Description

Arlen Wagner has seen it in men before--a trace of smoke in their eyes that promises imminent death. He is never wrong.
So when he awakens on a train one hot Florida night and sees death's telltale sign in the eyes of his fellow passengers, he abandons the train with nineteen-year-old Paul Brickhill. Soon the two men are stranded at the Cypress House--directly in the path of a hurricane. But there are much deadlier threats than the storm in this place, and Arlen's eerie gift warns that they'll never leave. From its chilling beginning to terrifying end, "The Cypress House "is a story of relentless suspense from the novelist Michael Connelly calls "one of the best of the best."
