In The Woods
has won several awards for being a best first novel. The plot of the
story circles around the murder of a twelve year old girl, Katy Devlin,
whose case Rob and his partner Cassie Maddox are assigned to
investigate. Twenty years prior to the novel's events, twelve year old
Adam and his two best friends failed to come home after playing in the
same woods. Adam is found shivering, clawing the bark of a nearby tree,
with blood on his shoes and slash marks on his back. He is unable to
tell them what happened or where his friends are. They are never found
and his amnesia holds to the present day. He now goes by his middle
name, Rob, to avoid media attention and is a detective. The same
detective is now investigating this crime.
murder takes the detectives along many lines of investigation. Her
death might be related to her father’s protests against a new motorway
meant to go straight through a dig site, one of the students on the dig
might have attacked her, or it might be related to the fact that Katy
might have been abused by her father or someone else in the family.
