A dysfunctional British nuclear family seek a new life away from the big city in the sleepy Somerset countryside. At first their new home, The Hollow, seems to embrace them, creating a rare peace and harmony within the family. But when the house turns on them, it seems to know just how to hurt them the most - threatening to destroy them from the inside out.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Truly frightening" - Fashionista Piranha

"Very rewarding." - Popcorn Reads

"While the story shares some DNA with the classic movie Poltergeist, Newman has his own story to tell, in his own way, and he has some fine surprises in store for his unsuspecting readers. Nicely done." - Booklist

"Kim Newman gets inside your head like pollen off a field of wildflowers; the pleasant idyllic turns full of suffocating dread. Thoroughly enjoyable, master storytelling." - Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of The Shining Girls

"Some very good surprises in store for his unsuspecting readers. Nicely done." - Booklist
