Bestselling Author of
Her Last Breath

“Hypnotic, heart-wrenching, and harrowing, THE NIGHT FLOWERS is an exceptional debut. The twisted path of long-buried wrongs

coming to light will keep you

on the edge of your seat.

Still, it’s the honest exploration

of violence, trauma, and scars

that never heal that will haunt you. Sara Herchenroether is a true talent.” 

Bestselling Author of
The Cloisters

"Haunting and compulsively readable, The Night Flowers is impossible to put down. A novel that is as much ghost story as mystery, Herchenroether has crafted a truly original narrative that unfolds with a shocking array of twists and turns against the backdrop of the Gila National Forest.

Every voice in the chorus

that makes up this novel

sings a siren song of suspense you won't be able to resist.

I devoured it. "

Bestselling Author of
More Than You'll Ever Know

"Sara Herchenroether's astonishing, intricate debut is a deeply nuanced portrayal of those called to name the dead.

A cold case detective and

soon-to-be grandmother,

a genealogist librarian recovering from breast cancer, and the ghost of a murdered woman are the unforgettable heroines of a novel about confronting--and transcending--mortality.

Like Tana French meets Ann Patchett, THE NIGHT FLOWERS begs to be raced through the first time and savored the second. Sara Herchenroether is a fierce talent with much to say about women's strength in their most vulnerable moments." 

Author of The Verifiers

“The Night Flowers is so many things:

a murder mystery,

a ghost story, a meditation

on violence and the fragility

of the body.  Compelling, insightful, and evocative.”

Author of the forthcoming
The Tip Line

"Lush, atmospheric, and riveting, The Night Flowers is not only a finely-wrought

and chilling crime story, but an intimate

look at the battles we all wage

with the ghosts inside ourselves.

Sara Herchenroether is a true storyteller.

I devoured this book.”
