The eerie and bizarre incidents begin as soon as fourteen-year-old Maya's family takes over the quaint old Rowen Tree Hotel. First she makes a horrific discovery in the surrounding forest. Then Maya realizes that she is being closely watched, even as she sleeps. It is all too terrifying to believe. Perhaps she's going mad and is only imagining the sounds in the night and the feeling of  being stalked. Maybe she didn't see anything in the forest after all. Certainly the police and villagers think she is either lying or crazy. And there's another question: what was she doing alone in the woods in the first place? All she knows is that the mesmerizing eyes of a wild fox drew her there. Those eyes will find her again.

There is often an edge of mysticism in Tim Bowler's books and - wisely - he doesn't offer up answers.
