"This eerie thriller, in which the setting itself may be actively malevolent, can stand next to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Stephen King's The Shining ... Expect shivers and lots of them."
--Booklist (starred)

"Miranda, who makes the setting, where everyone knows one another and ends up fearing one another, all the more chilling for its seeming normality, is a master of misdirection and sudden plot twists, leading up to a wallop of an ending. A powerful, paranoid thriller." - Booklist (Starred Review)

"A claustrophobic and suspenseful whodunit...that ponders the eternal question of how well we really know those closest to us." - BookPage (Starred Review)


"Sleepwalking is creepy. You're asleep, but you're walking through the night--like the living dead. I knew when I started The Girl from Widow Hills I was in for some shivers. But I had no idea the terrors that were in store."--R. L. STINE, bestselling author of Goosebumps and Fear Street

"A hauntingly atmospheric and gorgeously written page-turner, The Girl from Widow Hills is a deeply thought-provoking, riveting mystery about the complex weight of history and the dangerous power of the lies we tell ourselves."--KIMBERLY McCREIGHT, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia and A Good Marriage


"The perfect summer thriller . . . with a pace that made my heart race." --Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied

"Oh boy, does she ever know how to write a twisty-turny ending (or two, or more)." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"A lightning-fast mystery . . . that will have readers on the edge of their seats."--MARY KUBICA, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl
"In Miranda's newest, old classmates get together ten years after a tragedy, but when one of them disappears, it calls into question everything the group thought it had already reckoned with. Miranda always delivers a gripping thriller."
"It would be hard to concoct a more promisingly sinister setting [that] affords plenty of hiding places for predators and plenty of opportunities for the weather itself to turn villainous. Miranda uses this setting to maximum effect, both as a plot device and as a way to inject steady droplets of terror into the narrative. Masterfully suspenseful."
--Booklist (Starred Review)
"A heart-pumping thriller... Set in the Outer Banks and full of Miranda's signature 'it could happen to you so easily' tone, this one promises to have you sleeping with the lights on."
"Author of heartstopping titles like Such a Quiet Place and The Last to Vanish, Megan Miranda continues to shock readers with her latest lock-box mystery, The Only Survivors."

"One of the industry's most gripping voices in the thriller genre is back with another mystery that will keep you up well past your bedtime."

"In Miranda's newest, old classmates get together ten years after a tragedy, but when one of them disappears, it calls into question everything the group thought it had already reckoned with. Miranda always delivers a gripping thriller."
"Fans of Miranda's previous works won't be surprised by her skillful timing of twists and turns, but even longtime readers will appreciate just how tautly plotted this thriller is. She doesn't just employ the use of alternate timelines and perspectives; she breaks the mold entirely, using mirrored settings, dynamics and secrets to both expose the errors of her characters' past and highlight the effects of the allegiances they've formed. The result is a masterwork of craft artistry, so clever that you could almost read it twice--once for the plot and once to appreciate the technical acuity of its author. There's always a tendency with writers of Megan Miranda's caliber--those who never disappoint, never stagnate, never let you down--for readers to say that each new novel is their best yet. However, in the case of THE ONLY SURVIVORS, that statement is truer than ever."
