Description

A spine-tingling debut about the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse in reverse as a teen struggles to retain hope—and her sanity—while on the run from a cunning and determined killer.

Ruth Carver has always competed like her life depends on it. Ambitious. Tough. Maybe even mean. It’s no wonder people call her Ruthless.

When she wakes up with a concussion in the bed of a moving pickup trick, she realizes she has been entered into a contest she can’t afford to lose.

At a remote, rotting cabin deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ruth’s blindfold comes off and she comes face-to-face with her captor. A man who believes his mission is to punish bad girls like Ruth. A man who has done this six times before.

The other girls were never heard from again, but Ruth won’t go down easy. She escapes into the wilderness, but her hunter is close at her heels. That’s when the real battle begins. That’s when Ruth must decide just how far she’ll go in order to survive.

Back home, they called her Ruthless. They had no idea just how right they were.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 22, 2015 – In Adams s thrilling, horror-tinged debut, 17-year-old Ruth Carver refuses to be a victim even after she is abducted by a disturbed man she names Wolfman, severely injured, and taken to a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ruth is told that no one is looking for her Wolfman intends to break Ruth psychologically and then kill her as he did six other redheads who he deemed needed to be punished. She narrowly escapes his grasp, but then is faced with surviving the wilderness as he hunts her down. When the tables turn, Ruth must determine the extent to which she will seek retribution. Readers will feel completely submerged in Ruth s first-person, present-tense narrative, which alternates with third-person chapters that provide glimpses into Ruth and Wolfman s pasts. Though Adams focuses primarily on Ruth s will to escape her captor within the present, it s clear that these past experiences have helped form her inner core of resilience. An intense and unsettling survival story. Ages 14 up.
