Buried Thunder Synopsis

What secrets lay buried in the heart of the forest? When Maya strays into the forest she also walks straight into a nightmare. It's not just the horrific discovery she makes among the trees, it's what's waiting for her at home. Something too terrifying to believe in. She's not even sure she believes it herself. Perhaps she's going mad - only imagining the sounds in the night and the feeling of being stalked. Maybe she didn't see anything in the forest after all? And there's another question: what was she doing there in the first place ...alone ...at dusk? All she knows is that the eyes of a fox drew her there. They will do so again.

Buried Thunder Press Reviews

'It's possible to be chillded to the bone without meeting any vampires. In Tim Bowler's frightening and well-paced Buried Thunder, Maya's enemy is a personal demon... The story is strong' - The Observer
