“I read HIDDEN PICTURES and loved it.”
—STEPHEN KING
 

Fresh out of rehab, 23-year-old Mallory Quinn finds the perfect new job: Working as a babysitter in the idyllic suburb of Spring Brook, New Jersey.

She’s caring for a five-year-old boy named Teddy who loves to draw — but as his pictures turn increasingly sinister, Mallory suspects supernatural forces at work.

With help from an eccentric neighbor and a handsome landscaper, Mallory investigates a long-ago murder on the property—and discovers that Teddy’s strange drawings might be pointing her to the culprit...
