In this enthralling and atmospheric thriller, one young family’s dream of a better life is about to become a nightmare.

Ben and Caroline Tierney and their two young boys are hoping to start over. Ben has hit a dead end with his new novel, Caroline has lost her banking job, and eight-year-old Charlie is being bullied at his Manhattan school.

When Ben inherits land in the village of Swannhaven in a remote corner of upstate New York, the Tierneys believe it’s just the break they need, and they leave behind all they know to restore a sprawling estate. But as Ben uncovers Swannhaven’s chilling secrets and Charlie ventures deeper into the surrounding forest, strange things begin to happen. The Tierneys realize that their new home isn’t the fresh start they needed … and that the village’s haunting saga is far from over.

House of Echoes is a novel that shows how sometimes the ties that bind us are the only things that can keep us whole.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Shades of The Shining are spattered through Brendan Duffy’s debut novel—a large isolated house, a young family, nutty and somewhat supernatural goings-on, but House of Echoes grounds itself in different ways for an enjoyable read.”

    USA Today

  • “An exquisite novel…expertly plotted, beautifully written…It’s complex, deft, and, once you dive in, you want to stay in this often-scary world…This is a book that deserves to be savored.”

    Star-Ledger (Newark)

  • “A riveting blend of horror and family drama. The remote location, creepy townspeople, and the village’s savage history produce a harrowing tale that keeps readers quickly turning the pages. As this complex family struggles with mental illness and their child’s isolation, their redemption comes in the revelation that they can survive anything together.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)

  • “Duffy walks a fine line between crime and horror, skillfully manipulating the threats of a punishing winter, creepy historic setting, and strange villagers…This unsettling, atmospheric tale is right up the alley of those who enjoyed Jennifer McMahon’s Winter People; and the shared appeal with Stephen King’s The Shining is undeniable.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “A fluid, suspenseful yet subtle thriller, with touches of humor, evocative writing, and characters that are both familiar and uniquely fascinating. A wonderfully tense and heart-wrenching debut.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Narrator Allyson Ryan superbly portrays the female protagonist. Speaking as a voice from the past, she adds a haunting sound to the tension of the narrative. As the overall narrator, George Newbern has a much larger part…He delivers a tension-packed reading.”
