The Night Strangers
book | Fiction | 2011
In a dusty corner of a basement in a rambling Victorian house in Northern New Hampshire, a door has long been sealed shut with thirty-nine 6-inch-long carriage bolts. The home’s new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters. Together they hope to rebuild their lives there after Chip, an airline pilot, has to ditch his seventy-seat regional jet in Lake Champlain due to double engine failure. The body count? Thirty-nine.
What follows is a riveting ghost story with all the hallmarks readers have come to expect from bestselling, award-winning novelist Chris Bohjalian: A palpable sense of place; meticulous research; an unerring sense of the demons that drive us; and characters we care about deeply.
The difference this time? Some of those characters are dead.

Bohjalian's art is subtle, graceful, and thoughtful...How Bohjalian does it amazes me...A rare talent.
