What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.
"Sometimes the only thing to fear is yourself."
When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to the English countryside for a weekend away, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new, an unnerving memory shatters Leonora s reserve, and a haunting realization creeps in: the party is not alone in the woods."

Reviews

I started IN A DARK, DARK WOOD on an airplane, kept dipping into it whenever I was left alone, devoured another big chunk on the flight home, and after that surrendered myself to it until the last revelation had bloomed, the final surprise had exploded, and the bittersweet conclusive turn had folded the final page. Ruth Ware has written an exciting, and in fact amazing book that never stops circling around behind the reader and clapping its cold hands over her eyes.--Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author
I raced through this, totally unable to put it down...Dark, smart and compulsive.--Nicci Cloke, author of Lay Me Down
"So gripping. So glad my hen days are behind me. It s going to be huge."--Tamar Cohen, author of Dying for Christmas and The Broken"
"Likely to be the next "Gone Girl.""--Elizabeth Willse "Surrounded by Books "
"An English psychological thriller...compared to "Gone Girl "and "Girl on the Train.""--Steve Bennett "My San Antonio "
"If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware s analysis of the power-games some women revel in and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane."--Patricia Nicol "Independent ""
