Bestselling author Susie Moloney returns with a riveting psychological suspense novel that combines the insight of Sue Miller with the eeriness of Stephen King.

Shaky and unsure after the death of her husband, Glenn Darnley returns to work at Shelter Realty and receives her first listing: 362 Belisle, a lovely three-bedroom house in a respectable neighbourhood. Glenn thinks that selling the house is going to be a piece of cake -- but she couldn't be more wrong.

After twenty days of frequent showings and not a single offer, a young couple finally bites. Dan and Rebecca Mason feel the house has the potential to be their dream home. But dreams are funny: they can so easily become dark and twisted.

The Masons move out before they've even had time to hang curtains or hook up the VCR, and the listing returns to Glenn. This time a newly divorced housewife with a young son purchases the house. But they don't stay long either. And the next owner, a flagging science fiction writer with an escalating drinking problem, is not welcome in the house. Dreadful things happen at 362 Belisle. Could it be that the inhabitants discover the dangers of desires that are realized? Is there something living unseen alongside them, feeding off their longings and petty jealousies, conjuring terrible, seductive spectres to haunt and tempt them? Does it want them to go -- or to never leave?

The Dwelling is gripping, compelling and unsettling -- exactly what you want in a psychological thriller, but not in a house.

Excerpt from The Dwelling:
The house was quiet around him. A stillness that felt like breath held, but it might have been his own. Unaware, he hummed as he drew. A tune that seemed to fit his mood. Something old and dreamy. Once, far away, he heard something in the attic, which he ignored or simply didn't acknowledge. Once, he thought he heard water running in the tub, but it was discreet and quiet, muffled as though through a closed door, and it went away before he'd really even thought it through. Around him, the house went about its business.
