Six million acres of Adirondack forest separate Natalie and Doug Larson from civilization. For the newlyweds, an isolated, backcountry honeymoon seems ideal: a chance to start their lives together with an adventure, on their own. But just as Natalie and Doug begin to explore the dark interiors of their own hearts, as well as the depths of their love for each other, it becomes clear that they are not alone in the woods.

Because six million acres makes it easy for the wicked to hide. And even easier for someone to go missing for good.

As they struggle with the worst the wilderness has to offer, a man watches them, wielding the forest like a weapon. And once they are near his domain, he will do everything in his power to make sure they never walk out again.


Wicked River will keep you up late at night—and haunt your dreams long after you’re finished.” 
—Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Still Missing and Those Girls

“Milchman is the Swiss Army knife of thriller writers—Wicked River is partly a who-is-my-husband-really story, partly a horror-in-the-wilderness story, and partly a Manhattan-family drama, all rolled up in elegantly propulsive prose, and shot through with sinister suspense. The real mystery about Milchman is why she isn’t already huge.” 
Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

“On a honeymoon gone terribly awry, two newlyweds battle for their lives in a powerful story of survival told by one of the richest and most riveting voices in today’s thriller fiction. From start to finish, Wicked River twists and tumbles and roars, carrying readers along for one hell of a thrill ride.” 
—William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of Ordinary Grace

Wicked River is an intriguing mix of hopes and fears. A tale fraught with danger, but loaded with place and character. It’s spicy, smart, and entertaining.” 
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of the Cotton Malone series
