In Les Becquets’ crisp, immersive novel, Amy Raye is a seasoned outdoorswoman who gets lost in the cold Colorado wilderness during an elk hunt. As she fights for survival, a local search-and-rescue worker named Prudence tries to find her—even if, she grimly realizes, she might just be looking for a body to give Amy Raye’s husband and children some peace of mind. We follow the weeks-long quest alternating between the women’s perspectives, and Les Becquets keeps suspense high by writing Amy Raye’s sections just a couple of days behind Pru’s search. She chronicles the harsh beauty of wintertime in the mountains while reminding us that people aren’t puzzles to be solved; they are fierce works in progress. B+
