"(KILL CREEK) establishes Scott Thomas as a force to be reckoned with on the horror scene."
-- Shane D. Keene, HorrorTalk
"The sheer skin-crawling fright is masterful...all wrapped in a supernatural shroud that unfurls from the heart of America."
-- Jason Heller, NPR
"Thomas is a horror novelist who will be camping out on your shelves for years to come."
Not since I read The Shining in eighth grade has a book scared the crap out of me as much as Kill Creek.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
A master class in immersion. Don't let anybody tell you this book is a slow burn - Violet moves at the speed of horror.
JOSH MALERMAN, AUTHOR OF BIRD BOX
I’ve only dared to read it in the daylight.
KALY SOTO, DEPUTY WEEKEND EDITOR, THE NEW YORK TIMES
JOYCE CAROL OATES
Unputdownable nightmare fuel. Some of the most compelling storytelling I've read in a long time.
The Boy in the Woods grabs you by the face. Grim and brutal. Makes me glad I never went to summer camp.
