Publisher's Summary

Whoever is born here is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay never leaves.
Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a 17th-century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she's there. Or what a threat she poses. Because if the stitches are ever cut open, the story goes, the whole town will die.
The curse must not be allowed to spread. The elders of Black Spring have used high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers decide to break the strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But in so doing, they send the town spiraling into a dark nightmare.

Just brilliantly creepy

Listened to this twice, properly spooky and genuinely new, while being grounded in the tradition of witch stories of old... Recommended

Brilliant new concept

Excellent fresh new take on a horror novel involving a witches curse.
At the very beginning I wasn't sure what was going on as you are kind of dropped into the story without any background information and I was kind of confused (you will understand when you listen) but I'm glad I stuck with it as I was rewarded greatly.
It was a real rollercoaster of a novel, extremely scary at times, also funny and in places very moving, it was difficult not to feel for the main characters.
The narrated did a wonderful job at telling this tale, and I applaud such a terrific audiobook.
