From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes "a terrifying thrill ride"* of suburban supernatural horror "guaranteed to unnerve the reader" (Publisher's Weekly). Years after the closing of a secret school for gifted children, Julie Hutchinson has terrifying visions that ignite a series of paranormal invasions of her home. Will she -- and her children -- survive the chilling touch of the afterlife?

"Mr Clegg has an ability to create believable, realistic characters...and tighten the suspense and terror as they slowly descend into their own private nightmare...Afterlife is as good as the modern horror novel gets." -- The SF Reader.

*"A terrifying thrill-ride that sits comfortably among horror classics like Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives."-- Shocklines Reviews.

"Stoker-winner Clegg (The Hour Before Dark ) has an uncanny ability to frighten readers by chronicling everyday characters' perilous descents into their own private hells....guaranteed to unnerve the reader...captivating." -- Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review.

For fans of Dean Koontz, Stephen King and Guillermo del Toro.

"Clegg is the best horror writer of the post-Stephen King generation."
-- Bentley Little, USA Today bestselling author of The Haunted and The Mailman.

"Douglas Clegg knows exactly what scares us, and he knows just how to twist those fears into hair-raising chills..." - Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series.
