Man in the Woods by Scott Spencer (Ecco)

The first two chapters of Scott Spencer’s book don’t seem to have much in common—we’re introduced to Will and then Paul—but by the fourth chapter, the two men meet, and with this cataclysmic event, their lives change forever. The author draws us in to a deliciously thrilling and provocative tale of guilt, faith, passion, and redemption. Is our main character a hero or a villain? Should we condemn or support him? Amid the page-turning suspense, Spencer’s exquisite writing is at the core of this excellent novel. Hmm… I envision many book clubs in this book’s future… –Hilary
