Survival Games: A Novel
(Rating = 4 out of 5 Stars) …
It is the end of summer when two best-friend couples set out for a long weekend at their country home, a sheep farm, for a few days of hunting and relaxing. Dray and Portia, exuberant, playful, and wildly in love, have been friends with Bill and Clair since college. Despite a recent separation, Bill and Clair have fallen back in love and are more attached than ever. The four are loyally devoted to each other, bonded for life in friendship they wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. A weekend together seems like the perfect way to close out the summer.
But there are demons lurking in those woods, and the couples have no idea how much danger they are in. Waking early on Saturday morning, Bill and Dray leave their sleeping wives to go duck hunting. Back at the house, Clair and Portia lounge by the pool. When their sheep are picked up for slaughter, two violent local laborers walk into the seemingly peaceful setting. Within moments, Clair and Portia are abducted, leaving an empty house for their husbands to return to. In the terrifying hours that follow, Clair finds herself battling demons in her past in order to fight her brutal kidnapers, while Dray and Bill follow their trail, using real-life survival skills in the fatal hunt for their missing wives.
