Ordeal is the story of a group of campers dealing with a life and death struggle against a group of escaped convicts. As an adventure/survival novel it is above average. What pushes it to even higher levels of interest is the discussions that the characters have about the state of liberalism versus conservativism. This book is not only a call to utilize the death penalty, but to deal out true justice to lawbreakers.

So good I finished it in one day. Literally was unable to put it down. I've said it before but I'll say it again, Mr. Johnstone's ability to create emotion from this reader is unlike any other author I have ever read. Mr. Johnstone You Rock!!!!
