Help identifying a book ?

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Some time back I read a book the theme of which stuck in my mind, now recently I fancied reading it again...and realised I could remember neither the title or the author ! Quelle horreur ! I know I'm getting old now but even so.....

So: It's set in a city that is stuck in the middle of an impenetrable forest. There is a short hinterland of fields round the city and then forest. All attempts by the people of the city to break out to the outside world are met the dwellers of the forest with extreme prejudice, nobody survives. Eventually though one intrepid band do make it out ending the cities isolation. At the same time the main character is dealing with a sub plot which is the murder of a prominent member of the city.

Ring any bells with anybody ?
