How could someone without memory be real at all? Without a memory what kind of a person was she? She was living in a limbo land. She was like a ghost.'
A young woman is washed up onto the shores of a remote lighthouse island. She does not know who she is or how she got there. She has no memory. The keeper of the lighthouse and his assistant take her in and feed and clothe her. In classic ghost-story manner, she is not all what she seems and neither is the calm and peaceful island.Set at the time when the slave trade was at its height in the 1860s, Pharos is a vivid, expressionistic ghost story, a wonderful and haunting tale.

MEDIA REVIEWS
PHAROS will entertain and intrigue. * SUNDAY HERALD *
Her writing is spare but elegant, the plot somewhat disturbing and it has a twist in the tale that subverts the reader's preconceptions. * IRELAND ON SUNDAY *
It is unlikely you'll put PHAROS down for the last time without being haunted into the wee small hours. * THE LADY *
Settle down to enjoy knolwdgeable, no-nonsense prose, unusual and original characters and settings, and a plot which is unpredictable, often shocking, but always true to itself. * INDEPENDENT *

“Excellent paranormal mystery”

This is the third Alice Thompson book I've read, the others being Salt's excellent Burnt Island and The Book Collector. Pharos takes a similar path to The Book Collector, with its young female protagonist,... More
