From NEW YORK TIMES BESTELLING author Joy Fielding--a chilling psychological thriller that explores the depths of psychopathic behaviour and the lengths to which a mother will go to protect her daughter.
When an innocent group of campers ventures to the Adirondacks for a trip, they are followed by a murderous pair... A group of unlikely travelling companions--a woman, her two oddball friends, her teenage daughter, and her soon-to-be ex-husband's new fiancee--find themselves on a camping trip in the Adirondacks at the same time that a pair of teenage killers is terrorizing the area.
In this chilling tale of serial killers on the loose from bestseller Fielding (Now You See Her), Valerie Rowe and two Manhattan friends decide at the last minute to head up to the Lodge at Shadow Creek in the Adirondacks to celebrate her 40th birthday. Accompanying them are Val s 16-year-old daughter, Brianne, by her soon-to-be-divorced philanderer of a husband, Evan, and Evan s fianc e, Jennifer. Evan, whom Val still sort of loves, is unable to join them because of business in the city. Val s ill feelings toward Jennifer and her constant verbal sparring with rebellious Brianne add tension, especially after Brianne goes missing, and the odd assortment of campers move from the lodge to tents. The suspense rises as a pair of serial killers, who gleefully dispatched an elderly couple at their isolated Adirondacks cabin in the prologue, seek more victims. The intricate, twisty plot builds to an explosive climax.
