The sudden appearance of a man’s booted feet had Addis snapping her mouth shut. Screaming, she kicked out at the tall, muscular guy as he dragged her from beneath the desk...

It was a scene from a horror movie; Gabriel Kensington and his wife Lydia found, brutally slain in their luxurious home in New Mexico. The frantic, whispered phone call from their teenage daughter Addis, spending the evening with best friend Emerson, quickly alerts the authorities to the killings – and worse, that the killer is still inside the house.

But when detective Alyssa Wyatt and the squad appear at the house, the unthinkable has happened – the girls are nowhere to be found.

Waking up in a dilapidated cabin, nestled high in the woods north of Albuquerque, the girls find themselves at the mercy of a brutal stranger who could take their life at any moment. While they fight for survival, it’s up to Alyssa Wyatt and her partner Cord to discover just why the Kensingtons have been targeted – and fast.

Because for Addis and Emerson, solving this mystery might just mean the difference between survival – or an unthinkable death...

Charly Cox writes emotional characters. I was really in my feelings reading this and it made it so compelling. High stakes and shocks that I never saw coming. (Jessica Belmont, Reviewer) might need to make sure you have nothing else to do when starting this book. You will NOT be able to put it down!! This series just keeps getting better! Literally from the very first pages this author just grabs you and makes sure she keeps you captivated. (Dawn Mequio, Reader Review)

Alyssa Wyatt and her team are back in book 3 of one of the best series! Last year, All His Pretty Girls and The Toybox were two of my favorite books and what a great way to start off the 2021 reading year with Alone in the Woods! Charly Cox has brought the team back in another tense, nail biting, twisty turvy story. (Sarah, Reader Review)

Just Brilliant. Wow, what a book! (T. Wood, Reader Review)
