Summary
"In the tradition of Stephen King (The Talisman), Scott Smith (The Ruins), and Jason Mott (The Returned), award-winning playwright Robert Levy spins a dark tale of alienation and belonging, the familiar and the surreal, family secrets and the search for truth in his debut supernatural thriller. When Michael Whitley, otherwise known as Blue, takes three friends into the hinterlands of Canada to sell a house he's inherited, it at first seems to everyone like the perfect getaway from New York. But when Blue and the pregnant Elisa disappear into the forest, it's not clear if they were running from their problems, or toward something else. Left behind, the ethereal Gabe and Elisa's husband, Jason, are left to search for their loved ones, unravel the truth behind the land they're in, and, in the process, question everything they thought they knew about their relationships. Locals talk of UFOs, faeries, and the Other Kind lurking out in the wild. But when Elisa returns through the forest alone, nothing could be stranger than the new mystery she brings with her"--
