In his latest soul-chilling novel, bestselling author Peter Straub tells of a famous children’s book author who, in the wake of a grotesque accident, realizes that the most basic facts of her existence, including her existence itself, have come into question.

Willy Patrick, the respected author of the award-winning young-adult novel In the Night Room, thinks she is losing her mind–again. One day, she is drawn helplessly into the parking lot of a warehouse. She knows somehow that her daughter, Holly, is being held in the building, and she has an overwhelming need to rescue her. But what Willy knows is impossible, for her daughter is dead. On the same day, author Timothy Underhill, who has been struggling with a new book about a troubled young woman, is confronted with the ghost of his nine-year-old sister, April. Soon after, he begins to receive eerie, fragmented e-mails that he finally realizes are from people he knew in his youth–people now dead. Like his sister, they want urgently to tell him something. When Willy and Timothy meet, the frightening parallels between Willy’s tragic loss and the story in Tim’s manuscript suggest that they must join forces to confront the evils surrounding them.

    " Story within a story within a story. When I began the book, I thought, I prefer lost boy, lost girl. Toward the middle, I thought, how could I ever prefer lost boy, lost girl over this? At the end, I thought, thank you for Cyrax. "

    " This was mostly excruciating. The premise as something to drive a novel didn't work for me. There were moments in this that worked for me though. The boy detective whose world went gray, the first time we see the angel, email from dead people (which the protagonist started deleting), the old Byzantine guy, and especially the talk with the foster/adoptive mother. But these were all points of light in a drudge for me. So thumbs down overall. "
