Fans of Stephen King and Bentley Little will devour The Beast
of Barcroft, Bill Schweigart’s brilliant new vision of dark
suburban horror. Ben thought he had the neighbor from hell. He
didn’t know how right he was. . . .
Ben McKelvie believes he’s moving up in the world when he and
his fiancée buy a house in the cushy Washington, D.C., suburb
of Bancroft. Instead, he’s moving down—way down—thanks to
Madeleine Roux, the crazy neighbor whose vermin-infested
property is a permanent eyesore and looming hazard to public
First, Ben’s fiancée leaves him; then, his dog dies,
apparently killed by a predator drawn into Barcroft by
Madeleine’s noxious menagerie. But the worst is yet to come
for Ben, for he’s not dealing with any ordinary wild animal.
This killer is something much, much worse. Something that
couldn’t possibly exist—in this world.
Now, as a devilish creature stalks the locals, Ben resolves to
take action. With some grudging assistance from a curator at
the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and the crackpot theories of a
self-styled cryptozoologist, he discovers the sinister truth
behind the attacks, but knowing the Beast of Barcroft and
stopping it are two different animals.
