Magnolia Press is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired Amanda McHugh’s novel, Like Monsters of the Deep. Pitched as Gone Girl meets Homecoming, this psychological thriller with sci-fi elements follows Eve’s return to her hometown at the request of her childhood friend, Laura. When she gets to the address Laura gave her, Eve is taken hostage by AFH — a corporation cloaked in secrecy, whose CEO is obsessed with vengeance and time — and made part of an experiment known as “the Subject.”
With unreliable narrators, unexpected twists, and a deep look into how social media has changed human connection, Like Monsters of the Deep is a thought-provoking, chilling addition to Magnolia’s 2019 - 2020 collection.
