Synopsis: Greetings. There is a body buried on your property, covered in your blood. The unfortunate young lady's name is Rita Jones. In her jeans pocket you'll find a slip of paper with a phone number on it. Call that number. If I have not heard from you by 8:00 P.M., the police will receive an anonymous call. I'll tell them where Rita Jones is buried on your property, how you killed her, and where the murder weapon can be found in your house. (I do believe a paring knife is missing from your kitchen.) I strongly advise against going to the police, as I am always watching you.

Dear Reader: Please keep the light on tonight. What happens next will scare you. Guaranteed.

In one of the most chilling debuts of the year, Blake Crouch tells a tale that shatters the boundaries of fear. Caution: You've Been Warned--Read at Your Own Risk!

Andrew Z. Thomas is a successful writer of suspense thrillers, living the dream at his lake house in the piedmont of North Carolina. One afternoon in late spring, he receives a bizarre letter that eventually threatens his career, his sanity, and the lives of everyone he loves. A murderer is designing his future, and for the life of him, Andrew can't get away.

An edge-of-your-seat thriller, Desert Places introduces the American public to a new suspense writer who will be scaring us all for years to come.

From the Back Cover: Caution: You've Been Warned-Read At Your Own Risk!

One tranquil May evening in North Carolina, semi-famous novelist Andrew Thomas strolls down his long gravel drive to check his mailbox. Inside is a note:

"Greetings. There is a body buried on your property, covered in your blood. The unfortunate young lady's name is Rita Jones. In her jeans pocket, you'll find a slip of paper with a phone number on it. You have one day to call that number. If I have not heard from you by 8 P.M. tomorrow, the police department will receive an anonymous phone call. I'll tell them where Rita Jones is buried, how you killed her, and where the murder weapon can be found. (I do believe a paring knife is missing from your kitchen.)"

Andrew Thomas thinks this message is just a mischievous prank. He's wrong-very, very wrong. And soon he's going to be very, very scared.

"Terrific...harrowing...a whacked out combination of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy."--Pat Conroy, author of My Losing Season

"A harrowing, compulsively readable novel." -Gregg Hurwitz, author of The Kill Clause
