Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta

This is my second Koryta book, and I now know see why Stephen King and Lee Child are such fans.

The bad guys are two of the best/worst I can recall in fiction.

The book never lags.  And much of the action happens in mountains, the hiker in me was thrilled.

Many feel this is his best book, so far.

When fourteen-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a brutal murder, he’s plunged into a new life, issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens.

The killers, known as the Blackwell Brothers, are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him. Now all that remains between them and the boy are Ethan and Allison Serbin, who run the wilderness survival program; Hannah Faber, who occupies a lonely fire lookout tower; and endless miles of desolate Montana mountains.

Angelina Jolie will star in the movie.
