Winter 1917.

As the First World War enters its most brutal phase, back home in England, everyone is seeking answers to the darkness that has seeped into their lives. At Blackwater Abbey, on an island off the Devon coast, Lord Highmount has arranged a spiritualist gathering to contact his two sons who were lost in the conflict. But as his guests begin to arrive, it gradually becomes clear that each has something they would rather keep hidden.

Then, when a storm descends on the island, the guests will find themselves trapped. Soon one of their number will die.

For Blackwater Abbey is haunted in more ways than one ...

An unrelentingly gripping mystery packed with twists and turns, A House of Ghosts is the perfect chilling read this winter.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A splendid tale of wartime skullduggery, featuring both kinds of spooks - perfect fireside reading' - Mick Herron 

'A thoroughly enjoyable novel that seemed to combine all my favourite things - history, crime, entertainingly spiky romance and an eerily evocative setting. An absolute treat' - Elly Griffiths 

'An atmospheric, hugely entertaining mystery that offers all the pleasures of a classic ghost story - with an appealing dash of romance. William Ryan is a wonderful storyteller and A House of Ghosts will keep you up reading (and shivering) deep into the night' - Antonia Hodgson *

'An enjoyable ghostly whodunnit.' - The Times

“Bewitching!”

In a House of Ghosts, the living await their certain fate. Death is the one thing that can not be avoided. Just so atmospheric! I was entranced and haunted by this gothic tale. Unnerving and compelling in equal measure.
