“Sarah Langan is an audaciously terrifying storyteller, and Audrey’s Door practically hums with frantic energy and hair-raising tension.”
—New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen
Rosemary’s Baby meets The Shining behind Audrey’s Door—a masterwork of psychological suspense and supernatural terror from the acclaimed author of The Keeper and The Missing. Ramsey Campbell, Matthew Pearl, and David Morrell are among the ever-growing legion of fans of this Bram Stoker Award-winning writer who Peter Straub says, “combines a genuinely poetic sensibility with a taste for horror’s most bravura excesses.” Reviewers across the country have already compared Sarah Langan to H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King and her brilliantly, chillingly original Audrey’s Door solidifies her standing as one of America’s most exciting new masters of contemporary dark fantasy.
