Wren Blythe's enjoyed living in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. But when a little girl goes missing, a search ensues, reviving the story of Ava Coons, the murderess believed to still roam the forest. In 1930, Ava Coons has spent the last several years carrying the mantle of mystery since the day she emerged from the woods, spattered with blood, dragging a logger's ax. She's accepted she'll never remember what happened to her family and that the people of Tempter's Creek will always blame her for their deaths. After a member of the town is murdered, and another goes missing, rumors spread that Ava's secret is perhaps more malicious than previously imagined.
