Description

"Sarah Langan is an audaciously terrifying storyteller, and Audrey's Door practically hums with frantic energy and hair-raising tension."
--New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen


Rosemary's Baby meets The Shining behind Audrey's Door--a masterwork of psychological suspense and supernatural terror from the acclaimed author of The Keeper and The Missing. Ramsey Campbell, Matthew Pearl, and David Morrell are among the ever-growing legion of fans of this Bram Stoker Award-winning writer who Peter Straub says, "combines a genuinely poetic sensibility with a taste for horror's most bravura excesses." Reviewers across the country have already compared Sarah Langan to H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King and her brilliantly, chillingly original Audrey's Door solidifies her standing as one of America's most exciting new masters of contemporary dark fantasy.

Back cover copy

Built on the Upper West Side, the elegant Breviary claims a regal history. But despite 14B's astonishingly low rental price, the recent tragedy within its walls has frightened away all potential tenants . . . except for Audrey Lucas.

No stranger to tragedy at thirty-two--a survivor of a fatherless childhood and a mother's hopeless dementia-- Audrey is obsessively determined to make her own way in a city that often strangles the weak. But is it something otherworldly or Audrey's own increasing instability that's to blame for the dark visions that haunt her . . . and for the voice that demands that she build a door? A door it would be true madness to open . . .
