action-packed crime thriller
She is a practicing psychologist well known for her lectures, seminars and ¿how to¿ books but she wants to reconnect with her teen-age son Scott. Her ex-husband has custody of their son but Sherry Carrigan O¿Toole thinks that a trip at the luxurious ski resort Sky Top Village will give them a chance to bond. One night when they were supposed to have dinner together, he skips out without telling her. He and a friend who owns a plane fly to Salt Lake City to see a rock concert but the plane crashes in bad weather and Scott is the only survivor. He¿s able to last in the wilderness for a few days thanks to survival skills he was taught and when he comes to a cottage inhabited by a middle aged man, he thinks his problems are over. He realizes they are just beginning when he realizes his roommate is a hitman who has a tendency to leave no witnesses to identify him. John Gilstrap has written another crime thriller starring a protagonist who is truly a hero. Even though he is a teenager, he has more daring and courage than most adults and he proves it many times over though a bit irresponsible. Scott¿s disappearance diffuses the war between his parents who finally reach a cease-fire after almost losing their son. SCOTT FREE is one action scene after another, as the pace never slows down for an instant. Harriet Klausner

I just finished Scott Free, and I loved it! It was very hard to put down once I started it. It hooks you from the beginning. My mom read it first (50s), then my 18 year old brother read it, then I took my turn (20s). It appeals to many different kinds of people and ages. It has humor, suspense, drama and horror. A very entertaining read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A real chiller Gilstrap's best yet.....
I am not a book reviewer, I am a paying customer and also an avid reader of crime thrillers. Some authors are "must buys" - Peter Robinson, James Patterson, John Grisham, Linda Fairstein, Harlan Coben to name but a few. I have now added John Gilstrap. His new book "Scott Free" is gripping from the first page. I thought Nathan's Run was superb but his is even better. Go for it .....Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
