What you need to know before your trail

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead and their father – Pikeville’s notorious defence attorney – devastated. But it’s what couldn’t be seen, what remained hidden, which caused the most long lasting consequences of that shocking night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself – the archetypal good daughter. But then violence comes to Pikeville again …

Travel Guide


Fictional in Northern Georgia but some two hours north of Atlanta. The woods where the girls go missing is a large expanse of despair:

“The neighbour’s acreage went past the horizon, a clear open plane that would likely lead to a bullet in Charlie’s back if she ran in that direction. Trees bordered the far right of the property, a dense forest that Gamma warned was probably filled with ticks. There was a creek on the other side of the forest tat fed into a tunnel that snaked underneath a weather tower and lead to a paved but rarely used road.”

“A swampy fishing hole”

Pikeville may well have the sign – Abandon hope all yee who enter here
