From newcomer Jordan Crouch and Blake Crouch, author of the Top-10 Kindle-bestsellers Run, Stirred, and Fully Loaded, comes Eerie, a chilling, gothic thriller in the classic tradition of The Shining and The Sixth Sense.
TRAPPED INSIDE A HOUSE
On a crisp autumn evening in 1980, seven-year-old Grant Moreton and his five-year-old sister Paige were nearly killed in a mysterious accident in the Cascade Mountains that left them orphans.
WITH A FRIGHTENING POWER
It's been thirty years since that night. Grant is now a detective with the Seattle Police Department and long estranged from his sister. But his investigation into the bloody past of a high-class prostitute has led right to Paige's door, and what awaits inside is beyond his wildest imagining.
OVER ANYONE WHO ENTERS
His only hope of survival and saving his sister will be to confront the terror that inhabits its walls, but he is completely unprepared to face the truth of what haunts his sister's brownstone.
This 65,000-word novel also contains a bonus interview with Blake and Jordan.

NEW MYSTERY READER MAGAZINE
ABANDON is terrific…a great storyteller hitting his stride.
Gut wrenching...the writing is tight, the plots exciting, the suspense unending...Crouch tops my list.
Expertly paced and viscerally effective, with many surprises and genuine chills.
Blake Crouch is the most exciting new thriller writer I've read in years.
Harrowing...terrific...a whacked out combination of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy.
Crouch delivers his description of place with vivid prose...his carefully crafted characters make the story immediate, intense and thoroughly believable.
This is a complex, cleverly constructed novel of motive, and Crouch takes his time bringing us through the story...a great debut. Crouch is an author to watch.
