Deliverance meets Heart of Darkness for the Generation X reader. Imagine your job is to translate for a pair of arrogant technology whizzkids on business in South America. Imagine you are accompanying them on a jaunty boat trip up the river Amazon. Imagine that late one night some foreign bandits steal onto the boat and kill the crew. Imagine that you and your charges are kidnapped at gun point. Would you give your life for theirs in the name of survival? Crossman is faced with just this dilemma. A seemingly straightforward trek through the jungle rapidly breaks down into mayhem and, after the kidnapping, nobody knows who to trust. There are five of them - the whizzkids, their two colleagues and Crossman - buried in a deep, dark pit with the ever-present threat of torture to keep them there. But an escape route is finally found and quickly five become three, stranded in a tiny boat on the enomous Amazon and facing new threats from the surrounding wildlife. But these are as nothing compared with the often violent redrawing of allegiances between the three survivors...Sunday Times Bestselling author Andrew Pyper has written a chilling, tense followup to his debut novel, Lost Girls, which confirms his mastery of thriller writing and explores new - and terrifying - territory against the dramatic backdrop of the Amazonian jungle.

Andrew Pyper

Andrew Pyper was born in a southern Ontario, Canada.

His books are usually referred to as thrillers, or "literary thrillers," or mysteries, or suspense, or horror.

Andrew's most recent novel, The Guardians, is about the shared secrets of long-time male friendship, the horrors of turning 40...and a haunted house. Before this is The Killing Circle, which is about what happens when a wannabe novelist steals another wannabe's story and the villain from that story is given life in the so-called "real world." It was selected as a Notable Crime Novel of the Year in the New York Times.

His novel Lost Girls, which was a New York Times Notable Book and Globe and Mail Best Book, won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel, and concerns a defence lawyer who believes he's being visited by the ghosts of two girls, the presumed victims of a double murder committed either by his client...

A number of Andrew's books are all in development for feature films. In addition, Andrew also has a law degree from the University of Toronto and a B.A. and M.A in English Literature from McGill University.

Andrew lives in Toronto.
