Product description


"Truly frightening" - Fashionista Piranha

"Very rewarding." - Popcorn Reads

"While the story shares some DNA with the classic movie Poltergeist, Newman has his own story to tell, in his own way, and he has some fine surprises in store for his unsuspecting readers. Nicely done." - Booklist

"Kim Newman gets inside your head like pollen off a field of wildflowers; the pleasant idyllic turns full of suffocating dread. Thoroughly enjoyable, master storytelling." - Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of The Shining Girls

"Some very good surprises in store for his unsuspecting readers. Nicely done." - Booklist
