Product description


"Lourey serves up another terrifying reality-based thriller...a tale of horror, grit, and, ultimately, hope." --Kirkus Reviews

"Curious, perceptive Francesca, with her concern for others, makes an irresistible heroine. Psychological thriller fans will be satisfied." --Publishers Weekly

"Litani shows that the real terror is not ghosts, but human monsters." --St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Lourey has accomplished quite a feat here with a coming-of-age novel buried inside a very dark psychological thriller." --Bookreporter

"A riveting and disturbing thriller. With Litani, Lourey truly cements her position as the queen of melding small-town suspense and coming-of-age stories that creep into your bones and refuse to leave. Lourey's masterful pacing and prose create a captivatingly claustrophobic atmosphere that hooks you from the very first page and tightens the noose with every shockingly chilling reveal. While secrets and lies fester at the heart of the novel, it is Frankie, the engaging young protagonist, who becomes a reminder that humanity can exist even in the darkest of places. This is one that's going to stick with you for a long time. An absolute must-read." --Brianna Labuskes, Washington Post bestselling author of Girls of Glass

"Writing about real monsters lurking in Minnesota's small towns is Lourey's specialty. The sinister, eerie feeling you get while reading this creepy story...well, that's another unnerving tendency. In Litani, Lourey is at her terrifying best. A heart-pounding story of suspense." --Kaira Rouda, international and USA Today bestselling author

"Move over, Stephen King. Jess Lourey is a master at evoking the horror that lurks beneath the surface of a sleepy all-American small town. Vivid, consuming, and terrifying, Litani will haunt your dreams." --Michele Campbell, internationally bestselling author of It's Always the Husband
