Jason McIntyreVOTED a TOP DEBUT AUTHOR --Goodreads Choice Awards At 29, Hannah Garretty is pursuing her lifelong dream of being a paid photographer. But in a curl of circumstance, she's snatched from her bohemian life on the island and vanishes into a forest lair where unspeakable things have happened...and will continue to happen. As Hannah grapples with her captivity and the knowledge bestowed to her by a special gift, we catch glimpse of her past life, before the abduction, through the lens of her childhood on the mainland and the last time she came face to face with her own mortality. The story is visceral and powerful, exploring the duality of our consuming lives versus our feeling lives, our purpose in being, and whether there is a scrap of light in anything as dark as Hannah's ordeal. "What [McIntyre] gives readers is a highly satisfying glimpse of a very real terror." --Ryne Douglas Pearson, screenwriter of "Knowing" "[McIntyre] writes some of the most beautiful sentences being published today." --Vincent Zandri, author of "The Remains" "Definitely felt like reading Neil Gaiman with occasional creepiness of Stephen King. Jason is my all-time favorite writer, his stories keep me up all night" --Evie Seo, Bookish Reviews "This is a roller coaster ride: you're in the hot sun, chugging to the top, anticipating the drop the whole way and then--boom--the drop comes and you're gasping for air. The hot wind blasts you and your guts are in your throat. In the last half of the book, some scenes had me by the larynx. Highly recommended!" --Sony Reader Store "A must read, but not for the faint of heart." --EZread.com
