Description

Selected by Library Journal as one of the best horror books of 2019

"The sheer, skin-crawling fright is masterful. Thomas has crafted an indelible story...all wrapped in a supernatural shroud that unfurls from the heart of America. Whether or not thoughts can breathe, books certainly can, and Violet does exactly that." --Jason Heller, National Public Radio

"Don't let anybody tell you this book is a slow burn--Violet travels at the speed of horror." --Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box

For many children, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and laughter. But for ten-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother.

Three decades later, loss returns--her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to the place where she first knew pain--to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake. It's there that Kris and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief.

But a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown--and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return.
