Cover Artist

Olivia Becente was never supposed to have the gift. The ability to commune with the dead was the specialty of her sister, Naiche. But when Naiche dies unexpectedly and under strange circumstances, somehow Olivia suddenly can’t stop seeing and hearing from spirits.

A few years later, she’s the most in-demand paranormal investigator in Denver. She’s good at her job, but the loss of Naiche haunts her. That’s when she hears from the Brown Palace, a landmark Denver hotel. The owner can’t explain it, but every few years, a girl is found dead in room 904, no matter what room she checked into the night before. As Olivia tries to understand these disturbing deaths, the past and the present collide as Olivia’s investigation forces her to confront a mysterious and possibly dangerous cult, a vindictive journalist, betrayal by her friends, and shocking revelations about her sister’s secret life.

“Twisty and electric… [With] short, tense chapters that glide between past and present, and often torque into hair raising turns." -The New York Times book review (Editor’s Choice)
"Crack open a cold one, pull on a well, worn band T-shirt, and get ready for some spine tingles." -Good Housekeeping
An edgy delight… Combines potboiler, beats with an off kilter, dreamlike atmosphere…[Wurth] agreed. He knew punkish outside a voice in American horror.” -Esquire
"Excellent." -Tommy, orange, Today
"Perfect new-wave Horror." -Silvia Moreno Garcia
"It's metal to the end, it's Denver to the core, it's Native without trying — there's blood, there’re ghosts, there’re roller coasters, and there're about a thousand cigarettes smoked. What else can you ask for in a novel?" -Stephen Graham Jones
"Family ties are made from rusty barbed wire in WHITE HORSE, a book that feels as welcome as a dark bar on a hot afternoon, and whose story burns like a shot of rutgut whiskey." – Grady Hendrix
"An unapologetic world of dive bars, dark, secrets, and true life for us. I became completely enthralled… Wurth [is] an exciting new voice in literary horror." Rebecca Roanhorse
