When Nora awakes in the hospital, covered with blood, she know that she did something horrible, but she can't remember what happened. Her last memory is of reluctantly attending a bachelorette party for a woman she lost touch with after high school. In the same vein of Girl on a Train, the mystery is revealed slowly, and the narrator may or may not be unreliable. A delicious pageturner!
“This book has all the trappings of a good English mystery -- an approaching storm, an isolated house, mysterious footprints, and a group of relative strangers all locked in together. Ware's characters are playfully crafted, and just as you think they're becoming a cliche, they do something totally unexpected. In a Dark, Dark Wood is a titillating exploration of the classic tropes, layered with the complex style and hard edges found in the best modern thrillers. Highly recommended!”
