Waterstones Says

Channelling the malevolent spirit of And Then There Were None, Ryan’s spine-tingling spooky whodunit sees a spiritualist meeting on a remote island descend into murder and madness. Finely tuned into the gothic sensibility, House of Ghosts is a twisty chiller that will get under your skin and into your head.

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 convincingly atmospheric sense of being marooned on an island, totally cut off by a raging storm and fearing for your safety in such a hostile environment ... and I did love the dramatic cover of the book! - Nudge Books

Deftly builds tension to a climax with a twist...a vivid and atmospheric narrative which draws together its disparate elements and cast of characters. - www.stuff.co.nz

“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.
