Thomas Jordan, a hardnosed detective from Knoxville, is called in to investigate the disappearance of Kara Lisle, who was abducted from a cabin in the remote backwoods of East Tennessee. As the search begins, local fishermen find the body of Patricia Darby floating in nearby Doe Creek.

 

As Jordan scours Iron Mountain to find Darby’s killer, as well as locate Kara, he finds himself immersed in a world where laws of another kind exist. He discovers a land cold and calloused, its inhabitants untrusting. As the body count rises, he finds the only way to bring the killer to justice is to enlist the services of one of Iron Mountain’s own.

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.

 A war hero's tale isn't always about war

WWII hero Samuel Gable has weeks to live. Eighty-eight years old, his body ravaged by cancer, he’s full of unrest for reasons that have nothing to do with the horrid disease. He has secrets to divulge, and local writer Pete Swift agrees to document what he assumes are a few tales of war. As Samuel recalls perilous days spent in the jungles of the South Pacific, however, Pete begins to live vicariously through Samuel’s stories. A kinship grows as the saga moves from the deadly battlefield to one of the great love stories of all time, as Samuel recalls his love affair with Callie, the dark-haired beauty he fell in love with before being shipped off to war.

Samuel’s stories weave the past and the present, and the reasons for his unrest begin to unfold. Pete comes to learn that Samuel’s son, Caleb, left home abruptly thirty years ago due to a tragic accident that ripped the family apart. Meanwhile, Pete finds himself drawn to Samuel’s daughter, Gabby, who moved back home to take care of her dying father. With Pete, Gabby has a shoulder to cry on and a diversion from the impending death that awaits her father. Their chemistry sets up a passionate collision course that threatens to undermine Samuel and Pete’s relationship, not to mention Pete’s marriage.

Both Samuel and Pete are burdened by situation and circumstance, but for entirely different reasons. Set in a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, these unlikely friends are in a race against time to heal the wounds of their hearts.
