A Man Came Out of A Door in the Mountain
A NovelBook - 2014
No one wants bad news, but it's something to tell.
In isolated British Columbia, girls, mostly Native, are vanishing from the sides of a notorious highway. Leo Kreutzer and his four friends are barely touched by these disappearances - until a series of enigmatic strangers arrive in their remote mountain town- Keven Seven beguiles shy Ursie with his fantastical card tricks; bone-white Hana Swann bewitches Bryan with ideas of violent revenge against the tyrannical local meth dealer and, even more frighteningly, hypnotizes the toughest among them, Jackie, into undertaking a solitary journey.
It seems as if the devil himself has appeared among them.
A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain is the intoxicatingly lush debut novel by the critically acclaimed author of The King of Limbo , and is a tale written as seductively and beautifully as the devil's dark arts are wielded.

'Dark mysterious . . . and by turns Gothic and grittily realistic, astute, and poetic in its evocation of evil everywhere.' Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever and Servants of the Map
