“Strangely moving and movingly strange, Harrowgate is the world’s creepiest answer to ‘How’s the wife and kid?'” — Daniel Handler, author of Why We Broke Up,  A Series of Unfortunate Events

“Strong characters in a believable relationship, clear, flowing prose, and a plot that won’t quit, make the menace palpable. Be prepared to stay up till dawn with this one.”  -Jeffrey Ford, author of The Shadow Year 


Michael should be overjoyed by the birth of his son, but his wife, Sarah won’t let him touch the baby or allow anyone to visit.

Greta, an intrusive, sinister doula has wormed her way into their lives, driving a wedge between Michael and his family. Every time he leaves the Harrowgate, he returns to find his beloved wife and baby altered. He feels his family slipping away and, as a malevolent force begins to creep in, Michael does what any new father would do—he fights to keep his family together.


Kate Maruyama’s debut novel, Harrowgate, is a chilling, richly detailed story of love, loss, and the haunted place that lies between.
