A vengeful psychopath terrorizes a New England town in this “outstanding psychological thriller” from the New York Times–bestselling author (Booklist, starred review).
 
Liza Plain, a Boston-based journalist hoping for her big break, is dreading spending Christmas in Shiloh, Rhode Island, with her difficult grandfather—until news of the disappearance of a retired local priest triggers her realization that this could be linked to a series of unsolved, church-related, missing persons cases.
 
Michael Rider used to be a decent man with a good life, but a past traumatic event with far-reaching consequences has left him dangerously close to the breaking point. Now he is receiving strange emails from an organization calling itself Whirlwind, offering him the chance to avenge himself on those who’ve done him wrong.
 
Liza and Michael will both be in their hometown of Shiloh on Christmas Eve . . . the night a raging blizzard seals off the town from the outside world . . . the night an outrage is perpetrated. And Liza will find herself at the heart of a major news story, caught in an abyss of nightmarish discovery and life-threatening danger.

Now a Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar and John Malkovich!

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?

Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.
