“The buzz…is real. I’ve read it and was blown away. It’s a true nerve-shredder that keeps its mind-blowing secrets to the very end.” —Stephen King
“A chilling and beautiful masterpiece of suspense, cunningly plotted and written with the elegant imagination of a Shirley Jackson or a Sarah Waters. I was completely enthralled.” —Joe Hill, New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman
“A breathtakingly ambitious book, gorgeously written, and never once shies away from showing you its fangs and its beautiful, blood-filled heart. Stop reading this blurb already and open the damn book.” —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts
“The new face of literary dark fiction.” —Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes
“Brilliant. One of the best novels I’ve read in a long, long time… It’s a fucking masterpiece…. A perfect horror novel, but not in the way you expect. Good God — it lives up to the buzz. It’s stunningly good.” —Alex North, author of The Whisper Man
In a boarded-up house on a dead-end street at the edge of the wild Washington woods lives a family of three.
A teenage girl who isn’t allowed outside, not after last time.
A man who drinks alone in front of his TV, trying to ignore the gaps in his memory.
And a house cat who loves napping and reading the Bible.
An unspeakable secret binds them together, but when a new neighbor moves in next door, what is buried out among the birch trees may come back to haunt them all.
