The town of Stillwater has a very unwelcome resident.

The town of Stillwater has been dying-the long and painful death of a town ravaged by floods and haunted by the ghosts of all who had lived there.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Floating Staircase deserves to stand alongside a Stephen King or a Dean Koontz—at their best."
New York Journal of Books

“Malfi’s use of language and his power of description are sublime.”
—Norman L. Rubenstein, Fear Zone

“Eerie, unpredictable, and exciting. Malfi's lyrical prose and sensitive approach only heighten his tale's emotional impact.”
—Publishers Weekly on Floating Staircase

Publishers Weekly
Malfi (The Floating Staircase) brings a cinematic vividness to this story of a dying small town whose fate manifests as a nightmare of supernatural horror. Stillwater, Md., is in the final throes of its decline as an industrial town when it is plagued by a series of weird incidents: hordes of bats start appearing, several young boys go missing, and townsfolk begin seeing phantoms from their pasts. As police officer Ben Journell investigates, a pattern emerges that suggests something malignant is preying on the public and personal miseries of Stillwater and its citizens. Cross-cutting among the increasingly bizarre experiences of several principal characters, Malfi constructs a panoramic narrative in which the despair of individuals sharpens the sense of horror overwhelming the town. This smartly written novel succeeds as both an allegory of smalltown life and a tale of visceral horror. (Sept.)
