A married couple, with some initially undefined trauma hanging over them, move to the husband’s home town to both look after his ailing parents and make a fresh start. But there seems to be something that deeply affects the husband in the house they settle into. Something in the basement which is dark and threatening and likely to tear their lives apart.
This is an absolutely fantastic debut novel! A cracking piece of horror which roots its story and characters in an intimate reality and thus makes its scares all the more horrible. You believe in these people, and are fully immersed in their world, so it can’t help but have an effect when bad things happen to them.
I am a huge fan of Stephen King and in this book’s characters and setting and the amount of sheer scares, this feels like a novel The King of Castle Rock would be immensely proud of.
My new novel, EDEN ST. MICHEL is out next month. You can read an extract from it right here!
