The Adventure of a Lifetime
Becomes an Unimaginable Nightmare.
A thrilling new novel from the Every Man series!
John Majors and three friends–Mike, Hollis, and Dave–go to Thailand for the eco-adventure of a lifetime rafting on the Pai River. But they find more than they bargained for.
From the fleshpot temptations of Bangkok to the beautiful and terrifying environs of Northern Thailand’s vast wilderness areas, they find themselves tested at every turn. When separatist terrorists attempt to kidnap them in the wilderness, the four men are stranded deep in the jungle, pursued by gunmen toting AK-47s, and finally trapped in a cave with nowhere left to turn. If they hope to escape, they must face their deepest fears and put their lives–and their souls–on the line. Their struggle to survive, escape, and experience God’s grace through it all forms a thrilling tale of courage and endurance.
Fred Stoeker–one of the men behind the phenomenal Every Man series–and best-selling novelist D. S. Smith join forces to bring you a compelling novel that combines the action and suspense of a thriller with real-life faith and insight for God’s men.

Scared. The word didn’t even begin to describe how
I was feeling. Words like frightened, terrified, and sheer panic came closer. Yet, somehow, I tried
to catch my breath and stay silent at the same time as my heart raced and every cell in my body told me to run. Beside me, my best friend, Mike, crouched next to the tree I was hiding behind, peering back into the darkness.
The black Thailand jungle pushed in on all sides. Earlier in
the day, the jungle had looked exciting to me, full of promise,
mystery, and things to explore. Now, at just a little after midnight,
it had become a humid, terror-filled nightmare.
My two other rafting buddies, Hollis and Dave, were hiding

vague shapes in the faint moonlight, and I couldn’t hear them

prayer. Dear Lord, please don’t let me die. Not now. Not here.
The men who had been our guides, and who now wanted
to kill us, crashed through the brush. It sounded to me like
they were very close behind us. The noise they made seemed
fantastically loud, like they were giant horror movie monsters.
My mouth was completely dry and I wanted to throw up
what was left of the fish dinner I’d eaten a few hours ago, back
when everything was still wonderful, still a happy adventure.
But I knew that if I did, they’d hear me. They’d find me. They’d

I took shallow breaths, trying to be
