Words Have Consequences.

And the town of Salem, Minnesota, learns this the hard way. A seeming loser, Red Doherty, develops an ability to sentence others to ghastly dooms merely through the power of suggestion. He is, as his pregnant wife explains, a crowmouth. Now, she and a local detective must work to stop Red Doherty’s crowmouth before he dooms his wife and unborn child.

Crowmouth is an exciting and terrifying novel that takes its time building its unique brand of dread. You will want to be in a well-lit place when you read this stunning debut from Minnesotan author Ronin Heck.
