Megan Stokes stood alone in her living room, cradling a cup of coffee in her hands and staring out the large bay window at the corner house across the street.
The whore was outside again, on her knees in the dirt.
Megan watched her for a while, then she lifted the cup to her lips, blew away the ste...

I received a free advance copy of this via NetGalley for review.
I’ve lived in the suburbs for years and despite what books, movies, and TV would have you believe I’ve yet to see any evidence of evil lurking beneath the surface. Except for leaf blowers. Leaf blowers were created by the devil for m...

The Ridge is a creeping, pitch-black window into a suburban America like nothing you’ve ever read. The suspense builds with every sentence and you know something is deeply wrong with this neighborhood, and yet nothing will prepare you for the mind-melting final pages.

John Rector has written a handful of absorbing, propulsive thrillers through the years that moved like roller coasters. The Ridge, his latest, is different, but still engaging. Rector steps away from his usual relentless pacing with this one, maintaining a slow and steady buildup of pa...

A little bit of Stepford Wives around the rim and a bit of Twilight Zone in the glass with a Dark Matter twist, shaken, not stirred to make a delicious, freaky, creepy martini.

Deliciously creepy and freaky. This story will keep you guessing. I was back and forth so much I was starting to feel as off-kilter as our protagonist. Difficult to put down and unnerving, I'd definitely recommend The Ridge.
Cookie-cutter house hell... where every home looks the same, just painte...

This book, at first, reminded me of the book : The Drowning Girls. Where the neighborhood seems perfect but underneath the facade has a lot of secrets. I soon realized though, that this book was quite different!! And I honestly loved the "twist"! It soon becomes apparent that not all is...
