“A feverish wet dream of erotic horror – eerie, intense, and deeply unsettling.”

“This is probably the most impressive horror novel I’ve read in 2016.”

“McHugh leaves nothing to the imagination with this one, plunging the reader into a sex-filled story of a family being haunted and torn apart. This book will make you feel dirty once you have finished it.”

Rebecca Malone has problems. Not just the alcohol. Not just her husband’s inane attempts at writing a bestselling novel, their teenage daughter’s promiscuity, or her certifiable mother. Not even her lover, who wants to take her husband’s place in Cherrywood Lodge, the famous estate she now calls home. Her biggest issues start the moment she discovers a chest of ancient mahjong tiles in the basement of her new house, causing her life to spin out of control with hallucinations, sexual deviances, and grisly murders. Is the mahjong game haunted? Or are Rebecca’s problems part of a different game, started before she was born?

“This is what the [American Horror Story] Murder House should have been.”

“Picture the strange love-child between Stephen King and E.L. James and the kind of imagination that kid could have… I’m not easily frightened, but some of the truly dark and gritty scenes in this novel freaked me out a bit.”
