Named France's Best Thriller of the Year, Death from the Woods is a twisted suspense story that introduces readers to one of the most engaging and complex characters in years-Elise Andrioli, a thirty-ish Parisian who becomes the silent witness to a strange little girl's frightening tale..."A premise like no other animates this increasingly creepy tale...Elise Andrioli [is] quadriplegic, mute, and blind...Left briefly alone in her wheelchair in a suburban park, Elise (who can still hear) becomes the helpless confidante to Virginie, a troubled child who whispers to Elise fragmented information about a still-at-large serial killer of young boys...Elise's panicked efforts to communicate what she knows are expertly juxtaposed against taut, suggestive characterizations of acquaintances who variously intrude on, and gradually expand, Elise's world... A beautifully constructed tale that grows scarier by the page."-Kirkus Reviews
