Product Details


“Marvelous. The storytelling is quick, well plotted and engrossing.” – The New York Times

“Hair-raising horror and pure entertainment…The tension and nuance of Harrison’s complicated female friendships add depth to an already delicious, chilling debut.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“The Return is supernatural horror at its very best! Sharp dialogue, complex relationships and mind-bending action will have readers locking their doors and checking under their beds. Rachel Harrison has reinvented this genre and will surely be hailed as a pioneer among her peers.”—Wendy Walker, National Bestselling Author of The Night Before
“Combining suspense and horror with razor-sharp insights into the nature of female friendships, Rachel Harrison’s The Return is a creepy, nerve-wracking, page-turning addition to the emerging field of horror thrillers.”—Alma Katsu, Author of The Deep and The Hunger

“By turns scary and funny, horrifying and real, The Return is impossible to put down. It takes an honest, scathing look at female friendship while at the same time pulling the reader into a perfect nightmare of a story.”–Simone St. James, USA Today bestselling author of The Sun Down Motel
The Return is moving and terrifying in equal measure. A brilliant rumination on friendship, pain, and the myriad of unsuccessful ways we all try to run from our past and fill the holes in our hearts. Harrison’s keen prose won’t let you go. Be warned, you’ll double check the locks on your doors before you try to sleep.”—Mallory O’Meara, National bestselling author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon
“A sharp, refreshing book about the mortifying ordeal of being known. This is a book that understands how terrifying a lasting friendship can truly be; Harrison brilliantly highlights the way friendships can tether a person to their worst memories, their worst selves, and their worst nightmares.”—Sarah Gailey, National bestselling author of Magic for Liars 

“Harrison’s The Return expertly treads the fine line between thriller and horror. It’s as deliciously creepy as opening up a box of candy-coated spiders—and eating them all in one sitting.“–Christina Dalcher, author of Vox
