Description

"An unnerving and suspenseful novel, House. Tree. Person. is McPherson's best yet."--Karin Slaughter, New York Times and international bestselling author



The body found in a muddy grave across the street is just the latest horror threatening to tear Ali McGovern's life apart seam by seam. She knows Angelo, her brooding teenage son, is keeping secrets. She fears he's in danger, too. But her new job at the psychiatric hospital, the job her husband pushed her into, is using up everything she's got every day. She can try to ignore the sounds that surely can't really be there. And she can try to trust the doctors, who can't be as dark as they seem. But can Ali hold herself, her life, and her family together without getting blood on her hands?



Praise:



"McPherson is a master of creating psychological tension and doubts about the motives of her characters...The clever way McPherson reveals each hint of the truth makes this a one-sitting read."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)



"McPherson keeps the suspense level high."--Publishers Weekly



"[An] intricate, deeply claustrophobic story."--Entertainment Weekly in an "A" review



"A body unearthed by rains on the abbey grounds further pulls Ali's family into the dark mystery...and draws Ali to the brink of her own sanity. This is Scottish author McPherson's sixth stand-alone novel. She's been a finalist for both the Agatha Christie and Mary Higgins Clark award. No wonder."--Star Tribune
