Before the town had a name, people buried their dead on the mountainside. Now Mont des Morts exists only in memory but its ghosts still haunt Delphine’s family.
First in a series of three novellas set in the world of Knock Knock.
“Delphine Dodd not only expands and illuminates the tragedy in the brilliant novel, Knock Knock, but also further proves Miskowski possesses that talent most enviable in a writer: she makes you *believe*.” — Simon Strantzas, author of Nightingale Songs
“Miskowski doesn’t merely craft ‘atmosphere,’ she generates gravity. Dark and compelling, Delphine Dodd is a singularity… pick it up and its pull is inescapable.” — Ennis Drake, author of Twenty-Eight Teeth of Rage
