Matty Cruz has gone through a lot since she decided to move to Couper, Washington, a tree-filled city nestled on the banks of the Columbia River. When she made that decision, she didn’t realize that the charming town had one of the highest violent-crime rates in the Pacific Northwest.

In the fifth book of the completed Matty Cruz Adventure series, Matty’s friends are worried about her skittish behavior. After all the trauma she’s experienced, she’s begun to see boogeymen everywhere. So when Matty becomes convinced that Sam Bester’s latest mystery trip out of town will lead him into danger, no one takes her seriously. Despite their doubts, she tails him through the forests and towns near Mount Rainier. Of course, it wouldn’t be Matty if she didn’t stop and rescue someone along the way.

At the end of her journey, she must decide how far she’s willing to go to save a man who has lied to her from the start and a troubled teenager who refuses to go home.

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.
