Memories scream behind every blink: the footage of Marshall’s son, Noah, and of his long, fatal fall. Remains beneath a blood-stained morgue sheet. Good times, shattered.
Marshall’s hunger to understand the reason for his son’s suicide devours his life. It appears that the boy’s secret will remain buried with him–until Marshall discovers something tucked into the seams of a musty, old teddy bear. It is a portable thumb-drive, the contents painting a chilling portrait of a child who was desperate to be heard, and his mysterious Internet friend who was only too happy to listen. And whisper, whisper, whisper.
Step by step, Marshall must track these digital footprints into very real and very dark woods, unaware that he is being led into a maze of lies and violence from which he may never return.
The Fallen Boys is a gut-wrenching novel of extreme psychological horror from the author of House of Sighs and Where the Dead Go to Die.
