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.

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
