Summary

In this small but perfectly formed collection of supernatural short stories, Sophie Hannah takes the comforting scenes of everyday life and imbues them with a frisson of fear, then a gust of terror.

Why is a young woman so unnerved by the presence of a visitors book in her boyfriend's inner-city home? And whose spidery handwriting is it that fills the pages?

Critic reviews

Praise for the author: "Hannah - like Patricia Highsmith and Ruth Rendell before her - is an expert at exploring the delicate line between the ordinary and the monstrous." ( Independent)
"Sophie Hannah is genuinely Christie’s heir. Her crime novels have a deep vein of surrealism; not just in the ingenious plotting but in the seething menace lying behind the everyday." ( Scotsman)
