Staff Reviews

"Coming on like an unofficial sequel to the 1956 film The Bad Seed, Andrew Pyper's newest novel is an intriguing combination of ghost story and orphic descent into hell. I devoured this book in a day, I couldn't put it down. This is the perfect book for a rainy day, the beach, or if you're stuck on a plane."

— Joe


ALREADY OPTIONED FOR FILM BY LEGENDARY PICTURES (Inception, the Dark Knight movies, Interstellar)

From the #1 internationally bestselling author of The Demonologist, called "smart, thrilling, utterly unnerving" by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, comes a spine-tingling supernatural thriller about a survivor of a near-death experience haunted by his beautiful, vindictive twin sister.

Most people who have a near-death experience come back alone...

After he survived a fire that claimed the life of his twin sister, Ashleigh, Danny Orchard wrote a bestselling memoir about going to Heaven and back. But despite the resulting fame and fortune, he's never been able to enjoy his second chance at life.

Ash won't let him.

In life, Danny's charming and magnetic twin had been a budding psychopath who privately terrorized her family--and death hasn't changed her wicked ways. Ash has haunted Danny for twenty years and now, just when he's met the love of his life and has a chance at real happiness, she wants more than ever to punish him for being alive--so she sets her sights on Danny's new wife and stepson.

Danny knows what Ash really wants is him, and he's prepared to sacrifice himself in order to save the ones he loves. But to do this, he'll have to meet his sister where she now resides--and hope that this time, he can keep her there forever.
