    On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote mining town will disappear, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins, and not a single bone will be found - not even the gold that was rumored to have been the pride of this town. One hundred and thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a leading history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so they can learn what happened.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is really pretty good. Blake Crouch is no Dennis LaHane, or for that matter a Richard Kadre or Jack Kilborn, but the book is one of his better efforts. A good, light read that moves well and is good fun.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have WhisperSync fortunately. The narrator is very poor. He speaks in a monotone, virtually without inflection. He is unable to give character to voices. In fact, this is one of the two worst narrations I have heard on an audiobook this side of Libravox. The good thing is that I can read the text instead, using the narration only when it is inconvenient to read. This is ideal in a car. You can hear the story but your attention is never off the road.
