The Witches of Eastwick meets Desperate Housewives in Susie Moloney''s The Thirteen, a Globe and Mail Best Book.

Haven Woods is suburban heaven, a great place to raise a family. It''s 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. It''s 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 mother''s 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.

Read from the Book

ONE   The drunk at table eight was shouting something at the dancer. Paula couldn’t hear what it was over the music, but from his ugly expression she guessed it wasn’t nice. Then he threw something that landed on the stage in front of poor Rachel. A typical Tuesday night at Blondie’s.   Paula looked away, pretended not to see. Another asshole in the bar. She hated her job. Hated.   “What the fuck?” Andy said from behind the bar. “Go see what’s going on.”   “He threw something at Rachel,” Paula said. She and Andy had a sometimes thing, which she also sometimes hated. Today she could smell his cologne on her hair. Chaps. Right now she didn’t like his tone.   “I said go see ,” he snarled, and turned his back to her.   Paula groaned and grabbed her tray, wet with spilled beer, and headed for the fray.   There were only about ten people in the whole bar. It was early, just a couple of hours into her shift. The man had been drunk when she’d got there, obnoxious, loud. She’d picked him out right away. When the first dancer came on, he’d shut up and Paula had hoped that would be it.   “Excuse me, sir,” she said. Even as she did she tensed against the inevitable transfer of his anger. His spittle.   Wet-eyed, he tried to focus. Paula had a horrible moment of bar clarity as she imagined this guy stumbling home to his family and picking

Editorial Reviews

WINNER 2012 - Manitoba Book Awards' Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction
A Globe and Mail Best Book

"Moloney can make even the sunniest places seem dark, and...Haven Woods is more like hell on Earth."
-Uptown
 
"Moloney brings a comical matter-of-factness to witchcraft.... It has a page-turning energy, with bursts of vivid writing and dark humour. Moloney continues to stretch the horror genre."
-Winnipeg Free Press
 
"Compellingly uncanny.... Pick up a copy of The Thirteen...as soon as possible."
-The Globe and Mail
