Donna doesn’t know the old man with the sad face and yet there she is, beating him to death with a shovel. Is suppressed rage making her murder people in horrifying ways, or is she some sort of latent psychopath? She dreams of killing another man, and then another. The more people she kills, the more desperate she becomes to stop herself. Can she find the key and stop herself before she commits yet another gruesome murder? 


“I Do Terrible Things is a symphony of extreme horror. Goodrich masterfully draws the reader in and relentlessly turns the screws. Like a repeating melody, each chapter broadens and deepens the main character’s profound but subtle descent into madness and violence. By the time I had reached the grand guignol finale I felt as trapped in the tale as she did.” - Stephen Kozeniewsk, author of Braineater Jones

“John Goodrich will appeal to fans of Laird Barron, Mary SanGiovanni, and Peter Straub.” - Brian Keene

“What happened to the quiet and unassuming man I thought I knew? Something demented is brimming, hidden behind an unassuming, innocent smile that freezes into a rictus just below the surface. He’s serving up a seriously demented murder-rama thrillfest with a healthy dose of splatter. Death in the most insidious ways seem to fill every page. The pace, at times maddening, is handled skillfully, almost to the point of pain just before that wonderful release. I only hope someone this devastatingly disturbed is chained safely in his basement, his computer the only light.” - Monica O’Rourke, author of Suffer the Flesh

“John Goodrich’s new novel, I Do Terrible Things, proves his debut, Hag, was no fluke. Beginning with a terrifying and surreal premise, this story of a woman who’s a reluctant, but vicious killer in her dreams ramps up into a thrilling search for the truth that ends in a way that’d make the Greek tragedians wince. Trust me, once you start this one, you aren’t going to want to sleep until it’s finished.” - Bracken MacLeod, author of Come to Dust and 13 Views of the Suicide Woods

“Some of us don't get a 'cult fiction' sense from our reads very often, but you're likely to find it in John Goodrich. I Do Terrible Things offers up a meaty mix of Charles Willeford, John Skipp, and even Patricia Highsmith, all culminating into a nightmare of paranoia and crime that noir and horror fanatics will love. The results are unsettling, and at best, you'll be left with a sense of displacement that even your doctor will only be able to shrug at. Get on this book.” - Larissa Glasser, author of F4

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
