'Hell is other people.' A chilling, page-turning Hammer novella by the Booker-Prize-winning author of Vernon God Little.

The setting: a faded, lonely guesthouse on the Essex coast. Outside, it's dark, and very foggy. Inside there's no phone or internet reception, no connection with the outside world.

Enter Ariel Panek, a promising young academic en route from the USA to an important convention in Amsterdam. With his plane grounded by fog at Stanstead, he has been booked in for the night at the guesthouse. Discombobulated and jetlagged, he falls in with a family who appear to be commemorating an event.

But this is no ordinary celebration. And this is no ordinary family.

As evening becomes night, Panek realises that he has become caught in an insidious web of other people's secrets and lies, a Sartrian hell from which for him there may be no escape.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A thoroughly modern nightmare ... DBC Pierre stacks up the layers of horror with relish and skill - the Hammer label gives him a perfect excuse to leave no stop unpulled * The Times *
Pierre lets his baroque storytelling powers run riot in this latest addition to the excellent Hammer series ... exerts an uncanny, bone-chilling thrill * Metro *
Pierre's prose is a sumptuous, metaphor-infused confection ... Quirky characters and off-the-wall observations about modern life's obsession with electronic communication keep the book constantly entertaining. * SFX *
Winningly peculiar * Independent *
Beautifully written, creepy and funny ... A fascinating, occasionally chilling tale * The List *
