The less I say about the plot of Pines, the first novel in a chilling trilogy by Blake Crouch, the better. Giving you only the skimpiest of summaries will keep the book mysterious and suspenseful—two elements that make it a taut, compelling read. Brilliantly crafted, Pines is a creepy little tale that offers surprises around every corner. I don't want to say too much for fear of giving away any of its secrets, so let me just say that I loved this book. It's tense, it's twisty, it's a thriller so addicting you won't be able to stop reading until you've finished not just Pines, but also the entire series. Then, and only then, will you finally be able to breathe again. Maybe.

If this were a movie (the books have been made into a mini-series on Fox), it would be rated:
for strong language and violence/gore
