‘Urgent. Come tomorrow. Can’t wait any longer.’

Charli Trenthan plans to leave her hometown of Stone Lake. But when she receives a cryptic message from a member of the Sanctuary, a conservative closed community nestled in the forest, she is determined to find answers.

A gruesome discovery soon lands Charli in hot water with the police, but how is the Sanctuary connected? As she digs deeper, dark secrets are uncovered and the fight to prove her innocence turns into a fight for her life.

A gripping thriller with a shocking conclusion that will leave you spellbound, Deep in the Forest raises questions about who we trust and why.

‘Erina Reddan’s intimate writing lures readers into a heady, syrupy haze. Deep in the Forest is a simmering slow burn of a thriller for those who enjoy the grit and determination in Loraine Peck’s The Second Son or the deep character immersion of Jacqueline Bublitz’s Before You Knew My Name.’

Bookseller + Publisher

‘An intense and layered narrative of shocking secrets and betrayals.’

Lyn Yeowart, author of The Silent Listener

‘Fascinating premise, distinct characters and a menacing thread keeps you hooked … for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale.’ Kylie Kaden, author of The Day the Lies Began

‘An eye-opening insight into the utopian cult-like communities that may very well be nestled in our own backyard. Deep in the Forest will rip you open and leave you chilled to the bone long after its final full stop.’ Veronica Lando, author of The Whispering
