I literally roared through this novella in a couple of quick sessions. It's a tightly-paced edge-of-your-seat thriller which does exactly what it needs to do and doesn't outstay its welcome. David and Natalie are returning from a party which neither of them wanted to go to and are embroiled in a cat-and-mouse chase with three drugged-up youngsters through the deserted streets of Gaffney. Characters are sharply defined. David is an everyman and its easy to map how we might react in his position and Natalie isn't simply a damsel in distress. The villains are more than one-dimensional. Where West succeeds is in making some of their decisions odd - and therefore making them human. I loved Jay, whose out-of-it manner makes the situation much more realistic. If there's a definition of a page-turner, then this novella is it.
