The most disturbing novel of 2009. Read it if you dare.

Stevie is a killer.

When she kills people she asks them: “WHAT DO YOU SEE?”

She’s about to find out…

After an accident in which her mother dies, Stevie has a near-death experience, and finds herself in a room full of people – everyone she’s ever pissed off. They clutch at her, scratch and tear at her. But she finds herself drawn back to this place, again and again, determined to unlock its secrets. Which means she has to die, again and again.

And she starts to wonder whether other people see the same room… when they die.

The most disturbing novel of 2009. Read it if you dare.

Review:

“With outstanding control, Warren manipulates Stevie’s voice to create a portrait of horror that in no way reads like a first novel.”
- Publishers Weekly (Starred) Pick of the Week

“Kaaron Warren is a fresh, amazingly talented voice out of Australia. You *must* read her work.”
- Ellen Datlow

“Hugely and genuinely disturbing”
- SciFi Now

“Simply gut-wrenching”
- Jon Courtenay Grimwood, SFX

“Powerful stuff. So powerful, in fact, that my throat was hurting with my attempts to keep my emotions under control. I was completely drawn in, totally immersed. I felt ill much of the time.”
- Russell Kirkpatrick, bestselling author of “Across the Face of the World”
