Praise for Middle of the Night

“Full of tension, urgency, atmosphere, and feeling—this is Riley Sager at his very best.”
–Lee Child, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“Ethan Marsh has returned to his childhood home 30 years after his best friend, Billy, disappeared from their backyard, and some seriously strange things are afoot. The vibe is a classic summer coming-of-age story with a page-turning side of paranormal activity.” 
–PEOPLE, “Most-Anticipated Summer Books”

“A thriller with a touch of the supernatural, Sager’s suspenseful mystery is gripping, unsettling, and for some fans, takes a deeper dive into emotional conflict and trauma than in his previous novels.”
–Huffington Post
“If there’s one book that will be on BookTok shelves in 2024, it’s Middle of the Night.
–Refinery 29

“Sager’s thriller is packed with the author’s trademark psychological suspense and one big “Oh my!” moment.”
Star Tribune

“Bestseller Sager expertly doles out chills and pathos in his mesmerizing latest…This standout work of psychological suspense confirms that Sager has few equals when it comes to merging creepiness and compassion.”
Publishers Weekly (starred)

“There are twists aplenty in Sager’s latest. His signature style will leave readers dizzyingly satisfied.”
Library Journal

“[T]his thriller unfolds with a frenetic, almost feverish pace that will keep readers hooked.”

“Sager, author of Final Girls (2017) and Survive the Night (2021)—to name but two of many fine thrillers—has devised a genuinely frightening story and populated it with characters who feel as real as anyone you might encounter in the ‘real world.’ He is a master craftsman, and Middle of the Night is a superlative novel.”

“I’ve read all of Riley Sager’s novels and Middle of the Night is my new favorite. It’s a sweet-and-spooky story about an unsolved mystery, childhood friendships, and things that go bump in the night—with plenty of 90s nostalgia and a twist I never saw coming.  Read it outdoors with a flashlight on a warm summer’s evening—if you dare!” 
—Jason Rekulak, bestselling author of Hidden Pictures

Middle of the Night is Riley Sager at his masterful best—this story is dark, scary, and twisty, but also bittersweet. It’s the secrets that hide in a bucolic neighborhood on a summer night, lingering in the freshly cut grass and the sound of crickets. You will follow these fascinating characters through its brilliantly woven plot all the way to the unexpected, poignant end.”
Simone St. James, New York Times bestselling author of Murder Road

Praise for Riley Sager

“The latest dependable airport bookstore grab and name in summer suspense.”
The Chicago Tribune

“Sager is a master of the twist and the turn.”
Rolling Stone
“[Sager’s novels are] all creepily atmospheric, easy to read without being fluffy, and fun as hell.”

“Suspense master.”
