Publisher's Summary

From USA Today and number-one Amazon best-selling author Jeremy Bates comes a tale of mystery and horror set in Japan's ancient Suicide Forest, a place that is easy to enter but, for some, impossible to leave.  

Just outside of Tokyo lies Aokigahara, a vast forest and one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Japan...and also the most infamous spot to commit suicide in the world. Legend has it that the spirits of those many suicides are still roaming, haunting deep in the ancient woods.  

When bad weather prevents a group of friends from climbing neighboring Mt. Fuji, they decide to spend the night camping in Aokigahara. But they get more than they bargained for when one of them is found hanged in the morning - and they realize there might be some truth to the legends after all.  

Contains mature themes.

Loved this book!!

I lived in Japan for 15 years and am obsessed with the Aokigahara forest. The author did an outstanding job with this story and the characters!

very good

very well written, I did not expect the ending at all and that is tough to do as an avid scary story reader.

It was good , but...

I thought it would be much spookier. It was so lost in the details I thought it would never end and I really hated the path he took at end. Oh well. :-). It was still well written and good characters. Good narrator

Relationship angst with a heavy dose of mediocre

I don't understand all the 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon / here on Audible for this story. The main character's relationship troubles became like a soap opera about halfway in. There were some unexplained deaths (suicides) in Suicide Forest. The final "twist" was pretty ho hum. Would like my 10 hours back.
