In this thriller by the #1 New York Times bestselling author, mischievous teenagers are met by a twisted serial killer deep in the Montana woods.

The menacing woods of Grizzly Falls, Montana, are not for the faint of heart. But for local teenagers, they're the perfect setting for partying and pranks. They don't know that lately there's a rapt audience amid the tangled trees, a killer with a different kind of game in mind. At the right moment, with the right victim, the deadly play begins.


Detective Regan Pescoli is counting the days until her maternity leave. Exhausted and emotional, the last thing she needs is another difficult case—let alone a suspected serial killer. When a reality show arrives in town, and Regan's teenage daughter gets swept up in the media storm, she and her partner, Selena Alvarez, must somehow distinguish between rumor and truth. As more victims are found, and the nightmare begins to strike closer to home, Pescoli races to find the terror lingering in the darkness, where there are too many places to hide—and countless places to die...

  • Publisher's Weekly

    January 9, 2017
    Bestseller Jackson’s overly busy seventh Selena Alvarez/Regan Pescoli novel (after 2014’s Deserves to Die) finds the Grizzly Falls, Mont., detectives dealing with bigfoot sightings, teenagers with too many secrets, and a murder. Around midnight one night, Pescoli’s daughter, Bianca, joins a large group of fellow teens who are playing a clandestine game of hide-and-seek in the forest, where, to her horror, Bianca spots an immense, hairy monster. When the beast comes after her, Bianca runs. After falling into a creek, she stumbles on a decomposing body. A few hours later, early in the morning, Pescoli, who thought her daughter was spending the night with a friend, receives a phone call from a police officer she knows, who suggests she come to the old lumber camp where a shaken Bianca and the other game players who haven’t already fled the scene have gathered. Alvarez later identifies the body as that of Destiny Rose Montclaire, a missing teenager. More deaths follow as Jackson’s plot spins in too many different directions to achieve much suspense. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.
