This book was pretty good. I can admit that I didn't love this book in a way that it would be worth reading again. I didn't like how there was basically only two characters in the whole story while everyone else were just side characters. Ruth was smart, I'll give it that, but the cat and mouse idea just dies out pretty quick. Just saying, if you want to settle down with a thriller that is pretty basic go right a head read what you love.

Ruth is kidnapped and is determined to survive. She is strong, smart, and brave. The book is written in short chapters that make it a quick, scary read.

Are you tired of books where the heroine is captured by a dragon/giant/psycho killer, and has nothing to do except wait endlessly for the prince/hero/boyfriend to rescue her? Then “Ruthless” is the book for you. Ruth, a horse riding champion whose nickname is “Ruthless” (because of her attitude) is indeed kidnapped by a psycho killer who thinks it is his duty to “punish” her. When she sees a heap of girls’ underwear from victims who he has previously “punished”, Riuth knows she has to escape—and fast. She is alone and naked in the middle of the wilderness, with only her wits, stubbornness, and attitude to survive. Adams' writing style echos Stephen King’s early books (though I’m sure King would have had a dream sequence showing all the previous victims). This is one thriller will grab you and won’t let you go.
