John Saul’s chilling psychological thriller is a harrowing tale of the darkness that lurks in seemingly ordinary places.
When teenager Lindsay Marshall disappears from her bedroom one night, the police suspect that she’s just another runaway, sulking over her family’s impending move. But her mother, Kara, suspects something more sinister.
In her frantic search for answers, Kara is befriended by Patrick Shields, whose wife and daughter were killed in a house fire. He, too, suspects something evil is afoot.
As more people begin to disappear from houses that are up for sale, Patrick and Kara’s suspicions are confirmed: someone is stalking their peaceful community, walking undetected among them, and harvesting humans for a foul purpose no sane person could ever imagine.
