Stranger in the Woods: A Tense Psychological Thriller

Written by Anni Taylor

New From the Author of the Bestselling Novel, The Game You Played

A town harbouring dark secrets. People who’ll do anything to hide what they’ve done.
Photographer Isla Wilson is thrilled she’s landed her dream job, but the clients who hired her are getting stranger by the day.

It sounded so perfect – a month’s assignment at the misty, sprawling Scottish Highlands property of brilliant architect Alban McGregor, and his wife, Jessica.

But deep in the woods, there is a chilling playhouse.
Two years ago, the McGregors’ daughter, Elodie, died after being abducted and taken there. Alban refuses to knock the playhouse down, and he keeps a picture of it on his wall.

Isla senses that both Alban and Jessica are keeping terrible secrets. And it seems that others in the town are also veiling the truth.

The closer Isla comes to getting answers about Elodie, the more the danger mounts. And with a dense cover of snow now blanketing the town, all chance of escape might already be gone.


“It’s not often that I’m surprised by a twist, but Stranger in the Woods has an absolutely killer ending that I didn’t see coming at all. With the atmospheric setting of rural Scotland, and a cast of imaginative characters, it’s easy to become immersed in Stranger in the Woods. I loved the way the Scottish tales of ‘tattie bogles’ and the sweeping majesty of the Highlands were weaved into the story. This is a fantastic dark mystery with a twist in the tale.” – Sarah.A.Denzil, author of Silent Child
