Caitlin Alexander has never traveled much beyond her hometown of Pendleton, South Carolina. Then a fellowship takes her to London, where she divides her time between the hectic city and the hush of Epping Forest, where she’s studying the “wood wide web”—the complex social network that allows trees to communicate with each other.

But, while Caitlin is studying the trees, someone is watching her, someone who seems to know her every move, someone with access to the most intimate parts of her life. As her stalker grows bolder and more violent, she loses faith in everyone around her—her advisor, her best friend, her former lover… No one is above suspicion, and nowhere is safe.

As shocking and psychologically intense as Gillian Flynn’s blockbuster, Gone Girl, Carolina Carter’s second novel is an electrifying thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page. If you love Jayne Ann Krentz, A.G. Riddle, Iris Johansen, and J.D. Robb, you’re sure to enjoy this chilling journey into the darkest corners of the Internet.
