    A bickering urban couple on vacation in Nevada get stranded out in the middle of the desert. It seems almost inevitable they will perish (though, for a time, it's a toss-up whether the heat and lack of water will get them, or whether they will tear each other's throat out). But, just when the situation seems hopeless, a man appears, a desert hermit who calls himself Boots. Just when we think we've got a handle on what's going on—this looks like one of those stories in which someone is held captive by a loony loner—new characters appear, and we realize the danger doesn't come from Boots but from an altogether more terrifying source. This is a skillfully written, gripping thriller, well supported by the author's fine eye for setting and ear for dialogue. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
