Desperate people, desperate situations. In Dark Spaces, Snyder explores the decisions made—and irreversible actions taken—when the walls are closing in, when knuckles are white and teeth are bared. During their sentence at a women’s prison, four fearless inmates have taken up the intense job of firefighting under their captain, Ruby. When opportunity strikes during an intense forest fire, this crew of badass women make a decision to seize it, together. Will this crew of daring female firefighters walk away with ruby lined pockets or burn up in flames?


Set six weeks into the slow burn of the historic Arroyo fire, Dark Spaces: Wildfire explores the decisions of a desperate crew of women from an inmate firefighting program on the frontlines. Their newest recruit—a white-collar convict with a deep network of shady dealers—discovers that they’re mere miles from a former associate’s abandoned mansion.  Enchanted by a score that would truly change their lives, she proposes a plan to abandon their duties and hunt for riches under the cover of smoke and ash. But with the fire closing in on the forest around them,  is this a flicker of fortune or a deadly trap?
