In the gritty seventies, a young cop digs up dirt on the New York Police Department

Detective Victoria has never been shy about robbing heroin addicts. He loves the looks on their faces when he kicks down their doors and finds them with needles hanging out of their arms, their highs gone in an instant. After seventeen years on the force, Victoria has no delusions about being an honest cop. And that makes him a perfect bagman for Tommy Doyle.

Doyle is the New York Police Department’s chief of detectives, the top dog in a very dirty bunch. To young Bobby Porterfield—who’s deeply in love with Doyle’s daughter, Cathy—the old man is a legend. But as Porterfield is drawn deeper into the dark side of the department, he finds that justice is never black and white. And when Doyle’s top men begin to die, Porterfield fears he may be next.

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.
