Sherry Carrigan O'Toole can't seem to make the prescriptions she offers in her bestselling self-help books apply to her own life. Six years after her marriage to Brandon disintegrated and he won custody of their son, Scott, there's no room in their lives for her. Hoping to win back the teenager's heart, Sherry arranges a week's skiing at the plush SkyTop Village resort. But Scott has other plans. Determined to evade his mother's clutches, he jumps at the chance to join a foolhardy adventure to fly a Cessna through a nighttime storm to Salt Lake City for a Metallica concert. After the plane crashes, Scott is lost and alone in the frozen wilderness, miles from anywhere people would search for him. As Brandon and Sherry revisit the old battles that tore them apart, they have to fight a bureaucracy that wants to abandon the search even as their son struggles to survive impossible odds. Barely alive, Scott finally finds a cabin for shelter. He thinks his troubles are over. When he discovers the truth about the man who lives there, however, it's clear that his terror has barely begun.

Praise for this book

"If ever there was a one-sitting read, SCOTT FREE is it. Author Gilstrap has done it again: Not only has he dished up a gut-grabbing, pure-adrenaline rush of a thriller, but he's snagged our hearts too with a gripping story of a father-son relationship that's every bit as compelling as the breathtaking scenes and the wry, perceptive observations about small-town life." - Jeffery Deaver
