Publisher's Summary

One summer's afternoon, four-year-old Scott Henderson walked out onto a jetty over a lake in Black Ridge, Washington State. He never came back. John Henderson's world ended that day, but three years later he's still alive. Living a life, of sorts.

Until one night he receives an email from a stranger who claims to know what happened to his son. Henderson returns to Black Ridge, unleashing a terrifying sequence of events that threatens to destroy what remains of everything he once held dear.

Bad things don't just happen to other people - they're waiting round the corner for you too. And when they start to make their way in, you won't know until it's far too late.

What the Critics Say

"This is ferocious story-telling of the highest order, with corkscrew twists and turns that make it deliciously scary as the secrets unfold." (Daily Mail)

    "Not quite MMS!"

    A very good thriller with supernatural elements and an atmospheric sense of dread.
    Not as good as any of his full bore sci-fi, but it's got an interesting premise and a satisfactory ending.

    "Bad Things - Bad Purchase"

    Bad Things - Bad Purchase
    I don't know why this book was under category suspense , think it would be better categorised as paranormal
    I should have given up on the book well before the finish.
    I picked it mainly because of narrator Jeff Harding who is brill, but even he could improve what this book was all about, could I DID NOT GET IT, it was very wordy but I didn't understand what was going on.
    I could return this book & get a credit but I would like another reader to hear my views.
