Description

Everyone knows the story of the girl from widow hills...

When Arden Maynor was six years old, she was swept away in a terrifying storm and went missing for days. Against all odds, she was found alive, clinging to a storm drain. Fame followed, and so did fans, creeps and stalkers. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and left Widow Hills behind.

Twenty years later, Olivia, as she is now known, is plagued by night terrors. She often finds herself out of bed in the middle of the night, sometimes streets away from her home. Then one evening she jolts awake in her yard, with the corpse of a man at her feet.

The girl from Widow Hills is about to become the centre of the story, once again...

Review quote

An unnerving and extremely classy thriller. * Observer * Sometimes you come across a thriller which stands out. This is one. This intelligent pacy read is a different take on the "missing girl scenario" with characters who aren't always what they seem. You might not get a good night's sleep again - especially if you're prone to go walkabout in the night. * Jane Corry, author of My Husband's Wife * With Hitchcockian flair, Megan Miranda shrewdly examines what becomes of the people at the center of those rare, sensational news stories that capture the nation's attention. The Girl from Widow Hills gave me the creeps in the best way possible. * Chandler Baker, author of Whisper Network * A hauntingly atmospheric and gorgeously written page-turner, The Girl from Widow Hills is a deeply thought-provoking, riveting mystery about the complex weight of history and the dangerous power of the lies we tell ourselves. * Kimberly McCreight, author of Reconstructing Amelia * Sleepwalking is creepy. You're asleep, but you're walking through the night - like the living dead. I knew when I started The Girl from Widow Hills I was in for some shivers. But I had no idea the terrors that were in store. * R. L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street * Miranda flaunt[s] her considerable talent for jaw-dropping, yet believable, twists. Even jaded readers might not see this one coming. An unusual heroine anchors this creepy, fast-paced chiller. This is Miranda's best book yet. * Kirkus Reviews * Another compulsive page-turner from an accomplished author. * Booklist *
