Maya is still haunted by the cabin – deep in the woods, where the trees are so dense it’s easy to miss.

She hasn’t been there since the summer she was seventeen. Since the day her best friend Aubrey died and Maya’s world shattered.

Maya’s memories of that summer are fragmented, but there is one thing she knows for sure, and that’s who murdered Aubrey. Even if no one believes her.

Now, seven years later, another woman from their hometown has died in the same strange, unexplained way.

Maya knows only she can uncover the truth and save the next innocent girl. But to do that she’ll have to go back – back to the forest, back to the house in the pines . . .


Ana Ryes delves into a complex female friendship and the fragile nature of memory to weave together a smart, eerie, and completely addictive story of psychological suspense. Reyes is a debut author to watch
