Product description

Review

“The latest novel from Canadian author Pyper is an ambitious excursion into Stephen King territory. . . . With a well-executed narrative, both past . . . and present, strong characterization and some truly arresting images, The Guardians is a compelling and genuinely creepy read.”
The Guardian (UK)

"Everything you could ask for in a thriller. It's psychologically unnerving, moves like a bullet, and is fraught with so much tension you might crack a tooth reading it. Outstanding in every way."
– Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

 
"Pyper reveals his skill with pacing as the story takes on the speed of midnight dash through a graveyard. And please note: This is not schlock horror dripping with gore. Pyper expertly creates terror through mood and setting. We hear what keeps going bump in the night, but never quite see it."
— The Globe and Mail

"A splendidly eerie haunted house story, and a superb evocation of small town life. The Guardians gripped me from its opening line and never let go."
– John Connolly, author of Every Dead Thing and The Lovers

“A perfect haunted-house story, a crisp, eerie October night of a book that had me in its clutches from page one."
– Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat 

“So much more than a thriller. Truly great writing, haunting, intelligent, human, terrifying. Pyper is a genius.”
– Deon Meyer, author of Thirteen Hours

"A master of psychological suspense at its spine-tingling best, Andrew Pyper knows just how to lure you in to all the deep, dark places of the human heart, and then, twist."
– Lisa Gardner, author of The Neighbor

“A dark, brooding, compelling story about the loss of innocence and the ubiquity of evil, with a finalé as bittersweet as your fiftieth birthday party.”
The Times (UK)

"Beautifully written...The characters are drawn with extraordinary skill."
— de Volkskrant (Netherlands)

"Pyper is the most striking Canadian crime writer to emerge in recent years and The Guardians is a characteristically intelligent move into Stephen King territory."
 Mail on Sunday (UK)
