Twenty-five years ago, Maggie Holt and her parents moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in Vermont. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal her farther later recounted in a nonfiction book, House of Horrors, that became a worldwide phenomenon. When Maggie inherits the estate after her father’s death, she plans to renovate and sell it. She doesn’t remember the encounters with malevolent spirits mentioned in her father’s book, and she’s a skeptic. But as Maggie experiences strange occurrences in Baneberry Hall straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.

“Another breathtaking hit from Sager, who’s proven himself a master at crafting new twists on classic horror tales.”

— Booklist

“Home Before Dark is a compelling and layered mix of taut psychological suspense, genuinely scary haunted-house terrors and the vagaries of memory, capped off with an inventive and satisfyingly wild ending.”
