The Night Will Find Us

Matthew Lyons. Turner, $34.99 (326p) ISBN 978-1-68442-541-9
Lyons’s masterful debut takes readers into the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens for a hair-raising adventure. Six friends—Adam, Chloe, Josh, Nate, Nicky, and Parker—embark on a camping trip to celebrate the end of their junior year of high school. The trip is a thinly veiled excuse for Parker to search for his missing father, who vanished into the Barrens earlier in the year. When Nate picks a fight with Parker, who’s grown increasingly unhinged since his father’s disappearance, Parker pulls a gun and shoots him in the head, the first in a series of horrific events. As the teens scramble to understand the tragedy, the forest around them comes alive with a primordial evil fueled by the ghosts of those who have been killed within its confines. Lyons’s prose is electric, transforming a familiar horror setup into a twisty, nightmarish roller coaster replete with scares that will startle even the most jaded horror reader. This shiver-inducing thriller is not for the faint of heart. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, the Seymour Agency. (Oct.)
