“Like a gonzo, mirror-universe, occult version of The Stepford Wives, with a dash of Stephen King thrown in….A compellingly uncanny narrative.”
—Globe and Mail

“A creepy-fun read, with characters ready-made for a Hollywood casting call.”
—Maclean’s

Desperate Housewives meets The Witches of Eastwick in Susie Moloney’s wonderfully creepy novel, The Thirteen. A paranormal thriller that blends contemporary suburban concerns and mores with the fiendishly supernatural, The Thirteen is the story of a woman who returns to her childhood home with her daughter, only to discover that the community is now run by a group of witches with nasty plans for the both of them. A wonderfully dark and original tale, The Thirteen will appeal to a wide range of readers—from fans of Laura Kasischke, Jennifer McMahon, Melissa De la Cruz, and Melissa Marr to anyone who has ever appreciated the delicious chills of Rosemary’s Baby.
