Praise for The Hunting Ground

  • McNish is one of our most talented thriller writers, with an ability to make your spine crawl and your heart pound with his stylish pared down prose. - THE TIMES - Amanda Craig

  • A truly haunting story that stirs the hairs at the back of your neck. Fast paced and thrilling, the reader is hurtled along as the terrible events at Glebe House unfold. - CAROUSEL

  • A gripping and inventive ghost story for older readers in which the tension builds through apprehension, to dread and finally outright terror. This book will have readers looking over their shoulders for a long time after the last page is finished. - BOOKTRUST

  • The kind of book from which nightmares are born ... McNish has again proved that he is a master of dark storytelling. - THE BOOK ZONE

  • A masterly sense of revelation make this a seriously chilling read. - THE BOOKSELLER - Jake Hope

  • Beautifully written and truly chilling ghost story set in a creepy mansion and featuring lost children, fearsome hunters and echoing nursery rhymes ... I liked the creepiness and the tension, which ratchets up and up until its almost unbearable. - THE BOOKBAG

  • Fast-paced, thoroughly gripping with as many twists and turns and dead-ends as the dreadful East Wing itself... read it on a warm summer afternoon when you have plenty of company! - CORNFLOWER BOOKS

  • What at first glance appears to be a run-of-the-mill ghost story soon turns into a really creepy scare-fest. The use of a diary to give a back-story to the horrible goings-on is a stroke of genius and notches the fear factor way up high. - FLIPSIDE
