Book Review: Terror On the Trail

Title: Terror on the Trail: A Hike Gone Wrong

Author: Rob Ward

Narrator: Nick Newell



Thousands of hikers traverse the Appalachian Trail. For most, it’s an enjoyable experience. A chance to reconnect with nature, meet interesting people, and get a great workout. For some, it can be a nightmare.

Multiple women have been raped, ravaged, and terrorized, along a 40-mile stretch, in the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Authorities are stumped. Even as they struggle to find the perpetrator, he strikes again. 

Eric Lance has a sickness. His heart desires power and control. His perverse appetites know no bounds. Can Rob Stone stop him from wrecking another life along the Appalachian Trail? He’s out of shape, has a bum knee, and is hiking farther than ever before. His faithful canine companion, Terrance, will have to help him out during a critical time. Finding the perpetrator and stopping him could cost both of them dearly. 

This harrowing thriller is a battle of good versus evil.

My Review

4/5 Stars

A twisted story about a hike on the Appalachian trail gone wrong.

Dark and compelling, this book was definitely right up my alley. I loved the way the author switched between the victim and perpetrator to really build up the suspense of the cat and mouse chase.

Narration was captivating.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
