Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives—terrific jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a passionate marriage. What they don't have is a child, and as they attempt one infertility treatment after the next, yearning turns into obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood come true, Alex and Leslie travel deep into Slovenia, where they submit to a painful and terrifying procedure that finally gives them what they so desperately desire.
But even before Leslie gives birth, strange and really rather awful things begin to happen to their bodies...and to their minds.
Ten years later, cosseted, adored, but living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night. The twins know that the sounds coming from their parents' bedroom are real. And they're getting louder each night.
Driven to a desperate search for answers, Adam and Alice set out on a quest for freedom...and for knowledge of the true nature of the man and woman who raised them. Their discovery will upend everything they thought they knew about their parents and will reveal a threat so horrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.
