In A Dark, Dark WoodBook - 2015 | First Scout Press hardcover edition.
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.
