Eerie, terrifying, and unputdownable, The Ruins
is Scott Smith's first novel since his acclaimed debut A Simple Plan
earned rave reviews and stormed best seller lists.
The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.
This is what happens from the moment the searchers, moving into the wild interior, begin to suspect that there is an insidious, horrific "other" among them.
