Such a Quiet Place – Fascinating horror novel
Megan Miranda, the bestselling author of THE LAST HOUSE GUEST and other acclaimed thrillers, brings the chills right to her readers’ backyards with SUCH A QUIET PLACE, a story of murder and betrayal in a not-so-quiet neighborhood. The novel reveals a side of suburbia that is rife with domestic rivalries and jealousies, simmering resentments and secret affairs. An unspeakable horror is unfolding in a seemingly ordinary town, and no one will believe the facts when they are revealed…
When teenage sisters June and May Clark move to Maplecroft, their mother is still coming to terms with being abandoned by their father. Their new house—which once belonged to the Beardsleys—comes with an unsolved murder on the property, but the girls can’t resist exploring it. Soon enough, they’re getting terrorized by sounds from behind a wall that seems to have eyes on it—and only June can see them. It’s not just an echo of the past. It’s a warning.
For years, May has been the quintessential good girl—but something is changing. She’s having nightmares, and waking up covered in blood. When she discovers the secret of the wall, will she be able to ignore it?
It’s a terrifying experience, whatever the explanation. And no one else might believe her either.
But when another body is discovered, an even more chilling game is being played in Maplecroft. Someone is taking lives in the night—and no one can stop them until they’re stopped…
“Such a QUIET PLACE is as suspenseful and chilling as THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, and just as hard to put down. It’s got it all—tense domestic dramas, chilling supernatural elements, terrifying family secrets, and a nail-biting tale of a serial killer preying on suburban families. I loved it!” —Bret Easton Ellis
“With her latest book Megan Miranda has become my new favorite writer. Such a QUIET PLACE is the perfect combination of gothic thriller and psychological suspense.
