English-language newspaper. Originally from LaSalle, Illinois, he relocated to South Korea in 1990 where he nurtured a love for spicy Korean food, Buddhist temples, and East Asian History. His work has appeared in numerous journals and magazines, including A-Minor Magazine, Boston Literary Magazine, Eunoia Review, Full of Crow, Grey Sparrow Journal, Short, Fast, and Deadly, Thunderclap and the Toasted Cheese Literary Journal. He is the author of six books including War Remains a Korean War Novel, Ice Cream Headache, and Waking Up in the Land of the Morning Calm. He divides his time between South Korea and Laos, where his wife Aon, and three sons Bia, Jeremy Aaron, and Joseph reside.

Review:

"Jeffrey Miller has done it again with this nail biter about characters colliding with Fate. A master craftsman at the complexities of human dynamics, he introduces us to the major players and then sends them out into the world to start a life, take a chance, lend a hand, or kill; and breathlessly we tag along with Keith Mitchell as he takes his sons on a camping trip they won't soon forget. If you're looking for a fast-paced gripping ride, this is it!"
-- Boston Literary Magazine

"In this uniquely American story, Jeffrey Miller explores the struggles of divorce, foster care, abuse, and life in general as he expertly weaves together the stories of two very different characters. With a backdrop rich in history and character, Miller draws the reader into a world where even the villain earns our sympathy."
-- Nathaniel Tower, author of Nagging Wives, Foolish Husbands and A Reason to Kill

"Miller takes us on a journey--a human journey, a father's journey. We feel the good and the bad as Keith Mitchell tries his best to be the father his sons need. Life is hard enough for Mitchell and his sons as they cope with divorce and estrangement, but when he crosses paths with a broken man with no love in his heart, and a natural disaster, things get even trickier."
-- David J. Steele, author of Sexton Chronicles, and Blackout: A Look Inside Wernickes
