Hunted Past Reason
It's supposed to be an ordinary camping trip, two old friends hiking through the wilderness toward a remote cabin in the woods of northern California. But the enforced isolation of the hike soon exposes long-hidden rivalries and resentments between the two men. The deeper they get into the primeval wilderness, and the further from civilisation, the greater the tension between them becomes - until the simmering hostility erupts into a life or death struggle for survival.

"Without Richard Matheson, I wouldn't be around."--Stephen King "Suspense master Matheson's masterpiece . . . First-rate suspense."--"Kirkus Reviews "(starred review) "Matheson's new novel shows him still the Hemingway of horror, a writer whose honed prose and primal themes articulate universal fears and dreads."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) ""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--his fears, anxieties, self-castigations, and vain hopes--and at capturing the violent, psychotic, and perversely ingenious mind of his foe."--"The Wall Street Journal"
