"Wildwood Road is a brilliant novel of supernatural suspense that
reminded me of the early classics by Ira Levin—think Rosemary's Baby and you
won't be disappointed. There's no baby, but oh baby, there is one creepy little
lost girl that kept me turning the pages long after I should have gone to bed.
This one's a keeper."
— Stephen King
by Christopher Golden
About the Book:
Michael and Jillian Dansky seemed to have it all.
But driving home from a Halloween masquerade, Michael momentarily nods off behind the wheeland wakes to find nothing is the same. Standing by his car is a little girl he came within a breath of running down. She leads Michael to her "home," an empty house haunted by whispers, and sends him away with a plea: "come find me."
But in the weeks to follow, it's clear that someone—or something—doesn't want Michael to find her: ominous figures with gray coats and misshapen faces trail him everywhere. And then one morning a cold, cruel, vindictive woman awakens in place of his wife.
Michael must now search not only for the lost girl but for a way to find the Jillian he's always loved, and to do so he must return to where the nightmare began. Down an isolated lane, where he'll find them—or die trying.

of his generation…Everything he writes glows with imagination."
— Peter Straub
"May be Golden's best.... a haunted house tale, restrained and adult."
