Review: One Step Too Far
By Lisa Gardner

Review: One Step Too Far

Missing-person finder Frankie Elkin returns, roving into the treacherous Wyoming wilderness in search of a man who vanished without a trace.

We first met Frankie Elkin in BEFORE SHE DISAPPEARED—a woman who’s made it her mission to find those the world has forgotten. In this latest from Lisa Gardner, Frankie takes on the case of a man who disappeared just before his wedding and during a raucous night in the woods with his best friends.

“Five guys went into the woods. One has never been seen again. And the other four… they are not who they used to be either.”

Despite multiple search parties over the years, no one has found traces of expert hiker Timothy O’Day. In a last-ditch effort by his father and friends, they gather a search party to comb a dangerous canyon. Frankie manages to join the team and quickly senses many of them are lying about why they’re there, about what really happened that night.

Worse yet, someone is sabotaging their efforts.

Tension ratchets as their situation worsens, seeding doubt and dissent among the group. Frankie has the sinking feeling not all eight of them will return—if any.

In the spirit of AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, Gardner immerses us in a story that is utterly chilling, a visceral descent into the unforgiving darkness of nature and people. The pace is propulsive—an unrelenting edge-of-your-seat thriller I couldn’t devour fast enough. Gardner masterfully plots, unraveling secrets and scenes sure to make you gasp, accelerating to a surprising and terrifying culmination.

A brilliant one-sitting, nail-biting binge you don’t want to miss.
