'Sensational and deeply addictive' Karin Slaughter

'Fresh and atmospheric . . . haunting' Anna Bailey

'A pitch-perfect psychological thriller' Peter Papathanasiou

Amid the desolate wilderness of the Great Plains of Nebraska, a region so isolated you could drive for hours without seeing another human being, sits Hatchery House. Having served as a church, an asylum and an orphanage, Hatchery is now a treatment facility for orphaned or abandoned children with psychiatric disorders. Haunted by patients past and present, only the most vulnerable find a home within its walls.

Dr. Lorelei 'Lore' Webber, a former FBI psychiatrist, has almost grown used to the unorthodox methods used at Hatchery House. But when one of her patients is murdered, Lore finds herself dragged into the centre of an investigation that unearths startling truths, shocking discoveries, and untold cruelty. And as the investigation unravels, Lore is forced to confront the past she's spent her whole life running from - a secret that threatens to undo her entirely.

Darkly riveting and explosive, and with an unforgettable cast of deeply human characters, Those Who Return is a searing psychological thriller of guilt and redemption, set against a landscape as awe-inspiring as it is unforgiving.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Sensational and deeply addictive, Those Who Return is a true page-turner with an atmosphere that reminded me of True Detective and The Dry - Karin Slaughter

A twisty-turny plot, taut prose, engrossing characters, and a spooky rural Midwest setting that gradually overwhelms your senses like a narcotic. This is a pitch-perfect psychological thriller of the absolute highest calibre. Hatchery House will get under your skin and needle you long after the last page - Peter Papathanasiou, author of The Stoning

Fresh and atmospheric, a mystery as haunting as its lonesome Great Plains backdrop - Anna Bailey, author of Tall Bones

What an extraordinary book; the prose so muscular and assured. Psychologically astute with a setting that pulses as much as its protagonist, this is a novel that is both poetic and haunting - Victoria Selman, author of TRULY, DARKLY, DEEPLY

Such an intense and captivating mystery. I loved it! - James Delargy, author of 55

A darkly atmospheric and beautifully written psychological thriller - Irish Independent

The Great Plains make a great setting for a disturbing tale of physical isolation and mental desolation - Sunday Times Crime Club

Montag's debut thriller transports you to the vast big sky country of the Great Plains of Nebraska . . . old secrets spill like vengeful ghosts - Peterborough Telegraph

A searing psychological thriller of guilt and redemption, set in the Great Plains of Nebraska - My Weekly
