I don't remember when this book was originally published---one of my only complaints about buying books from Amazon is that the original dates of many books are not given---but it was great then, and it is great now. I have always been amazed that the Mary Crow series, of which
i have read four books thus far, did not become a phenomenon as John Grisham's first books did. Great characters, a refreshingly creative plot,
beautiful writing, and a fascinating glimpse into Native American traditions and beliefs. The book, granted, has several graphic and violent scenes, but they made me care even more for the characters experiencing them.
The book has some comic relief in its depiction of a real New York City girl going camping for the first time, in woods familiar to lead character Mary Crow, but dense and rugged and scary to the uninitiated two women who accompany her. There are a few descriptive flashbacks to Mary's
job as a prosecuting attorney which set the stage for the second predator. Meanwhile, the first predator ranks right up there in the top ten
of nasty psychopaths. The forest becomes character itself, dangerous and very challenging even as it remains entirely neutral. The forest provides the setting, but has no say about who populates it or whether they will ever get out of it.
This book provides a lot of action, as well as good dialogue, and double the fun with not just one whack-job chasing the women, but two.
The characters in the closest town are interesting and provide yet more of Mary Crow's history, which includes the fact that her mother was
murdered when Mary was a teenager. All the plot lines weave together, but not too neatly. I really enjoyed this book.

I can't believe this is a debut novel -- I can't wait for more books by Sallie Bissell.
In The Forest of Harm is a thriller that also celebrates the courage and determination of women. My favorite part is when Mary is watching her friends walk away from her and she thinks of them as her "War Women". This is not a case of "Mary Crow saves the day". It is a team effort between her and her two friends, friends that have never been in the strange woods before that Mary knows so well. The twists and turns of the plot are intruiging. The whole idea of the women being attacked by a madman, and then tracking that madman to save their friend, totally unaware that a very different kind of madman is tracking them -- it made for incredibly suspenseful reading. I don't agree that with other reviewers who say that it showed more victimization of women. I thought it showed the triumph of women and their grit and determination despite being faced with a situation they never expected to encounter in their wildest dreams. As to the reviewer who said that one of the murders was left "unsolved", I think that is because Bissell is saving that for one of her upcoming books about DA Mary Crow.

This fast-paced story had me on the edge of my seat from the get go! The characters, plot, and setting were exquisitely done. Fans of Karin Slaughter and Barbara Kingsolver will appreciate this exciting thriller with engaging descriptions of the ecology and Cherokee people.

Having read the newest entry in the series first, I'm now working my way through the Mary Crow novels in the correct order. This was Sallie Bissell's debut novel, and it shows, as she does fall into some of the first novel pitfalls. However, it's still a good read (and much better than the Twilight books.)

Mary Crow's world was shattered when her mother was viciously raped and murdered twelve years ago. Since then, Mary has been to college and law school far from her mountain roots. Along the way she picked up two best friends, Alex and Joan, also attorneys. Mary, assistant DA, has been winning in the courtroom lately, putting away scum in hopes of atoning for being unable to save her mother from her attacker.

The last conviction involved a high-profile, wealthy family's son. Mary is ready to leave the courtroom drama behind for a few days, so she invites her best friends on a camping trip back home. Unfortunately, the brother of the convicted killer is out for revenge. On top of that, there is a mountain man who find the girls just too tasty to pass up.

In order for me to discuss the issues I have with the storyline, I need to put on a SPOILER ALERT warning!

1. I don't care who you are or how safe you believe yourself to be, you NEVER go into the woods without telling someone exactly where you'll be. You also need to take as many safety precautions as possible.
2. When the girls thought it was all over, but Mitch Whitman showed up and they ended up tied up again? It is like a movie where the director doesn't know how to end it.
3. And now I can't remember, but there was something that was brought up and then never dealt with again. I hate that.

Still a decent debut and a good start to the series.

The plot was just too unbelievable for me to take the book very seriously. Not only is one backwoods maniac after her; there is another sub-plot with a guy from Atlanta coming after her. Her little idol kind of bugged me. Some of the characters were jokes and there was simply too much unnecessary violence. I wouldn't buy another book by this author although if someone gave me one I might read it.
