Sarah Lotz’s novel The Three is currently in production as an 8 part TV series for the BBC, while her co-written work The Apartment is under option by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners. In “Body in the Woods” Sarah delivers one of her most gripping and disturbing stories to date.
One foul night while her husband is away, an old friend turns up on Claire’s doorstep and begs for her help. She knows she should refuse, but she owes him. Despite her better judgement, Claire finds herself helping to bury something in the woods. The question is, will it stay buried, and can Claire live with the knowledge of what she has done?
“Sarah Lotz is a natural born storyteller. Like the hand reaching up from the dark well, she’ll drag you into her thrall. You'll come up gasping.” – Lauren Beukes
“… really wonderful. A cross between Michael Crichton and Shirley Jackson, hard to put down and vastly entertaining.” – Stephen King (of The Three)
“Tiptoeing the tightrope between fantasy and horror.” – Daily Mail
“Dark, subtle and completely unputdownable, I was enthralled from the opening line to the last.” – Sarah Pinborough (of The Three)
