Short Synopsis
From the bestselling horror author of Within These Walls and The Bird Eater comes a compelling novel that follows a teenager determined to break from his family's unconventional—and deeply disturbing—traditions.

Full Synopsis
Deep in the heart of Appalachia stands a crooked farmhouse miles from any road. The Morrows keep to themselves, and it's served them well so far. When girls go missing off the side of the highway, the cops don't knock on their door. Which is a good thing, seeing what's buried in the Morrows' backyard.

But nineteen-year-old Michael Morrow isn't like the rest of his family. He doesn't take pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees. Michael pines for normalcy, and he's sure that someday he'll see the world beyond West Virginia. When he meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop in the small nearby town of Dahlia, he's immediately smitten. For a moment, he nearly forgets about the monster he's become. But his brother, Rebel, is all too eager to remind Michael of his place . . .

"This riveting experience was further enhanced by the absolute perfect narration provided by Paul Boehmer." ---AudioBook Reviewer

"This relentlessly grim tale is most definitely not for the squeamish, but it's nearly impossible to put down." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review
