Bad Things, Paperback


The new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Straw Men and The Intruders.

A heart-stopping tale of secrets, lies and our culpability in our own misfortunes.

On a beautiful summer's afternoon four-year-old Scott Henderson walked out onto a jetty over a lake in Black Ridge, Washington State.

He never came back. John Henderson's world ended that day, but three years later he's still alive.

Living a life, of sorts. Getting by. Until one night he receives an email from a stranger who claims to know what happened to his little boy.

Against his better judgement Henderson returns to Black Ridge, unleashing a terrifying sequence of events that threatens to destroy what remains of everything he once held dear.

Bad things don't just happen to other people - they're waiting round the corner for you too. And when they start to make their way in through the cracks in your life, you won't know until it's far too late...
