The killing woods
Fatal attraction, primal fear, survival in the forest—from the author of the Printz Honor Book Stolen comes the highly anticipated thriller about deadly games played in the dark.
Ashlee Parker is dead, and Emily Shepherd’s dad is accused of the crime. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he emerges from the woods carrying the girl’s broken body. “Gone,” he says, then retreats into silence.
What really happened that wild night? Emily knows in her bones that her father is innocent—isn’t he? Before he’s convicted, she’s got to uncover the truth. Does Damon Hilary, Ashlee’s charismatic boyfriend, have the answers? Or is he only playing games with her … the kinds of games that can kill?
