This is a pretty darn good first book from Sandy Harris. The premise is interesting, and fairly well executed. A little more time editing would be good, as there are spelling and grammar mistakes (very few, but noticeable). I liked it, and look forward to more from the author.
The sheriff’s office thinks Bateman, a model high school senior and son of a prominent citizen, brutally murdered his three companions on a south Alabama whitetail deer hunt. They don’t buy the tale he tells of a huge buck that somehow managed to kill all three of the armed men. They are a hair’s breath away from indicting him for murder when evidence begins to surface suggesting that something strange and seriously wrong happened out there in the woods. Could it be that John’s unbelievable story is actually true? John must risk his own life in the final showdown to prove his innocence beyond a doubt.
