From the Back Cover:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Intruders and The Straw Men comes a nerve-shattering story of guilt, secrets, and very, very . . . bad things

On a beautiful summer afternoon, John Henderson watched his four-year-old son, Scott, tumble from a jetty into the lake outside their Black Ridge, Washington, home. In an instant, Scott Henderson had simply, inexplicably . . . died.

Three years later, John is a different man—divorced, living a solitary existence in a beach house in Oregon. Then one night he receives a disturbing e-mail message from a stranger. It reads: I know what happened.

It's enough to pull him back to Black Ridge—the one place on earth he'd hoped never to return to, unwittingly unleashing a terrifying sequence of events that threatens to destroy what remains of everything he once held dear.

A relentlessly thrilling novel of psychological suspense, Michael Marshall's Bad Things is a masterwork of chill-inducing brilliance that will keep the reader guessing right through to the final page.
