The Noise

Terror has a new sound




A thrilling suspense novel from the world's bestselling thriller writer

Two sisters have always stood together. Now, they're the only ones left.

In the shadow of Mount Hood in the US Pacific Northwest, sixteen-year-old Tennant is checking rabbit traps with her eight-year-old sister Sophie.

The girls are suddenly overcome by a strange vibration rising out of the forest, building in intensity until it sounds like a deafening crescendo of screams.

From out of nowhere, their father sweeps them up and drops them through a trapdoor into a storm cellar. But the noise only gets worse . . .

Praise for The Noise

A really entertaining thriller . . . like Michael Crichton (who might have written something very like this), Patterson and Barker keep ratcheting up the suspense and the sense of impending doom, until, by the end, we wish we could read faster just so we can find out what happens next.

Booklist

Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... there's no stopping his imagination.

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

No one gets this big without natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades.

LEE CHILD, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

Patterson boils a scene down to a single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves a plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind.

MICHAEL CONNELLY

James Patterson is the boss. End of.

IAN RANKIN

James Patterson is the gold standard by which all others are judged.

STEVE BERRY, bestselling author of the Colton Malone series

Patterson is in a class by himself.
