Publisher Description

Daniel Martin has never forgotten his childhood encounters with Frank Watkins, the man who built his family a summer home out of cardboard and plywood. Frank’s gaze was oddly confusing, as if he was attempting to discern the proper way to behave because he didn’t know how to respond in a human manner. Since Frank obviously wasn’t an alien, young Daniel thought maybe the man was crazy. In the end, Daniel would learn the terrifying truth about Frank Watkins. And as an adult, Daniel is about to discover there are more of them out there.

Quotes

  • “Ciulla conjures a realistic Everyman in Daniel, as both a child and an adult. Daniel’s progression from sorrow to confusion to curiosity feels natural and builds empathy…Ciulla gradually moves Frank from vaguely creepy to aggressively menacing. His retelling of pieces of Frank’s past is disturbingly hair-raising, while the final showdown is cathartically smashing. Don’t listen if house hunting or renovating!”

    - Booklist (audio review)
  • “Little wraps a fascinating supernatural mystery in a suffocating cocoon of horror…Little’s horrifying tale will entice even readers who are not fans of the genre, and stay with them for a long time to come.”
