The Last House on Needless Street

"I've read it and was blown away. It's a true nerve-shredder that keeps its mind-blowing secrets to the very end." —Stephen King

In a boarded-up house at the end of the street is a family that hides away: a father, who fears everything. A daughter, raging and childish. A cat, Bible-reading and self-possessed. They barely go outside.

At the seaside nearby, years ago, there was a disappearance: a young girl, now survived only by her sister, who searches, and searches, and searches.

The answers to both of these stories are entwined. But they are not expected.

Catriona Ward was born in Washington, DC and grew up in the United States, Kenya, Madagascar, Yemen, and Morocco. She studied English at Oxford and later the Creative Writing Masters at the University of East Anglia. She won the August Derleth Award for Best Horror Novel for her debut, The Girl from Rawblood, and again for Little Eve, making her the first woman to win the prize twice. Little Eve also won the Shirley Jackson Award for Best Novel, and is published by Nightfire.

Moderator Joe Hill is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Full ThrottleStrange Weather, and The Fireman.
