Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her "nest" of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn't seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora ("Lee""?") to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not "what happened?" but "what have I done?," Nora ("Lee""?") tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora ("Lee""?") must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past. In the tradition of Paula Hawkins's instant "New York Times" bestseller "The Girl On the Train" and S. J. Watson's riveting national sensation "Before I Go To Sleep," this gripping literary debut from UK novelist Ruth Ware will leave you on the edge of your seat through the very last page.

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 "
The next big thing in crime fiction - does what for friendships what Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train did for marriages
