Summary
When a day trip out of Las Vegas with his wife takes a turn for the worse, Jack is sure that he has the ability to get them home. Rescue comes in the form of a desert hermit, but hope fades as the couple come to realize he has no intention of letting them leave. A chance encounter with a kidnapped run-away and her crazed abductor leads them farther into the wilderness - and closer to the cold brutality that isolation brings. At the edge of sanity, Jack begins to learn that playing by another's rules may be the only way to survive
Summary
