Living in an abandoned house near the river, she dreams of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now that the children are four, it's time to go, but the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat - blindfolded. One wrong choice and they will die. Something is following them. but is it man, animal, or monster?Interweaving past and present, Bird Box by Josh Malerman is a snapshot of a world unraveled by terror.
