Man In the Woods by Scott Spencer

book jacket
This is about a craftsman carpenter living in upstate New York.  His life is going very well and he is in a good relationship with a perfect partner.  He has a chance encounter with a stranger and commits a horrible crime for the right reason.  The rest of the book is his trying to live with the terrible guilt of what he has done and how his guilt impacts his current life.  This book is a page turner.

  1. Wow, this book sounds a lot like Ray Bradbury's Death is a Lonely Business. An equally good read about a man who meets Death one night on a train and how that changes his life.

  2. I heard about Death Is a Lonely Business but haven't read it. I think it was published about ten years ago or so. Thanks for the suggestion! I love hearing about books that aren't recently published.
