The Wild Inside is set in the Alaskan wilderness where the Petrikoff family lives. The daughter, Tracy spends all of her time in the woods, tracking animals and running her sled dogs. She has always felt safe in the woods but she still follows her mother’s rules: Never Lose Sight of the House. Never Come Home with Dirty Hands. And, above all else, Never Make a Person Bleed.
One day she does meet a stranger in the woods who attacks her and knocks her unconscious. She doesn’t remember what exactly happened when she wakes up, but her knife is bloody. The next day a man appears in their yard with a knife wound to his gut.
Helping her father cope with her mother’s death and prepare for the approaching Iditarod, she doesn’t have time to think about what she may have done. Then another person appears out of nowhere, looking for a job. Tracy senses that he is hiding something, but she can’t warn her father without explaining about the attack—or why she’s kept it to herself.
Now, if you read any of this books synopsis or even the cover – you would never guess that Tracy herself has a strange secret, one that she only shared with her mother….one that I cannot decide if it is supernatural or medical. Everything else in the story leads you into a psychological thriller – then you throw THAT into it as well! Sorry guys, I can’t even explain it to you because I want you to have the same reaction I did while reading it!
If you like psychological thrillers, you HAVE to read this!
