Darkly brilliant and intuitive private detective Charlie Parker returns in the thrilling New York Times bestselling series: “Read this with the lights on and the doors locked” (BookReporter.com).
Nature has to be held back, and the trees kept to their domain. The trees . . . and what dwells among them.
Deep in the Maine woods, a wrecked plane is discovered. It was never reported missing, and there are no bodies, but what it conceals is powerful beyond comprehension: a record of those who have struck a deal with the devil.
A new battle is about to commence in the war between light and darkness, and the list proves to be a deadly weapon. While private detective Charlie Parker fears his own name is there, he is certain that it must be secured from evil. For others, too, have joined the search: a beautiful, scarred woman with a taste for killing; a silent child who remembers his own death; and a serial killer known as the Collector. But the woods, too, are preparing, for other secrets lurk within their depths. . . .
Someone survived the crash. Something survived. And now it waits.
