Jill siempre ha sido buena con los caballos, pero no con la gente.

Jill tiene un trabajo de verano brutal en un rancho en las montañas, guiando a vaqueros aficionados en paseos a caballo por el campo. Durante una excursión con un guapo desconocido, Jill se encuentra de pronto en una lucha de vida o muerte, sin nadie que pueda ayudarla.

Jill took a job which sounded perfect for the summer, guiding tourists on trail rides in the beautiful mountains. She didn't realize that the money was terrible, the hours long and the coworkers insufferable. After a blow-up with her boss, she takes a single man into the mountains for a ride, only to finds that he is a dangerous killer. When Jill fights back and manages to escape, she is in a desperate race to survive and make it to safety.

Alex Van Tol grew up reading a wide range of books, from Enid Blyton to Stephen King. She taught middle school for eight years, then made the switch to writing for a living. She has published numerous titles with Orca. Alex lives in Victoria, British Columbia, with her family. For more information, visit www.alexvantol.com.

"A Spanish language novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end!" - Tri-State YA Book Review Committee

"An exciting tale...The story line and the characters are well-developed. I think it would be valuable for Spanish speaking readers and for upper level Spanish students in the high school." - Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
