Early readers and authors have heaped The Hollows with praise:
“An exceptional read, I was sucked in from the word go. Fresh and original but with all the hallmarks of a vintage Mark Edwards thriller – a creepy, twisty, shadowy tale that Stephen King would have been proud to have written.” – John Marrs, bestselling author of When You Disappeared and What Lies Between Us
“A really creepy and clever page-turner with a great father/teenage daughter dynamic. Loved it!” – Louise Candlish, Sunday Times bestselling author of Our House
“A brilliant read! So eerily atmospheric. I loved the sense of menace lurking in the woods and the rising tension and fear was truly spine-chilling. Fans of Mark Edwards are definitely in for a page-turning, wonderfully spooky read.” – Karen Hamilton, bestselling author of The Perfect Girlfriend
“The Hollows is an exceptionally creepy page-turner with a brilliantly-handled parent/teenager dynamic at its heart.” – Teresa Driscoll, bestselling author of I Am Watching You
“Loved this nightmare summer-camp holiday story―another pitch-perfect page-turner from Mark Edwards.” – Jane Casey, Sunday Times bestselling author
“This book is perfect if you like spooky mysteries in atmospheric, isolated woods. A proper summer page-turner with a clever sting in the tail.” – Chris Ewan, bestselling author of Safe House
We are excited to introduce you to The Hollows…
With his marriage over and his career in freefall, journalist Tom decides to reconnect with his fourteen-year-old daughter, Frankie. Desperate to spend precious time together now that they live an ocean apart, he brings her to Hollow Falls, a cabin resort deep in the woods of Maine.
From the outset there’s something a little eerie about the place, strange whispers in the trees, windchimes echoing through the forest, but when Tom meets true-crime podcasters David and Connie, he receives a chilling warning. Hollow Falls has a gruesome history: twenty years ago this week, a double slaying shut down the resort.
The crime was never solved, and now the woods are overrun with murder-obsessed tourists looking to mark the grim anniversary.
It’s clear that there’s something deeply disturbing going on at Hollow Falls. And as Tom’s dream trip turns into a nightmare, he and Frankie are faced with a choice: uncover the truth or get out while they still can.
Huge congratulations on this exciting day, Mark. And if readers haven’t ordered their copy yet, you can purchase one here!
