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?
“Eerily dark, with clever clues sprinkled into the narrative, this spooky, eyebrow-raising mystery is a serpentine game of whodunit. The author does a fantastic job of crafting an antihero who is desperate to remember if he’s the bad guy and a heroine who is determined to prove her father’s innocence. Christopher keeps you guessing with a macabre play of the senses.”—RT Books Reviews (4½ stars)
