Description

In this terrifying novel from the bestselling "master of the psychological thriller" and author of Baby Teeth (Entertainment Weekly), three friends set off on a hike into the Grand Canyon—only to discover it's not so easy to leave the world behind.

It was supposed to be the perfect week away . . .
Imogen and Beck, two sisters who couldn't be more different, have been friends with Tilda since high school. Once inseparable, over two decades the women have grown apart. But after Imogen survives a traumatic attack, Beck suggests they all reunite to hike deep into the Grand Canyon's backcountry. A week away, secluded in nature . . . surely it's just what they need.
But as the terrain grows tougher, tensions from their shared past bubble up. And when supplies begin to disappear, it becomes clear secrets aren't the only thing they're being stalked by. As friendship and survival collide with an unspeakable evil, Getaway becomes another riveting thriller from a growing master of suspense and a "literary horror writer on the rise" (BookPage).

        June 14, 2021
        Novelist Imogen Blum, one of the principals in this satisfying if initially slow-moving psychological thriller from Stage (Wonderland), is feeling even more introverted and isolated than usual after witnessing a deadly shooting at her Pittsburgh synagogue. To get Imogen “out of her hermit’s cave,” her older sister, Beck, a doctor living in Arizona, proposes a weeklong backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon, like the ones they enjoyed in their youth. Beck invites their childhood friend Tilda Jimenez, whose appearance on American Idol and subsequent stardom as an influencer have led to a six-figure book deal, to join them. Imogen and Tilda, who parted ways in college, haven’t really spoken in 20 years. Tensions and long-repressed resentments flare as they face the dangers of the rocky trails. But their personal differences fade when they realize they’re being stalked and their lives depend on their resourcefulness, courage, and unity. Stage thrillingly describes the perils and the beauty of nature while providing sage advice for hikers. This works better as a tale of friendship and personal growth than a survival adventure. Agent: Sarah Bedingfield, Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary.

      • content: Listeners join sisters Imogen and Beck, who, along with high school friend Tilda, decide to go on a bonding hike in the Grand Canyon. They are expecting a tough yet rewarding adventure; however, when they realize they are not alone, the experience becomes a lot tougher than they bargained for. Brittney Pressley narrates with aplomb. She creates three very different characters, in particular bringing out the toughness of Beck and the vulnerability of Imogen, as well as creating a believable troubled villain in Gale. Pressley's characterizations are especially strong during the many scenes of dialogue. Her skill helps listeners differentiate the women as they battle to save their lives and their friendship.

        May 21, 2021

        Stage's (Baby Teeth) newest novel is a narrative about two sisters who go on a hiking trip with an old friend from high school, only to find troubles from the past bubbling to the surface. Stage's characters speak to the tensions between women that can arise from the pressure to be constantly nice and docile and never stir up conflict--the burden to mask true feelings, jealousy, long-held resentments--and amps them up. It doesn't take long for the characters to question their sanity at every turn; soon they find themselves in an even more perilous situation, at the mercy of a dangerous force. It's difficult to maintain a sense of dread and tension with the way the setup unfolds in this scenario, but Stage carries it off well. VERDICT Fans of Sarah Langan, Tana French, or Scott Smith's The Ruins will devour this slow-burning psychological thrill ride.--Anita Siraki, Toronto

        Starred review from June 1, 2021
        Beck sets up a camping trip for herself, twin sister Imogen, and their shared best friend, Tilda, having decided it's time to address the Thing that has lived like a ghost among them for years. They set off into a remote part of the Grand Canyon, the sisters confident with years of trail experience, but Tilda not so much, upending the normal dynamic of their relationship, in which Tilda was the alpha. The Thing is overshadowed a few days out when their food stores are raided, and, soon after, their entire campsite is ransacked. They find themselves weaponless and vulnerable to an unknown predator. To say more would spoil an outstanding read. Suffice it to say that what follows is a stunning--at times sensitive, at times feral--exploration of just how deep and powerful the bonds of sisterhood and female friendship can be and how a squeaky mouse can become a roaring lion. By far, the winning character is the Grand Canyon itself. The women become "part of something elemental," drawing strength from its majesty when their fear runs as deep down as its river. This bildungsroman, mixed with a dark fairy tale and a touch of Kate DiCamillo's The Tale of Despereaux, makes Stage's third triumph, following Wonderland (2020) and Baby Teeth (2018). Recommend as women's fiction as well as psychological suspense.
