Publisher's Summary

Eve Hardaway, newly single mother of one, is on a trip she’s long dreamed of - a rafting and hiking tour through the jungles and mountains of Oaxaca, in southern Mexico. Eve wanders off the trail, to a house in the distance with a menacing man in the yard beyond it, throwing machetes at a human-shaped target. Disturbed by the sight, Eve moves quickly and quietly back to her group, taking care to avoid being seen. As she creeps along, she finds a broken digital camera, marked with the name Teresa Hamilton. Later that night, in a rarely used tourist cabin, she finds a discarded prescription bottle - also with the name Teresa Hamilton. From the camera’s memory card, Eve discovers Teresa Hamilton took a photo of that same menacing looking man in the woods. Teresa Hamilton has since disappeared.

Now the man in the woods is after whoever was snooping around his house. With a violent past and deadly mission, he will do anything to avoid being discovered. A major storm wipes out the roads and all communication with the outside world. Now the tour group is trapped in the jungle with a dangerous predator with a secret to protect. With her only resource her determination to live, Eve must fight a dangerous foe and survive against incredible odds - if she's to make it back home alive.

This book wasn't Hurwitz best work

2.5☆ rounded to 3 because his other novels are really worth checking out.

I am really glad this wasn't my first book I read of Hurwitz as I likely wouldn't have read another. That would mean I would have not read Orphan X or The Nowhere Man which are among a couple of my favorite books.

Don't look back, in my opinion, was drawn out and so far beyond realistic that I had a hard time finishing it. I give all fiction novels leeway when it comes to being realistic,  but I have a hard time believing that killing all these vacationers gathered in the same area wouldn't have drawn the attention of the authorities to his very location where he was hiding out. Everything that could go wrong did and then some! There were several times I just couldn't picture what was going on, most of these times being "action" scenes. Not sure if it was because I wasn't paying full attention to the book but even upon going back several times throughout the book there were parts I really couldn't picture and therefore didn't follow what happened. This book just wasn't my cup of tea, but it might be yours! However, do
check out Orphan X & The Nowhere Man!

The narration by Scott Brick although brief was very well done. However, I didn't care for Cassandra Campbell's narration.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
