It was supposed to be just an ordinary camping trip, two old friends hiking through the woods of northern California.  But this self-enforced isolation exposes long-hidden rivalries and resentments between the men.  The deeper they get into the wilderness, far from civilization, the greater the tension becomes–until it erupts into a terrifying life-or-death battle for survival.  Two men enter the woods, but only one will emerge alive . . . .

Praise for Hunted Past Reason

Praise for Hunted Past Reason:

Makes the most agonizing scenes from Deliverance seem genteel by comparison . . . Matheson is a master at conveying the escalating mental anguish of the protagonist . . . and at capturing the violent, psychotic and perversely ingenious mind of his foe.”
--The Wall Street Journal
 
“Matheson’s masterpiece . . . First-rate suspense.”
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The Hemingway of horror."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Recommended highly, both for Matheson’s large and devoted following and for all readers of suspense stories.”
--Booklist

"Impossible to stop reading, and in many ways is the strongest novel of Matheson’s career.”
--Fangoria
