Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about to change again.

For Paul Copeland, the county prosecutor of Essex, New Jersey, mourning the loss of his sister has only recently begun to subside. Cope, as he is known, is now dealing with raising his six-year-old daughter as a single father after his wife has died of cancer. Balancing family life and a rapidly ascending career as a prosecutor distracts him from his past traumas, but only for so long. When a homicide victim is found with evidence linking him to Cope, the well-buried secrets of the prosecutor's family are threatened.

Is this homicide victim one of the campers who disappeared with his sister? Could his sister be alive? Cope has to confront so much he left behind that summer 20 years ago: his first love, Lucy; his mother, who abandoned the family; and the secrets that his Russian parents might have been hiding even from their own children. Cope must decide what is better left hidden in the dark and what truths can be brought to the light.

    "Great book "

    I have never listened to one of this author's books, but I am now very impressed after listening to The Woods. Scott Brick was brilliant as usual.

    "Fascinating story"

    Enjoyed the story. It kept me listening until early in the morning. Narrator was OK, but most times I could not tell who was speaking from his intonation. I really had to pay more attention to the context of who was talking.

    Loved it. Tho I think other voices should be used for different characters. His voice makes it hard to picture the women in the story...lol

    "Good story!!"

    I enjoyed this book, his work is easy to follow and he has creative ideas. The narrative was interesting; at times I thought he sounded like Dracula and at other times reminded me of those old movies where I expected him to say things like "dame" or "doll". I would recommend this book!

    Story
    "What the hell???"

    I wanted to like this book, maybe because I like Harlan Coben, but what ever the reason I forced myself to listen to the end.

    This book drug my eyeballs through the hot sand it was so slow, and not just that, it jumped all over the place. The first part of the story was really good, and I thought it was an important part of where the story was going. But noooooo...... It just slowly very very slowly bored me to frustrating tears.

    I had this book for several weeks before I forced myself to finish. I can't believe I was fooled by that five minute sample teaser that you listen to before you purchase a book. Was tricked! I was mislead! I feel so gullible. I want my money back!
