A lost child.
A marriage shattered beyond repair?
John Baxter doesn't think so, which is why he has planned this weekend getaway with his wife. He expected a lot of shouting, a lot of tears, but in the end, he hoped to have a stronger foundation upon which they could start rebuilding what they had once had.
What he wasn't expecting was the home invasion…
…and the hell that awaited them beneath the rented cabin.
Praise for Weekend Getaway
"Tom Deady’s Weekend Getaway demonstrates that his talent isn’t limited to a single style. In the same way that his first novel, Haven, played a variation on a theme of early King, this short, shocking book is an extreme horror riff in the style of Brian Keene or Richard Laymon. Deady’s out to show that he’s no one note performer. Weekend Getaway does just that. Listen up! This cat can play.
– Bracken MacLeod, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of Stranded and Come to Dust
"Tom Deady's Weekend Getaway is a suspenseful thriller raring to dismantle the notion of the idyllic New England vacation. You won't be able to set it down."
–Glenn Rolfe, author of Becoming and Blood and Rain
"Unsettling as hell. Deady's tale will get under your skin and stay there."
–Ronald Malfi, author of Bone White
"There's a reason Tom Deady is already winning awards—he's a wonderful writer who's gonna make waves in this genre for a long time to come! With Weekend Getaway, Deady takes us on a nail-biting trip into the boonies with characters who are scarred, both physically and emotionally. When you're done with this one, you'll be damaged too."
–James Newman, author of Animosity, Ugly as Sin, and Odd Man Out
"Brutal and tense, this is one getaway you don't want to miss. My heart is still pounding."
–Hunter Shea, author of We Are Always Watching
"I flat out loved this book. It grabbed me and pulled me in, with brutal honesty, suspense, shock, and ultimately, peace. Weekend Getaway is easily the best book I've read in 2017, and perhaps for a couple of years before that."
– John R. Little, author of The Memory Tree, Miranda, and Little by Little
"Swift, savage, and genuinely disturbing, Deady's novella will drag you shrieking into the darkness."
—Jonathan Janz, author of Exorcist Falls and Children of the DarkAdd on Goodreads
