After a summer fighting wildfire, US Park Ranger Anna Pigeon sets off on a camping trip to the Iron Range in upstate Minnesota. With her are four women: Heath, Leah and their two teenage daughters. For Heath, who is paraplegic, it is the chance to test out a new, cutting edge line of outdoor equipment, designed by Leah to make the wilderness more accessible to disabled campers.
On their second night, Anna takes a canoe out on the Fox River but when she returns, she finds that a band of kidnappers, armed with rifles, pistols and knives, has taken the group hostage. With limited resources and no access to the outside world, it is up to Anna to track them across the treacherous landscape and rescue her friends before it is too late...

Bestseller Barr's gripping 18th Anna Pigeon novel (after 2012's The Rope) takes the National Park Service ranger on an autumn camping trip along the Fox River of the Iron Range in upstate Minnesota. Anna's first vacation since her honeymoon three years earlier doubles as a get-together with Heath Jarrod, a paraplegic; Heath's daughter, Elizabeth; Leah Hendricks, who designs outdoor gear; and Leah's daughter, Katie. For Leah, the trip also is a "shakedown cruise" to test a new line of equipment to make the outdoors accessible to the handicapped. On their second night, four armed men invade the campsite while Anna is on a solo canoe float. Barr touches again on her recurring theme, that man is the biggest threat in nature, as Anna works unseen to disarm the thugs and free her friends. Barr's gift for depicting breathtaking scenery elevates the story, as does Anna's complex, ever-evolving personality.
