What secrets lay buried in the heart of the forest?

When Maya strays into the forest she also walks straight into a nightmare. It's not just the horrific discovery she makes among the trees, it's what's waiting for her at home. Something too terrifying to believe in. She's not even sure she believes it herself.

Perhaps she's going mad, only imagining the sounds in the night and the feeling of being stalked. Maybe she didn't see anything in the forest after all?

And there's another question: what was she doing there in the first place . . . alone . . . at dusk? All she knows is that the eyes of a fox drew her there.

They will do so again.

Review quote

An atmospheric mystery thriller with a hint of otherworldliness about it . . . As with all Tim Bowler books, this one comes highly recommended. * TheBookbag.co.uk * A dark, psychological thriller with genuine moments of chilling horror and an intriguing mystical element. * Readingzone.com * Buried Thunder is a tour de force; a compelling and clever thriller that reels in its readers from the first intriguing sentence and holds them in a vice-like grip to the heart-stopping denouement. Atmospheric, tense and bristling with menace, the brilliant plotting leaves little room for guessing and there's no chance of solving this mystery until the last page has turned. * Lancaster Evening Post * The edgy, staccato conversations that typify the novel are completely at one with its prevailing mood of menace and impending terror * The Irish Times * It's possible to be chilled to the bone without meeting any vampires. In Tim Bowler's frightening and well-paced Buried Thunder, Maya's enemy is a personal demon . . . The story is strong. * The Observer *
