Harper Jennings–mother of a toddler, Iraq war vet, and archaeology graduate–knows she should be happy that she and her husband Hank are finally taking a child-free weekend to go camping.
But shortly after they set up camp, she stumbles upon the body of a camper. Is the shooting a hunting accident? Harper doesn’t think so, and neither does Ranger Daniels, who suspects a local militia.
The militia, known as The Hunt Club, is serious about keeping outsiders off the land they see as their own. And there are plenty of outsiders. Gas company employees are inspecting a pipeline that runs through the woods. Frackers, who have already ruined the local water supply, are planning their next extraction. Environmentalists opposed to fracking are there to prevent more fracking. Weekend hunters show up, hungry to bring home fresh game. And a strange creature resembling a Yeti seems to be stalking and terrorizing campers.
Before the weekend passes, Harper will cross paths with these and other dangerous strangers as she finds herself hunted by killers and desperately lost In the Woods.
Available in hardback, paperback and ebook forms, IN THE WOODS will “appeal to readers who enjoy nontraditional sleuths and stories that feature current issues in the news.” BOOKLIST
