INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware’s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.

Sometimes the only thing to fear...is yourself.

When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to a hen party in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new and a haunting realization creeps in—they are not alone in the woods.

Forty-eight hours later, Nora 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?” she tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.

Read from the Book

In a Dark, Dark Wood chapter 1 It hurts. Everything hurts. The light in my eyes, the pain in my head. There’s a stench of blood in my nostrils, and my hands are sticky with it. “Leonora?” The voice comes dim through a fog of pain. I try to shake my head; my lips won’t form the word. “Leonora, you’re safe—you’re at the hospital. We’re taking you to have a scan.” It’s a woman, speaking clearly and loudly. Her voice hurts. “Is there anyone we should be calling?” I try again to shake my head. “Don’t move your head,” she says. “You’ve had a head injury.” “Nora,” I whisper. “You want us to call Nora? Who’s Nora?” “Me . . . my name.” “All right, Nora. Just try to relax. This won’t hurt.” But it does. Everything hurts. What has happened? What have I done?

Editorial Reviews

“The best thing about In A Dark, Dark Wood is the eerie atmosphere it creates for this ill-fated weekend, never overwrought, just ominous enough, the glass house where the guests are trapped ‘dark and silent, blending into the trees, almost invisible.’”
