She lives in their dreams. They die in hers. Nothing good can grow in the forgotten town of Bedford. After the closure of the paper mill, the town has become a wasteland.

A decade of layoffs has caused a collective bitterness, leading many inhabitants to alcoholism, crime and abuse. The worst symptom, however, is the nightmare they all share every single night. Susan Marley haunts their dreams.

The object of derision, lust and fear, she wanders the town barefoot, never saying a word. But when she dies, betrayed by life one final time, Bedford begins to suffer horrors far more terrifying than any vision. What dark secrets has Susan Marley been keeping? And why has she come back?

For fans of A.M. Shine and Rebecca Netley, The Keeper is a chilling small-town horror from Bram Stoker Award winner Sarah Langan.

 'Inhabits the mind like a dark, lingering smoke' Jack Ketchum, author of Offspring

'Sarah Langan combines a genuinely poetic sensibility with a taste for horror's most bravura excesses' Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story
