About this title

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of The Double Bind, Skeletons at the Feast, and Secrets of Eden, comes a riveting and dramatic ghost story.

In a dusty corner of a basement in a rambling Victorian house in northern New Hampshire, a door has long been sealed shut with 39 six-inch-long carriage bolts.

The home's new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters. Together they hope to rebuild their lives there after Chip, an airline pilot, has to ditch his 70-seat regional jet in Lake Champlain after double engine failure. Unlike the Miracle on the Hudson, however, most of the passengers aboard Flight 1611 die on impact or drown. The body count? Thirty-nine – a coincidence not lost on Chip when he discovers the number of bolts in that basement door. Meanwhile, Emily finds herself wondering about the women in this sparsely populated White Mountain village – self-proclaimed herbalists – and their interest in her fifth-grade daughters. Are the women mad? Or is it her husband, in the wake of the tragedy, whose grip on sanity has become desperately tenuous?

The result is a poignant and powerful ghost story with all the hallmarks readers have come to expect from bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian: a palpable sense of place, an unerring sense of the demons that drive us, and characters we care about deeply.

The difference this time? Some of those characters are dead.

Review:

'Bohjalian flings himself into a full-blooded romance with the paranormal. In doing so, he earns a place alongside Stephen King ... expertly and, at times, beautifully written, deliciously creepy' --Boston Globe

'Riveting. . .seamless. . .a hell of a good ghost story.' --Justin Cronin, author of The Passage

'A gripping paranormal thriller. . .Meticulous research and keen attention to detail give depth and character to [the] eerie world. . .Bohjalian is a master, and the slow-mounting dread makes this a frightful ride.' --Publishers Weekly

'A page-turner of uncommon depth. Guilt, egotism, and fear all play parts in this genre-bending novel.' --Booklist

'Compelling. . .a practical magick horror story'
--Kirkus Review

'Chris Bohjalian's powerful novel grips like a vice from first to last.' --Sally Cousins, The Sunday Telegraph, November 20, 2011

'From its opening page, Bohjalian's story grabs you like a disembodied hand coming out of a black night and doesn't stop shaking.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Stephen King reshaped the folksy stories of Jane Hamilton, this is your book' --The Daily Mail
