What happens when you team up two people with nothing in common to get in a car and travel all over the country in an attempt to win one millions dollars? Oh, and to add fuel to the fire, the two people take an instant dislike to each other upon meeting. My, oh my, it's like being a fly on the wall in a train that's about to wreck! Will they kill each other before the end of the game? Or will all that dislike turn into a huge case of Like?
The "train wreck" begins when Tony Bryce finds himself unable to participate in a geocaching expedition and elects his brother, Andy, to take his place. Andy's partner is Liesel Wolf, a neighbor of the organizer of the event. Geocaching is a techie version of a treasure hunt using GPS coordinates to find clues until a winner emerges. The winners of the geocaching will donate the money to the charity of their choice. Liesel is desperate to win, so that the money can be donated to the Interstitial Cystitus Foundation.
Andy is a US Marshall, who's taking a vacation to participate in the game. Leisel refuses to open up to Andy, until they have been on the road for several days. The duo has successfully navigated and found the first two clues. However, their luck runs out when the two end up hiking up a steep trail that gets smaller and smaller. Using GPS, they search and finally find the cache, which leads them to a cave near the trail. When they enter the cave, not only do they discover the coordinates for the next cache, but the body of a man who has been shot in the head. Leaving the cave and heading back to the car, Andy and Liesel are chased by three men who look like mobsters. Andy finally drags the truth from Liesel. Her ex-husband is William Wolf, the son of a known mobster and a violent sociopath. After stopping at a local police station, Liesel gives Andy the slip, planning to escape to Montreal.
Will Andy get to the airport in time to stop Liesel's escape? Will William and his henchmen locate Liesel before Andy does? Why are Andy and Liesel being chased?
Ms. Cantrell's writing keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting impatiently for the next twist in the novel. She also has moments of humor, as when Liesel is at the airport waiting for her flight to depart and goes to the gift shop to buy her favorite author's new book. Any guesses as to who that author is? You got it—Elaine Cantrell! Kudos for a great book and I'm looking forward to her next installment.
