“The first time I saw a sleeper, I was nine years old.” Best-selling author Jennifer McMahon (Promise Not to Tell) opens her new novel, The Winter People, with a sentence that offers a tantalizing glimpse of the horrors to come in this marvelously creepy page-turner.
Could there be a more apropos time to read Jennifer McMahon's chilling novel The Winter People than while a "polar vortex" funnels arctic air across much of the country? One thing's for sure, though—this is a super creepy book. Like, sleep-with-the-lights-on, close-the-closet-door scary, with plenty of hair-raising moments that will linger in your thoughts long after reading them.
