Product description

Review

"[An] artful and elegiac psychological thriller . . . The author wields words like weapons, with each one chosen to heighten tension, underscore emotion, or foreshadow doom. . . . [Julia] Heaberlin brilliantly combines travelogue with a heartbreaking portrait of the damage done by childhood."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Paper Ghosts is an exceptional read, with a deftly woven plot--a book to devour in one sitting. This is breathless storytelling at its very best, with a deeply satisfying ending that will give book groups--and all your friends, when you recommend it--much to discuss."--Elizabeth Haynes, New York Times bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner

"This book haunted me. The writing is beautiful and chilling, laced with a subtle dark humor, and the multiple twists build to a perfect icy shiver of an ending. I loved it!"--C. J. Tudor, author of The Chalk Man

"Paper Ghosts is a stunner: a creepy, complicated thriller that crawls under your skin from the outset and burrows deeper with every page; the kind of 'there's no way this is going to end well' story in which you know that what the character is doing is a very, very bad idea but you can't look away. It's a chilling, nuanced, just-one-more-page novel from a master of psychological suspense. Highly recommended!"--Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King's Daughter

"With prose as sharp and flinty as the book's protagonist, Paper Ghosts takes a deep dive into the murky well of moral ambiguity, as one woman's obsession with her missing sister collides with a serial killer's dementia over the course of a thrill-packed road trip deep into the heart of Texas. This novel brilliantly asks you to question everything you see (and don't see) around you."--Nina Sadowsky, author of Just Fall and The Burial Society

"The heroine of Paper Ghosts cons a suspected serial killer claiming dementia into joining her on a road trip, in the hope of triggering his memories--and confessions--of what happened to several missing women. Their journey hurtles through Heaberlin's vivid Texas toward a surprising and satisfying conclusion, guided by clues in enigmatic photographs. The trip is engrossing, tense, and tightly written, with a luminous sense of place."--Emily Winslow, author of the Keene and Frohmann mysteries

"Paper Ghosts is the spellbinding, brilliantly original story of a young woman desperate to find her missing sister and the man who she suspects knows the truth, joined together on a perilous journey as elusive and mysterious as the paper ghosts that lure them. Julia Heaberlin's love for Texas spills across every page."--Carla Buckley, author of The Good Goodbye
