Read an Excerpt

From The Call:

"We've had a Call," Nessa cries. "Driver! You have to reverse! Reverse!"

"Two-forty-five," Megan says, watching the murderous second hand. "It's three minutes now!"

That's when the boy returns. Strictly speaking, the famous "Three Minutes" are three minutes and four seconds. Everyone knows this, because many Calls were caught on security cameras in the first terrible year.

The boy's body reappears and thumps down hard onto the floor. Nessa is relieved to see that it's not one of the really awful ones. There's nothing to churn the stomach here, other than a little blood and a set of tiny antlers growing from the back of his head.
