Narrated by acclaimed British actor Julian Rhind-Tutt, No One Goes Alone is a ghost story deeply grounded in history and available exclusively on audio, because as author Erik Larson says, “ghost stories are best told aloud.”

“An eerie, atmospheric, history- and science-infused, locked-room ghost story…A blockbuster production for audiobook fandom.”—Booklist, starred review

Narrator Brittany Pressley is no stranger to reading spooky tales, and in Ghost 19 she sets a chilling mood for this short story about a woman who becomes obsessed with watching the lives of her neighbors while stuck in a house that refuses to let her leave.

Perfect for podcast fans, The Ghost that Ate Us is a true crime style mockumentary that details the events leading up to a massacre at a fast food restaurant. At turns darkly absurd and tragically grim, this story will have you Googling to make sure nothing like this ever really happened because it just might be crazy enough to be true.

A darkly funny take on mothers and daughters, Motherthing is about a woman who must take drastic measures to save her husband and herself from the vengeful ghost of her mother-in-law.

Life is hell in this witty, surprisingly poignant debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally) and is on the cusp of a big promotion if only he can get one more member of the wealthy Harrison family to sell their soul.

Get in touch with the animal inside you with this darkly comic tale of a young woman in need of a transformation from the author of Cackle and The Return.

A Chicago cul-de-sac is about to get a new neighbor…of the demonic kind. When some gal pals christen a “She Shed,” things start to feel off. Even the calmest moms can’t justify the strange burn marks, self-moving dolls, and horrible smells surrounding their possessed friend, Liz. Together, they must fight the evil spirit…before the suburbs go completely to hell.

Acclaimed crime historian, podcaster, and author of American Sherlock Kate Winkler Dawson tells the story of Edward Rulloff—a serial murderer who was called “too intelligent to be killed”—and the array of 19th century investigators who were convinced his brain held the key to finally understanding the criminal mind.
