The Damned

A Novel

Read by Corey Brill

From the #1 internationally bestselling author of The Demonologist, called “smart, thrilling, utterly unnerving” by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, comes a spine-tingling supernatural thriller.

Danny Orchard died on his sixteenth birthday—and so did his twin sister, Ashleigh—but Danny came back. He wrote a bestselling memoir about his experience of Heaven called The After, but despite his fame and fortune he’s never been able to enjoy his second chance at life.

His sister won’t let him.

Charming, magnetic, and manipulative in life, Ash appeared perfect to outsiders but privately terrorized her family, and that didn’t stop her from continuing to terrorize them after her death. She has haunted Danny for twenty years and now, just when he’s met the love of his life and has a chance at a real family, Ash is more determined than ever to keep her brother all to herself.

Danny has been to Heaven. In order to silence his sister once and for all, he’ll have to meet her in a different realm. Which means, he has to die one more time before he can go on living.
