Dennis L. McKiernan Synopsis: At the Edge of the Forest is a standalone title by Dennis L. McKiernan. Elizabeth Conway is missing, and someone is trying to kill Raven Cathleens Haven is a hundreds of years old dwelling at the edge of the forest known as Hunters Wood. To this retreat comes 27-year-old Raven Conway, bestselling author and Trustee of an enormous fortune. It has been three years since Raven has seen her younger sister, Elizabeth, who is afflicted with a baffling ailment that keeps her confined to the refuge and the fringes of the woodland beyond. But when Raven arrives she finds out that her sister has vanished, as did their mother seven years ago. Whether Elizabeth has been murdered or kidnapped, or has fled in fear, or has run away with a lover, Raven does not know, but she is determined to find the only sister she has. Yet even as Raven looks for her sister, killers come looking for Raven; someone wants her dead. Hired by the Trust to keep Raven alive, Nicholas Roga – ex-Army Ranger and the head of Blackledge Security – joins Raven in her search for Elizabeth and in untangling the mysteries revealed. A heart-pounding mystery that deepens at every turn – involving ancient legends, inexplicable kings’ grants, a secret Presidential Executive Order, a fortune with a shadowy past, and a search for answers to questions too long ignored.
