OPTIONED FOR FILM BY LEGENDARY PICTURES (Interstellar, the Dark Knight films, Godzilla) "The Damned underlines Pyper's growing reputation as one of the most talented successors to the inimitable Stephen King." --Daily Mail (UK) Most people who have a near-death experience come back alone...but not Danny Orchard. After he survived a fire that claimed the life of his evil twin sister, Ashleigh, Danny wrote a bestselling memoir about going to heaven and back. But despite the resulting fame and fortune, he's never been able to enjoy his second chance at life: Ash won't let him. She's haunted Danny for twenty years and now, just when he's met the love of his life and has a chance at real happiness, she wants more than ever to punish him for being alive--so she sets her sights on Danny's new wife and stepson. To save them from her wrath, he'll have to meet his sister where she now resides--and hope that this time he can keep her there forever.
