Book Synopsis



New York Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix takes on the haunted house in a thrilling new novel that explores the way your past--and your family--can haunt you like nothing else.

When Louise finds out her parents have died, she dreads going home. She doesn't want to leave her daughter with her ex and fly to Charleston. She doesn't want to deal with her family home, stuffed to the rafters with the remnants of her father's academic career and her mother's lifelong obsession with puppets and dolls. She doesn't want to learn how to live without the two people who knew and loved her best in the world.

Mostly, she doesn't want to deal with her brother, Mark, who never left their hometown, gets fired from one job after another, and resents her success. But she'll need his help to get the house ready for sale because it'll take more than some new paint on the walls and clearing out a lifetime of memories to get this place on the market.

Some houses don't want to be sold, and their home has other plans for both of them...

Like his novels The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires and The Final Girl Support Group, How to Sell a Haunted House is classic Hendrix: equal parts heartfelt and terrifying--a gripping new read from "the horror master" (USA Today).



Review Quotes




A madcap fun house of a novel. Zigzags from hilarious to horrifying to heartbreaking and back again in the blink of an eye. I loved it!
--Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The House Across the Lake

"This book is a missile designed to obliterate you emotionally and absolutely annihilate you with terror. And let me tell you, Grady Hendrix does not miss."
--Mallory O'Meara, National bestselling author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon

"It's tempting to point out the balance of horror and humor here, and the commingling of the two really is something else, but the true power behind How to Sell a Haunted House is in its emotionality, the sister-brother dynamic, the family matters. It's life and death in the childhood home, and Hendrix has masterfully rendered the journey from one end to the other."
--Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box and Daphne

Another Southern Gothic Horror Comedy classic from Grady Hendrix...This clever, creepy, rollicking book will tug at your horror and heart strings.
--Paul Tremblay,
National bestselling author of The Cabin at the End of the World and The Pallbearers Club

Grady Hendrix tap dances the line between horror and heart. It's terrifying, darkly funny and empathetic with a left turn, a left hook when you're least expecting it. I loved it.
--Lauren Beukes,
Author of The Shining Girls

"A spirited nightmare story about death, but also, what comes after: grief, guilt, family secrets, and estate administration. Oh, also, did I mention the evil puppets?
--Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Accidents

After reading this, you might keep a weather eye on that doll propped over in the corner. And you probably also don't want to be trusting Grady Hendrix with a few hundred pages of your head anymore.
--Stephen Graham Jones, New York Times bestselling author of My Heart is a Chainsaw

With his trademark charm and ingenuity, Hendrix upends the haunted house story.
--Alma Katsu, Author of The Fervor and The Hunger
