Reviews

"A heady, page-turning, all-too-relevant reinvention of the return-to-home horror story--truly gut-wrenching and frightening."--Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers Club

"Real horror surrounds us in plain sight, nestled in the hearts of fiends who hide behind the barest of masks. Erin E. Adams takes you on a breathless ride with Jackal, revealing the courage it takes to stand up to monsters."--Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor and The Hunger

"A thrilling blend of detective story, turn-all-the-lights-on-in-your-house-while-reading horror, and social commentary about how often women of color, especially Black women, go missing and get little attention . . . It's an impressive and thoughtful debut."--Megan Giddings, author of The Women Could Fly

"Jackal is both a gripping thriller about missing girls and the dangers lurking in the woods, and a searing and brilliant dissection of what it means to be the 'only one' in a small town and a Black woman in the United States of America. Liz Rocher will stay with me for a long time."--Stephanie Feldman, author of Saturnalia

"Vicious, sharp, and inventive--Jackal grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. Erin E. Adams lures readers deep into the woods with electric prose and then cuts through the dark with a monstrous and haunting tale."--Deb Rogers, author of Florida Woman

"Jackal is a visceral, poetic read of mythic proportions. Adams's no-holds-barred mysterious plunge into the shadows is both tender and thrilling, buoyed by her incandescent prose and an unforgettable hero. Don't miss it."--Meredith Hambrock, author of Other People's Secrets

"This book will raise your blood pressure. It's a searing and achingly raw exploration of what it means to be Black in white spaces, of the contortionist act we are required to perform, the innocence stolen, and the monsters among us, all wrapped up in a suspenseful thriller that will fill you with rage and leave you trusting no one. Adams has created a masterpiece that will keep your neck firmly beneath its foot long after its final word."--Lane Clarke, author of Love Times Infinity

"[A] stellar debut . . .an unforgettable gut punch of a horror thriller . . . This novel is a masterful and emotionally wrenching gem of Black storytelling."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Harrowing horror with a side of searing social commentary . . . Plentiful twists, keenly rendered characters, and atmospheric prose keep the pages turning."--Kirkus Reviews
