The atmospheric, chilling new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick The Loving Husband
Rose Bateman comes to an isolated house: a great echoing house alone on the Essex marshes, a house on what is almost an island at certain stages of the tide. A Victorian rectory, the church it once served long no more than a pile of rubble with rooms too big for its few inhabitants, a grand dining room, a drawing room, an overgrown verandah. A house where a woman has died, untended, isolated, in an upper room as the fog rolled in. A woman who died calling for help.
She has come to look after her dead sister's family - a widower and children that she has never met. But as things unfold, she realises not all is as it seems in the dark, spooky house - and doesn't know who to trust.
