Counter Newcomer Sallie Bissell ushers you into a labyrinth of psychological terror in an electrifying debut, a novel of survival and friendship as three women embark on a hellish journey through a treacherous wilderness.

Assistant D.A. Mary Crow has come a long way from a tiny cabin in Little Jump Off, North Carolina. The toughest young prosecutor in Georgia, "Killer Crow" is going home, to visit her mother's grave and then to hike with her two closest friends on the wilderness trail she loved as a child.

Mary knows well the dangers these beautiful mountains hold: rugged climbs, treacherous precipices, dense fog, and acres of impenetrable brambles. But there are greater threats here, ones she never anticipated.

Her most recent courtroom victory made more than headlines -- it made Mary a deadly enemy. He's tracking Mary into the mountains to wreak vengeance -- and to bury a shattering secret. But he will not be the only predator who stalks the women through this merciless terrain.

Here Mary and her friends will find a will to survive they never knew they possessed. Here they will find a capacity for loyalty -- and for violence -- they never dreamed possible...deep within themselves and in the forest of harm.
