Finding herself amongst a group of survivors, led by the knowledgeable Tom, Malorie soon learns the threat may not only be outside, but, living inside their house. While switching between the past and present, Josh Malerman's debut novel is a thriller from start to finish. Flash forward to five years later, Malorie is desperate to make a twenty mile journey downriver, blindfolded with the four-year olds, boy and girl. Will their wits and trained ears guide them to salvation or will they encounter the horrific threat that has annihilated most of mankind? Extremely creepy...especially if you are afraid of the dark, like myself!”
