Launch of The Thirteen (Random House of Canada).
The Witches of Eastwick meets Desperate Housewives in The Thirteen, Susie Moloneyís new and long-awaited novel.
Haven Woods is suburban heaven, a great place to raise a family. Itís close to the city, quiet, with great schools and its own hospital right up the road. Property values are climbing. The streets are clean, people keep their yards really nicely. Itís fairly pet friendly, though barking dogs are not welcomed. The crime rate is practically non-existent, unless you count the odd human sacrifice, dismemberment, animal attack, demon rape and blood atonement.
When Paula Wittmore goes home to Haven Woods to care for a suddenly ailing mother, she brings her daughter and a pile of emotional baggage. She also brings the last chance for twelve of her motherís closest frenemies, who like to keep their numbers at thirteen. And her daughter, young, innocent, is a worthy gift to the darkness. A circle of friends will support you through bad times. A circle of witches can drag you through hell.
Susie Moloney is the bestselling author of Bastion Falls, A Dry Spell, and The Dwelling. She has been published in numerous countries and assorted languages. She divides her time between the wild prairies of Manitoba and the wild world of New York City. Sheís not a witch, except maybe a little in the morning.
