They're here ... The boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there's so many ... They're coming for me now. We're all going soon. All of us. Pastor Len warn them that the boy he's not to

The last words of Pamela May Donald (1961 - 2012) Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe.

There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt. But they are not unchanged. And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone. A message that will change the world.

The message is a warning.

MEDIA REVIEWS
THE THREE is really wonderful. A cross between Michael Crichton and Shirley Jackson, hard to put down and vastly entertaining. -- Stephen King
Sarah Lotz is a ferociously imaginative storyteller whose twisty plots will kick the stairs out from under you. She's a talent to watch. -- Lauren Beukes
The finest thriller I've read in years. Dark, subtle and completely unputdownable, I was enthralled from the opening line to the last. -- Sarah Pinborough
Compulsive reading * Marie-Claire *
Sarah Lotz has just written the perfect horror story. This will be undoubtedly one of the best horror stories published in 2014. * The Book Plank *
It's reminiscent of Stephen King's CARRIE and THE THREE comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast. * The Guardian *
Tiptoeing the tightrope between fantasy and horror * Daily Mail *
One of the finest, freakiest horror novels I've read. -- Chuck Wendig
The author's use of the oral-history format, with its shifting voices and points of view, is a stroke of genius: the reader is in a state of near-constant confusion at the beginning, which is slowly replaced by unease and then dread as the various commentators start to see the bigger picture. A very creepy, very effective novel. -- David Pitt * Booklist *

“Wow, Just wow.”

An absolutely astonishing book. This story gripped me from the very first page and had things like real life not intervened, I would have read it in one sitting. It is written as a 'book within a book'... More
