One by one, three young girls vanish in a small town in upstate New York. With the first disappearance, the townspeople begin to mistrust outsiders. When the second girl goes missing, neighbors and childhood friends start to eye each other warily. And with the third disappearance, the sleepy little town awakens to a full-blown nightmare. The Church of Dead Girls displays Stephen Dobyns’ remarkable gifts for exploring human nature, probing the ruinous effects of suspicion. As panic mounts and citizens take the law into their own hands, no one is immune, and old rumors, old angers, and old hungers come to the surface to reveal the secret history of a seemingly genteel town and the dark impulses of its inhabitants.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Church of Dead Girls is a meditation on hysteria, immensely ambitious…terrifying climax. I don’t expect to read a more frightening novel this year. Very rich, very scary, very satisfying.” Stephen King
"The Church of Dead Girls is that rare thing—a genuine thriller that transcends its genre. You’ll read it with equal parts curiosity, dread, and wonder.” Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Empire Falls
“A chilling evocation of small-town life turned upside down. Dobyns delivers the goods.” San Francisco Chronicle
