OUR EYES AT NIGHT–COMING MARCH 1, 2022
A spellbinding novel of the hunter and the hunted, defiance and survival, for fans of Jennifer McMahon and Simone St. James
In a climate-ravaged town in the remote Utah desert, a house remodels itself, a cemetery is rearranged, and an ancient valley is suddenly haunted by a glimmering visitor. Called in to “clean” the unwanted dead, ghost hunter Philip Pratt finds himself in territory at once familiar and unfamiliar, stalking the spirit of Emma Rose Finnis, a one-hundred-year-old phantom who has never let his own spirit rest.
Yet Emma has come to this blazing desert for her own reasons—to see just how far a ghost can go in a changing world. And if a living man bars her path, she must find a way through him, even if it means risking her heart and soul. Joined by other ghosts of the West, both old and new, she will make her stand for the unexpected chance at love and home, far from the cold ocean grave where she began.
A boldly imaginative tale of loss, hope, and danger by the award-winning author of the Last Ghost series, Our Eyes at Night is a journey through a stunning landscape of inescapable consequences, for both the living and the dead.
“Our Eyes at Night is a work of great wit and imagination, with chills aplenty. Grab it if you see it; you won’t be disappointed. M Dressler has a masterful grip on narrative and can write the lights out. I am new to her work but will be devouring her back catalogue in short order.”—Billy O’Callaghan, author of The Dead House
“Eerie and daring, a lyrically told tale of powerful and purposeful spirits that will leave you pondering what the dead might actually think of the living, and whether the wall between the two is ever as impermeable as we believe. ”—Elizabeth Crook, author of The Which Way Tree
“Combining the normalization of horror and surprising depths, Our Eyes at Night captures a world just beyond our reality, a world whose presence we fear not because it’s scary but because it is so very familiar.”—Eric Barnes, author of The City Where We Once Lived
“Maybe we’ve all learned how to live with ghosts. We are aware now more than ever of how we occupy haunted spaces. Still, perhaps most of us haven’t learned to think of our ghosts as of us, as actually us—as this terrific novel suggests. Our Eyes at Night is a ghost story, yes. More than that, it gives us a story about humanity: it is a tale of pursuit and an heroic journey; it is a novel about fear and politics, about race and class and gender, about loyalty and persistence and especially about love. It interrogates the nature not so much of death (though it does that) as of life and choice. Our Eyes at Night is full of wonder and humanity, and it is deeply, deeply satisfying.”—Katherine Coles, Utah poet laureate and author of Look Both Ways
