'The world has teeth and it could bite you with them anytime it wanted. Trisha McFarland discovered this when she was nine years old. Lost in the woods.' Trisha has only veered a little way off the trail - a welcome break from the bickering of her brother and recently divorced mother. But in her panic to get back to the path, Trisha takes a turning that leads into the tangled undergrowth. Deeper and deeper in the terrifying woods. At first it's just the bugs, midges and mosquitoes. Then comes the hunger. For comfort she tunes her Walkman into broadcasts of the Red Sox baseball games and the performances of her hero Tom Gordon. And when the reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her. As darkness begins to fall, Trisha begins to give up hope of being found. Alive. And as she struggles for survival and a way out, she realises that she is not alone. There's something else in the woods - watching. Waiting . . .

'A compelling battle for survival that you dare not put down' Daily Mail 'Moving, gripping. One of his best ... A literary home run.' Mirror 'Utterly compulsive, bears ample witness to King's mastery of his craft' Mail on Sunday
