Peter Papathanasiou recommends
Those Who Return (2022)
Kassandra Montag
"A twisty-turny plot, taut prose, engrossing characters, and a spooky rural Midwest setting that gradually overwhelms your senses like a narcotic. This is a pitch-perfect psychological thriller of the absolute highest calibre. Hatchery House will get under your skin and needle you long after the last page."
