Orion The Hunter  by Sarah Thomas

Karen, a woman suffering from violence in her current marriage, and three of her colleagues gather in the North of England for a corporate survival themed teambuilding race against teams from other companies.  As their disgruntled guide, ex-soldier Mike, who is escaping his own violent past, tries to get them through the tasks necessary to complete the course, petty squabbles, dark ambitions and intense encounters surface to push the entire group into places they are unable to escape from.
