This research focused on the plot of mystery novel entitled The Killing Wood by Lucy Christopher. This popular literature is interesting because it has a unique issue. The uniqueness is Emily Shepherd’s Dad who was suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was accused as a murder by bringing a dead girl body named Ashlee to his house. Meanwhile Emily’s Dad was not a criminal. Based on that issue, this research discuss how does Ashlee’s death affect Emily who could not accept her Dad accused as a murder and how Emily’s affection to her father could deny the accusation. To attain those two questions, the researcher uses formula approach by Cawelty and phenomenology as the supporting theory. Using qualitative descriptive method, the researcher found that Emily’s big affection and strong belief of her Dad innocence encourages her to do an investigation on Ashlee’s murder. Emily also reveal the truth about the murder of Ashlee based on what happened in the Darkwood.
