Somehow, Luther Kite has found them. At long last, the next installment in the Andrew Z. Thomas tetralogy... Following the events of DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS, Andy Thomas and Violet King are hiding out in the wilds of northern Canada, where Violet has a four-month-old son and a burgeoning romance with Andy. On a cold, rainy night at their cabin in the woods, the promise of an idyllic life that seems just around the corner is shattered when a man from their past, a monster of pure malevolence, returns. What he has in store for them will challenge their understanding of evil and stretch the fibers of their love to the breaking point. This eBook, a 20,000-word novella, is both the sequel to Desert Places and Locked Doors and the bridge between Locked Doors and Stirred, coming this year from Crouch and J.A. Konrath. It isn’t necessary for you to read either Desert Places or Locked Doors to fully understand and be terrified by Break You. Additional material includes a foreword, afterword, bonus interview with Blake and J.A. Konrath, excerpts from DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS by Crouch, and SHAKEN by Konrath. About the Author: BLAKE CROUCH was born near the piedmont town of Statesville, North Carolina in 1978. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 2000 with degrees in English and Creative Writing. Blake is the author of four novels and numerous short stories. He lives with his family in southwest Colorado, where he is at work on the novel STIRRED with J.A Konrath, which will be the conclusion to both Crouch’s Andrew Z. Thomas and Konrath’s Detective Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels’ series. Blake’s website is www.blakecrouch.com. PRAISE FOR CROUCH’S DESERT PLACES... Harrowing...terrific...a whacked out combination of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy. PAT CONROY Crouch's smart, tight prose displays plenty of narrative energy...<he> shows real talent here... PUBLISHERS WEEKLY An ingenious, diabolical debut that calls into question all our easy moral assumptions. DESERT PLACES is a genuine thriller that pulses with adrenaline from start to finish. Blake Crouch is one of the most exciting new writers I've read in years. VAL MCDERMID DESERT PLACES is about survival, both emotional and physical. Crouch delivers his description of place with telling and vivid prose...<and his> carefully crafted characters make the story immediate, intense and thoroughly believable...will linger in the <reader's> consciousness long after the book is read. DENVER POST <T>he fastest, meanest read I've had in quite a while. Crouch clamps on and propels you forward, even though you're not at all sure you want to go into the disturbing places where he's taking you. THE CAPITAL TIMES Wow. Sometimes you stumble across a book that just plain creeps you out. There are many types of DESERT PLACES, and the most inhospitable are in the human heart. ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS <T>wisted...surprises around every turn...don't climb in if you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, might be pregnant, or are under four feet tall. IREDELL CITIZEN <Crouch's> writing is sick, and I mean that in the very best way. If DESERT PLACES is any indication of what we can expect from Crouch in the future, be prepared to see his name on the bestseller lists. OTTAWA SUN This is a complex, cleverly constructed novel of motive, and Crouch takes his time bringing us through the story...it's a great debut. Crouch is an author to watch. THE GLOBE AND MAIL (TORONTO) Two hundred and eighty pages of pure, lean thriller...prose that's throat grabbing...Blake Crouch is a major league talent who's going to be really, really big. SARAH WEINMAN, Gumshoe-Award Winning Crime Columnist <C>arried by rich, image-filled prose. Crouch will handcuff you, blindfold you, throw you in the trunk of a car, and drag you kicking and screaming through a story so intense, so emotionally packed, that you will walk away stunned.
