Praise for The Return:

The Return expertly treads the fine line between thriller and horror. It’s as deliciously creepy as opening up a box of candy-coated spiders-and eating them all in one sitting’
Christina Dalcher, bestselling author of Vox

‘Combining suspense and horror with razor-sharp insights into the nature of female friendships, Rachel Harrison’s The Return is a creepy, nerve-wracking, page-turning addition to the emerging field of horror thrillers’
Alma Katsu, award-winning author of The Hunger

The Return is moving and terrifying in equal measure. A brilliant rumination on friendship, pain, and the myriad of unsuccessful ways we all try to run from our past and fill the holes in our hearts. Harrison’s keen prose won’t let you go. Be warned, you’ll double check the locks on your doors before you try to sleep’
Mallory O’Meara, author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon

‘By turns scary and funnyhorrifying and realThe Return is impossible to put down. It takes an honest, scathing look at female friendship while at the same time pulling the reader into a perfect nightmare of a story
Simone St. James, bestselling author of The Sun Down Motel

The Return is supernatural horror at its very best! Sharp dialogue, complex relationships and mind-bending action will have readers locking their doors and checking under their beds. Rachel Harrison has reinvented this genre and will surely be hailed as a pioneer among her peers’
Wendy Walker, bestselling author of The Night Before

Hair-raising horror and pure entertainment in Harrison’s compulsively readable debut . . . The tension and nuance of Harrison’s complicated female friendships add depth to an already delicious, chilling debut
