TITLE: THE WOODS
AUTHOR: HARLAN COBEN
Twenty years ago, four teenagers walked from their summer camp dorms into the woods. The next day two of them were found murdered, while the other two were never found or seen again.
Paul Copeland has always felt terrible about that night. He was supposed to be watching the kids that night, but instead went off with Lucy, until terrible screams interrupted their night of passion. And one of the missing kids, was Paul's sister.
Now, twenty years later, Paul is a County Prosecutor involved in a case that could end his career, and a widower.
Then a murdered man is found, and Paul is convinced it's one of the two teenagers that went missing that night. And if this man was, up until recently, alive, then the same might be true for Paul's sister.
Meanwhile, Lucy is living a solitary life, trying to drown the past in Vodka, when that past trespasses into the present in a most unexpected way.
Thrown back together, Paul and Lucy set out to discover exactly what did happen that night, while at the same time discovering that their feelings for each other are still very close to the surface.
A very thrilling read. I read some people complaining about the ending of this book, but I didn't have any problems with it.
