The best-selling author of The River returns with a heart-racing thriller about a young man escaping his own grief and an elite fishing lodge in Colorado hiding a plot of shocking menace.

'The poet laureate of the literary thriller: sinister and soulful'
Michael Koryta, author of Those Who Wish Me Dead

'Peter Heller's thrillers unfurl like campfire yarns'
New York Times

'An ever so subtly dystopian wilderness noir that speculates on the horrors of a post-pandemic society'
USA Today

'Riveting... A chilling reminder of the dangers that might lie in wait for us all'
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Kingfisher Lodge, nestled in a canyon on a mile and a half of the most pristine river water on the planet, offers boutique fishing at its finest and a respite for wealthy clients.
Now, it also promises a second chance for Jack, a return to normalcy after a young life filled with loss. When he is assigned to guide a well-known singer, his only job is to steer her to the best trout he can find.
But then a human scream pierces the night, and Jack soon realizes that this idyllic fishing lodge may be merely a cover for a far more sinister operation.
