A century-old mystery - and a desperate battle to survive. Abandon is a compulsive standalone thriller from Blake Crouch, the New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter and Recursion.

On Christmas Day in 1893, every inhabitant in a remote mining town disappears: belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins and not a single bone found.

More than a century later, journalist Abigail Foster and her historian father have set out to explore the long-abandoned town and learn what happened there. With them are two backcountry guides, a psychic and a paranormal photographer, who are there to investigate rumours that the town is haunted.

But Abigail and her companions are about to learn that the town’s ghosts are the least of their worries. Twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they realize they are not alone.

The ordeal that follows will test this small team past the breaking point as they battle the elements and human foes alike, and discover that the town’s secrets still have the power to kill . . .

Part journey into old-West history, part nail-biting survival thriller, Abandon is a bloody, darkly surprising tale as only Blake Crouch could deliver.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Abandon is terrific . . . A great storyteller hitting his stride. - Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels

Brilliant . . . the surprises begin early and continue until the very last page. But Abandon is not merely an exciting thriller with a terrific plot and gangbuster ending; the writing here sings; the characters live; and the universal themes of greed and evil resonate long after the final sentence. - John Lescroart, author of The Missing Piece

Written with the breathless grace of a Western sunset, Abandon is more than a nonstop thriller - it’s a riveting morality tale that will haunt you well past the final pages. Evocative, impassioned, and damn near impossible to put down. - Marcus Sakey, author of Afterlife
