Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened or the consequences will be too terrible to bear. The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into dark, medieval practices of the distant past. This chilling novel heralds the arrival of an exciting new voice in mainstream horror and dark fantasy.

Every town has an attraction-a reason to visit and not just drive on through. For Barrington County, the June 1595 hunt and subsequent burning of the murderous witch, Willow Kellar, is what has provided the quaint little town centuries of notoriety, especially since Willow hexed the town just as she died, and promised that the families responsible would all die bloody, horrible deaths, eventually. The continually looming hex, now a famous legend, is strategically used to attract tourists to Barrington County's annual Harvest Festival. People from all over are drawn to visit the historic site of the Kellar burning. For Nathalie, Dean, Luke, and Sadie, four Barrington teenagers, this is nothing new. They anticipate a normal and wonderful summer with the upcoming festival, especially since love is in the air. Then strange things start to happen. It turns out the summer won't be normal after all, because sometimes, legends come true.

A recovering alcoholic who is fanatical in her love for animals and her misanthropic friends, Ruby lives above a furniture store and works at the musty Coney Island Museum. One day, Ruby is on the subway heading into Manhattan when the train stalls between stations. An elegant blond woman with a scarred face strikes up a conversation, and a misunderstanding between the two women leads to an offer Ruby decides she can’t refuse. The woman needs her boyfriend followed, and she thinks Ruby is the woman to do it—and do it right. Ruby’s life has been flat and painful lately. The Coney Island Museum isn’t doing much business, Ruby’s live-in boyfriend has moved out, and her best friend Oliver is battling cancer. Ruby agrees to follow the woman’s boyfriend, Frank, a man who works at Belmont Racetrack and seems to hang out in odd places with bad company. Ruby soon finds herself pushed headfirst into horse racing’s seamy underbelly. This is a dangerous world where nothing is as it appears, and people and horses seem to have limited life spans. When Ruby finds herself staring down the barrel of a loaded gun, she begins to have second thoughts. Only now it’s far too late. From the Trade Paperback edition.
