'SINISTER AND WONDERFULLY ATMOSPHERIC' B A PARIS

'TO BE READ IN A SINGLE SITTING, WITH THE LIGHTS ON' JOHN CONNOLLY


Beth Sheehan thought planning a future with her boyfriend Jason would be the answer to her problems. Now in her twenties, her wild ways have left her increasingly lonely, and Jason signals the promise of stability she's never had.

When an opportunity arises that will help them secure their dream home, he convinces Beth to grab it. It will only be a few months before he can join her to house-sit, rent-free, in a remote new build out of town.

But something desperate lurks at the heart of the estate. Strange things are happening and, as Beth's drinking worsens, new friends turn out to be prospective enemies. In a place where secrets abound, the most chilling one of all is about to be revealed . . .

A taut psychological crime thriller by a bright new talent, in which a change for the better turns into a nightmare of uncertainty.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A tense, atmospheric tale of fear and isolation - to be read in a single sitting, with the lights on * John Connolly *
Sinister and wonderfully atmospheric. The Estate will keep you reading until the early hours * BA Paris *
Eerie and compulsive - once I started reading it I couldn't stop * Andrea Carter *
Liza Costello's sinister thriller The Estate ... will have you on the edge of your seat. ... In a wonderfully nuanced piece of writing, the reader must read between the lines * Irish Independent *
Brilliant suspense-building ... excellent world-building and characters. The Estate frames the recession of 13 years ago as a monstrous thing, and it's impossible not to feel its resonance in the crises of today. ... It manages to tackle difficult topics - addiction, poverty, abuse - with grace * Sunday Business Post *
Liza Costello is a talented new voice on the Irish psychological thriller scene. ... Costello very much succeeds in ensuring that a dark and eerie undercurrent pervades this entire book right until the last page * Sunday Independent *
Costello creates a brilliantly creepy world in a cul-de-sac * The Gloss *
A truly thrilling and uncertain narrative * Irish Independent *
What I most enjoyed about The Estate is how it highlights what desperation will drive a person to. How far a person will go to feel loved * All About Books, Dublin City FM *
A brooding, suspenseful cracker of a debut * Westmeath Independent *
A twisty tale full of family secrets * The Examiner *
