About this title

Synopsis:

A blazingly original electrifying mystery of love and loss from the haunted imagination of Amelia Gray.

In the dead of winter, David, a retired dentist in an unnamed town in Ohio, is pretty sure his wife, Franny, is dead. But he can't quite figure out what killed her or why she had to die. Disoriented by grief, David struggles to unravel these mysteries--which become increasingly baffling when he starts finding a series of elaborate and escalating threats hidden around his home.

--I will gather your oldest friends at my home and we will have a conversation. you will hear us talking but when you come into the room we will stop talking.--

Who left these notes? Was someone out to get Franny? Are they coming for him?

--I will staple my address to your winter coat, little one. they will send you to me no matter what you claim.--

Unfortunately for David, Detective Chico is also on the case and is intent on asking him questions that he doesn't know the answers to and introducing him to people--including a therapist who is practicing dream analysis in David's garage without his knowledge or consent--who don't appear to have David's best interests in mind. With no one to trust, David is forced to rely on his own memories and faculties, but they, too, are proving unreliable.

--Curl up on my lap. let me brush your hair with my fingers. i am singing you a lullaby. I am testing for structural weakness in your skull.--

Full of psychological twists and turns, Threats beautifully balances moments of utter bewilderment and perfect clarity. Amelia Gray builds a world that is eerie yet familiar, violent yet tender. With ability and precision far beyond her years, Gray grabs you on the first page and never loosens her grip.

From the Inside Flap:

David's wife is dead. At least, he thinks she's dead. But he can't figure out what killed her or why she had to die, and his efforts to sort out what's happened have been interrupted by his discovery of a series of elaborate and escalating threats hidden in strange places around his home―one buried in the sugar bag, another carved into the side of his television. These disturbing threats may be the best clues to his wife's death:

CURL UP ON MY LAP. LET ME BRUSH YOUR HAIR WITH MY FINGERS. I AM SINGING YOU A LULLABY. I AM TESTING FOR STRUCTURAL WEAKNESS IN YOUR SKULL.

Detective Chico is also on the case, and is intent on asking David questions he doesn't know the answers to and introducing him to people who don't appear to have David's or his wife's best interests in mind. With no one to trust, David is forced to rely on his own memories and faculties―but they too are proving unreliable.

In THREATS, Amelia Gray builds a world that is bizarre yet familiar, violent yet tender. It is an electrifying story of love and loss that grabs you on the first page and never loosens its grip.
