BOOKLIST RAVES: “Dressler’s latest is a captivating page-turner about what defines and divides a community, both in life and in death.”

[A] spiritual homage to the Victorian-era Christmas ghost story tradition . . . [P]erfect for the winter doldrums, due to both the timing of the narrative and Dressler’s ongoing ability to weave emotionally compelling stories . . . [Her] aptitude for writing at the intersection of conflict and compassion continues to shine. [A] series that will continue to haunt the reader for many long years.” —SUBLIME HORROR

I See You So Close is a haunting story filled with longing and loss . . .  a magical spell woven with icy thread, and the fabric of lives torn apart. Dressler is a powerful voice—hypnotic at times, speaking eternal truths,  while conjuring darkness, a dash of hope tossed in for good
measure.”—Richard Thomas, Bram Stoker, Shirley Jackson, and Thriller Award winner and nominee

“This poem of a novel, exquisitely written, introduced me to the inner life of a ghost and held me spellbound throughout. . . . I heard whisperings from the attic, from under the bed.  M Dressler has written an extraordinary book, poignant and tragic.” —Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Beautiful Lost

“M Dressler has created an original world between time and place, but the longings of her characters are very real . . . Don’t miss this unusual and wonderful novel.” —Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of the Sarah Booth Delaney mystery series

The Last to See Me is a riveting supernatural duel that reveals itself one measured and lyrical gut punch at a time.  A compelling and beautifully written page-turner.” —Scott Hawkins, author of The Library at Mount Char

“A marvelously written, brave, and (yes) haunting novel. M Dressler has given us a remarkable and unforgettable character.” — Jeff Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Blame

“Dressler swaths us in gentle prose that suddenly turn to barbed wire. Readers will find in its supernatural theme a new way to think about place, alienation, and the yearnings that make ghosts of us all. This is a writer working at the height of her powers.” —W. Scott Poole, Bram Stoker Award nominee and author of In the Mountains of Madness: The Life and Extraordinary Afterlife of H.P. Lovecraft

“Reminiscent of The Others, the living are haunting the dead in The Last to See Me. Dressler has exquisitely crafted a world . . . in which you will be ensnared and entranced .” —Wendy Webb, bestselling author of The Fate of Mercy Alban
