Eric Beetner: There and Back

The Truth Must Not be Unearthed

It’s a team building exercise into the forest for 10 colleagues. Many don’t want to be there, but two promotions are available and they know this is a test.

Things go wrong immediately. When crossing over a fast moving river, a rope bridge entangles one of them and it’s into the rushing water. A rescue attempt by one of the guides goes badly wrong. With no supplies, or shelter, and disparate personalities, there will be trouble.

I don’t need to tell you anything else. Eric Beetner has written a stellar suspense story that brings us back and forth – from the forest to the city. It takes great skill to do that so effortlessly that it’s a smooth and natural transition, and Beetner has that skill mastered. There and Back is highly recommended.

  1. Team building efforts can have really disastrous consequences, June. This sounds suspenseful, and it reminds of me of Jane Harper’s Force of Nature, which also has a team-building sort of retreat as its context. If you haven’t read it, You may enjoy it.
