A "chilling, riveting, heartbreaking" (The New York Times Book Review) novel of parental turmoil
The charm of acclaimed fiction writer Matt Haig's previous novels, The Dead Fathers Club and The Labrador Pact, gives way to terrifying psychological suspense in his unforgettable third novel. The story of a man who, after the tragic loss of his wife and son, must compulsively "protect" his teenager daughter from harm, The Possession of Mr. Cave is a chilling investigation into the relationship between adults and teenagers-and a captivating, tautly paced story that chronicles one man's descent into madness.
Matt Haig’s writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Sydney Morning Herald. The Dead Fathers Club is his American debut. He lives in Leeds, England.
