From the Publisher
From acclaimed author Andrew Pyper, a gripping novel of
psychological suspense about four men haunted by a secret from
There''s no such thing as an empty house...
Trevor, Randy, Ben and Carl grew up together in the small town of
Grimshaw as many boys do--playing hockey on the local team, the
Guardians, and forging friendships that run deep. Twenty-four years
later, Trevor, recently diagnosed with Parkinson''s disease and
faced with his own mortality, learns that his old friend Ben has
committed suicide. He returns to Grimshaw to pay his respects and
to reunite with Randy and Carl.
But going home means going back to the memories of a sinister crime
that occurred in the abandoned house at 321 Caledonia Street--a
crime that claws its way into the present, leaving its indelible
mark on everyone. Chilling to the core and gripping in the extreme,
The Guardians is taut psychological
suspense that will leave you at once breathless and moved.
