Cover Your Tracks: A novel
Margo is eight months pregnant and traveling by train from Chicago to Spokane. She’s heading back to her childhood home, hoping to mend some relationships. As the train is passing through the Rockies, an unexpected blizzard hits with an avalanche descending upon the train. Former Army Ranger Nick, tells everyone they need to move to the last car. Only Margo goes with him and after he uncouples the car from the rest of the train, they watch as the train is swept down a ravine with no possible survivors. Now both are fighting to survive, but there might be more than just an avalanche that brought them together. Both have secrets and a desire for this child to live.
This was a great story about the will to survive and how far we will go to protect those we love. Both Margo and Nick were interesting characters and I enjoyed watching their story unfold. The parts in the wilderness escaping avalanches, fighting off coyotes, and trying to find shelter was intense. You can definitely label this as a thriller. Even the parts detailing Nick’s service in Afghanistan felt intense. I think, if you enjoy survival stories as well as psychological thrillers, then you will want to add this book to your reading list. It was hard to put down and I didn’t really want it to end. I think you’ll feel the same.
