Waterstones Says

From the creators of the Night Vale books and podcast comes a beautifully eerie, twisted tale that will lead the reader deeper into the lives of the desert town residents, through the story of an old woman who haunts their houses.

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Welcome to Night Vale and It Devours! and the creators of the No. 1 podcast, comes a new novel set in the world of Night Vale and beyond.

In the town of Night Vale, there's a faceless old woman who secretly lives in everyone's home, but no one knows how she got there or where she came from . . . until now.

Told in a series of eerie flashbacks, the story of The Woman is revealed, as she guides, haunts and sabotages an unfortunate Night Vale resident named Craig. In the end, her dealings with Craig and her history in nineteenth century Europe will come together in the most unexpected and horrifying way.

Part The Haunting of Hill House, part The Count of Monte Cristo, and 100% about a faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Clever, twisted, beautiful, strange, wonderful and sweet . . . this might be the best book I've read in years - Patrick Rothfuss on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE

A marvellous book . . . full of people we love and root for, full of frightening things, and full of dramatic tension that pays off beautifully . . . shot through it all is the love and integrity that made Night Vale a success from the beginning - BOING BOING on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE

I'm packing up and moving to Night Vale! - Ransom Riggs

A splendid, weird, moving novel . . . it manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasise the real - NPR on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE

Eerie, enchanting . . . With this tightly plotted adventure, Fink and Cranor successfully expand their universe beyond Night Vale's desert setting. - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

A cinematic tale full of endless twists . . . a unique horror story with a rare swashbuckling and complex female protagonist I couldn't get enough of . . . Just when you think you know what's happening, the Faceless Old Woman will flip you around and make you question morality with a delicious, fun, well-crafted frustration - Gaby Dunn, NEW YORK TIMES

A chilling ghost story . . . A decades long, globe-spanning saga of adventure, betrayal, love, and fate [about] one of Welcome to Night Vale's most enigmatic and terrifying characters . . . How these stories converge and how the narrator becomes immortal are merciless in their ingenuity and immensely satisfying . . . A funny. terrifying. and unpredictable slice of Night Vale's macabre history - Kirkus (starred review) on THE FACELESS OLD WOMAN WHO SECRETLY LIVES IN YOUR HOME
