About the Author
Margaret Moore was born in Ballymena, County Antrim, and educated at Larne Grammar School before reading English at Queen's University, Belfast. After three years' school teaching in Coleraine, she qualified as an educational psychologist through study at Edinburgh University and the Tavistock Clinic, London, and subsequently worked in child guidance and school psychological services in England and Ulster, and taught at Queen's University and Ulster Polytechnic. Since 1978 she has lived in the Cambridge area and been employed in clerical and information posts which give her more time to write. Forests of the Night is her first novel.

Martin Hobbs, 13, was so disturbed by the breakup of his parents' marriage that he had been receiving therapy at a Cambridgeshire clinic, to the dismay of his attractive mother who resented being involved. She had already suggested that treatment was no longer necessary now that Martin was settled in a new school under the guidance of a wise acting headmaster, but she could not have foreseen that their association with the clinic would have such a dramatic end. One night, while she was working illicitly on its premises, her son ran out screaming that a tiger had killed her. What prowling beast had he seen? Was it real or the product of his disturbed imagination? Chief Inspector Baxter set himself to find out. He soon learned that there were hidden depths to Cheryl Hobbs, who was planning to remarry now that she had amassed money by decidedly doubtful means. But who was the mystery man? What of her ex-husband, anxious to regain custody of Martin? What secret discovered in the confidential files of the clinic could drive someone who knew of her discovery to kill?
