After her hand is amputated following a tragic accident, Rachel Cooper suffers vivid nightmares of a woman imprisoned in the trunk of a hollow tree, screaming for help. When she begins to experience phantom sensations of leaves and earth with her missing limb, Rachel is terrified she is going mad... but then another hand takes hers, and the trapped woman is pulled into our world. This woman has no idea who she is, but Rachel can't help but think of the mystery of Oak Mary, a female corpse found in a hollow tree, and who was never identified. Three urban legends have grown up around the case; was Mary a Nazi spy, a prostitute or a gypsy witch? Rachel is desperate to learn the truth, but darker forces are at work. For a rule has been broken, and Mary is in a world where she doesn't belong...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Brogden blends sinister undertones into an action-packed, supernatural thriller filled with heart . . . Give this novel to fans of Dean Koontz, Keith Donohue's The Stolen Child, or intense, speculative stories with strong characters and plenty of intrigue." -Booklist

"The mechanics of Brogden's dual worlds are carefully crafted, and the mystery is wrapped in rich folklore and urban myth . . . This elegant horror story has deep psychological and emotional roots." -Publishers Weekly

"Brogden has created another highly satisfying novel here, one that feels both familiar and original . . . This novel should be considered as one of the highlights of the year, for both horror and fantasy lovers." -Cemetery Dance

"A fresh and utterly compelling novel that should be on every horror fan's reading list. If you love dark and well written stories, you won't be disappointed by this novel." -Risingshadow.net

"The notion that folklore-the forms of expressive culture that all of us engage in every single day-actually has supernatural potential is an intriguing one, and Brogden uses it to good effect." -Horrortalk.com

“Fun, supernatural romp!”

More of a supernatural thriller than suspenseful horror. Plenty of action and supernatural mystery to keep the pages turning. Good, easy read for fantasy fans.
