An all-new epic tale of terror and redemption set in the hinterlands of midcentury New Mexico from the acclaimed author of The Troop—which Stephen King raved “scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t put it down…old-school horror at its best.” From electrifying horror author Nick Cutter comes a haunting new novel, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian and Stephen King’s It, in which a trio of mismatched mercenaries is hired by a young woman for a deceptively simple task: check in on her nephew, who may have been taken against his will to a remote New Mexico backwoods settlement called Little Heaven. Shortly after they arrive, things begin to turn ominous. Stirrings in the woods and over the treetops—the brooding shape of a monolith known as the Black Rock casts its terrible pall. Paranoia and distrust grips the settlement. The escape routes are gradually cut off as events spiral towards madness. Hell—or the closest thing to it—invades Little Heaven. The remaining occupants are forced to take a stand and fight back, but whatever has cast its dark eye on Little Heaven is now marshaling its powers…and it wants them all.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Corey Brill’s narration embraces every aspect of this story…His calm narration amplifies the gory details of the narrative, and he illuminates each character’s motives and emotional depth with subtle vocal shading and inflection. Though not for the faint of heart, Brill’s hushed descriptions cast a spell that lingers long after the story has drawn to a close.” AudioFile
“Terrifying… exceptionally well-written and gripping…Deeply, deeply unsettling, as it’s meant to be.” Toronto Star
“For all horror fans, this is the latest—maybe greatest—novel to come from the mind of the frightening Nick Cutter to date…portraying images, as always, that stay in your mind and stop calm, peaceful sleep from coming.” Suspense Magazine
“Drips with dread from the very first lines. With its claustrophobic, isolated setting, gory details, and strong action sequences, this book is sure to win over horror fans, but there is also a powerful underlying philosophical aspect here, which ponders the meaning of family, love, and community.” Booklist (starred review)
