INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware’s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller. Sometimes the only thing to fear...is yourself. When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to a hen party in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new and a haunting realization creeps in—they are not alone in the woods. Forty-eight hours later, Nora wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not “what happened?” but “what have I done?” she tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.

Di hutan yang amat sangat gelap, ada sebuah rumah yang amat sangat gelap. Dan, di rumah yang amat sangat gelap ... ada rahasia yang lebih baik dikubur untuk selamanya. Sebuah undangan pesta bujang membawa Nora datang ke sebuah mansion mewah di dalam hutan. Apa yang seharusnya menjadi momen-momen menyenangkan bersama teman-teman SMA-nya justru berubah menegangkan sewaktu pembunuhan terjadi. Di tengah kepanikan dan ketidakpastian, Nora meninggalkan hutan. Semua menjadi kabur setelahnya. Nora sendiri terbangun di sebuah kamar rumah sakit dengan kepala yang berdenyut menyakitkan. Dia lantas dihadapkan bukan oleh pertanyaan apa yang telah terjadi, melainkan apa yang telah dia perbuat. Polisi mencurigainya sebagai pelaku pembunuhan. Nora bersikeras meyakinkan bahwa dia bukan pelakunya. Namun sayang, dia menyadari bahwa ingatannya telah banyak yang hilang. Akhirnya, meski dikhianati oleh ingatannya sendiri, Nora berjuang membuktikan bahwa dia tak bersalah. Akan tetapi, benarkah demikian? [Mizan, Bentang Pustaka, Novel, Thriller, Terjemahan, Indonesia]

"In the aftermath of a heartbreaking tragedy, a scholar and writer uses Dante's Divine Comedy to shepherd him through the dark wood of grief and mourning--a rich and emotionally resonant memoir of suffering, hope, love, and the power of literature to inspire and heal the most devastating loss.Where do we turn when we lose everything? Joseph Luzzi found the answer in the opening of The Divine Comedy: "In the middle of our life's journey, I found myself in a dark wood. "When Luzzi's pregnant wife was in a car accident--and died forty-five minutes after giving birth to their daughter, Isabel--he finds himself a widower and first-time father at the same moment. While he grieves and cares for his infant daughter, miraculously delivered by caesarean before his wife passed, he turns to Dante's Divine Comedy for solace.In a Dark Wood tells the story of how Dante helps the author rebuild his life. He follows the structure of The Divine Comedy, recounting the Inferno of his grief, the Purgatory of healing and raising Isabel on his own, and then Paradise of the rediscovery of love.A Dante scholar, Luzzi has devoted his life to teaching and writing about the poet. But until he turned to the epic poem to learn how to resurrect his life, he didn't realize how much the poet has given back to him. A meditation on the influence of great art and its power to give us strength in our darkest moments, In a Dark Wood opens the door into the mysteries of Dante's epic poem. Beautifully written and flawlessly balanced, Luzzi's book is a hybrid of heart-rending memoir and critical insight into one of the greatest pieces of literature in all of history. In a Dark Wood draws us into man's descent into hell and back: it is Dante's journey, Joseph Luzzi's, and our very own"--
