This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a dark, dizzying domestic thriller steeped in menace and mistrust. Recommended for fans of Gillian Flynn, Ashley Audrain, and Riley Sager.


Stage’s latest (after The Girl Who Outgrew the World) feels like a nice bookend to her Bram Stoker Award–nominated debut novel, Baby Teeth, an LJ Best Book of 2018. A great choice for fans of intense psychological horror where nothing can be trusted and no one can look away from the emerging nightmare, such as in Now You’re One of Us by Asa Nonami or The Unsuitable by Molly Pohlig.


An essential library purchase. Recommend to fans of survival stories and thrillers set in remote wilderness.


Reminiscent of the severe disorientation and trauma in Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves and the nature-seeking revenge theme of Stephen Graham Jones’s The Only Good Indians—with elements of and nods to Shirley Jackson’s works

Baby Teeth

This twisty first novel has been aptly compared to The Omen and Lionel Shiver's We Need To Talk About Kevin, which is especially apparent in Stage's exploration of the dark side of modern motherhood. A first purchase where suspenseful and offbeat psychological thrillers circulate well.
