A terrific thriller and sort of mystery, this book has nasty villains and amazingly resilient heroines. Like zombies in a horror film these women refuse to die.

Heath gazed into the fire, marveling at the concept of camping out, canoeing a river, building a fire, and eating and sleeping in the wilderness. This was a fine and wonderful thing. Boy Scouts did it, park rangers and hunters and hikers did it, photographers and dishwashers and presidents did it. And now cripples did it, she thought. Hooray for our side. pg 7
