There's no such thing as an empty house...
Don't all kids think there's a haunted house in their neighbourhood?
Can you remember yours?
What if, as a child, you knew something bad really had happened in that house? What if you actually saw it? Then you tried to forget it for the next thirty years.
And then, one day, you had to go back inside that house?
Andrew Pyper's THE GUARDIANS is a ghost story for grown-ups. Prepare to enter the Thurman House on Caledonia Street.
You have been warned...
A splendidly eerie haunted house story, and a superb evocation of small town life. THE GUARDIANS gripped me from its opening line and never let go. - John Connolly
Everything you could ask for in a thriller. It's psychologically unnerving, moves like a bullet, and is fraught with so much tension you might crack a tooth reading it. Outstanding in every way. - Dennis Lehane
A perfect haunted-house story, a crisp, eerie October night of a book that had me in its clutches from page one. - Joanne Harris
THE GUARDIANS is a chilling, screw-tightening ghost story for grownups - it vibrates with menace while delving into the deep, dark matters of loyalty, lust and our own natural, nasty inclinations. A thriller with brains, heart, and no small amount of goosebumps. - Gillian Flynn
Ambitious... With a well-executed dual narrative, both past and present, strong characterisations and some truly arresting images, THE GUARDIANS is a compelling and genuinely creepy read. - Guardian
This is a dark, brooding, compelling story about the loss of innocence and the ubiquity of evil. - The Times
