‘The Foreigner’ By Erick Mertz

Thank you for this, I appreciate it.
Two brothers, living in perfect harmony from childhood. One night while out hunting the two men are mysteriously separated, leading to a long, tragic estrangement. 
Reunited in the same place under eerily similar circumstances fourteen years later, the younger discovers that his brother is not what he once was.
People change. But not like this.
