A supernatural superthriller from the author of Let the Right One In

Molly wakes her mother to go to the toilet. The campsite is strangely blank. The toilet block has gone. Everything else has gone too. This is a place with no sun. No god.

Just four families remain. Each has done something to bring them here - each denies they deserve it. Until they see what's coming over the horizon, moving irrevocably towards them. Their worst mistake. Their darkest fear.

And for just one of them, their homecoming.


This gripping conceptual horror takes you deep into one of the most macabre and unique imaginations writing in the genre. On family, on children, Lindqvist writes in a way that tears the heart and twists the soul. I Am Behind You turns the world upside down and, disturbing, terrifying and shattering by turns, it will suck you in.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A compelling treatise on loneliness, alienation and the evil that lurks in every human heart * Guardian *
Genuinely scary . . . Vividly brought to life . . . Stockholm's answer to Stephen King? Well, Lindqvist certainly has the talent * Daily Mail *
A horror that works its spell slowly, and you'll be gripped by the end * SciFiNow *
Affectingly eerie scenario, and one which grows more and more menacingly surreal . . . haunting, memorably gruesome * SFX *
Arguably the most talented horror writer of his generation, and certainly one of the most literate . . . An intense powerhouse of a book that is equal, if not better than, the undead opus that made him a worldwide success . . . Raw, unsettling, and worms its way beneath the skin with nightmarish ease. * Starburst *
I Am Behind You is a book guaranteed to deliver lovers of dark fiction the foreboding, dread-soaked delights they've been hungering for. At the very least, it brings a new and utterly alien villain into the tradition of cosmic horror, and that alone is worth scaring yourself over * Barnes and Noble *
