Waterstones Says

Splendidly sinister and shrouded in forbidding atmosphere, Hinchcliffe's assured second novel is a slice of wintry folk horror featuring witchcraft, curses and incipient madness.

Signed Edition - a standard edition is available here

Hare House is not its real name, of course. I have, if you will forgive me, kept names to a minimum here, for reasons that will become understandable ...

In the first brisk days of autumn, a woman arrives in Scotland having left her job at an all-girls school in London in mysterious circumstances. Moving into a cottage on the remote estate of Hare House, she begins to explore her new home - a patchwork of hills, moorland and forest. But among the tiny roads, dykes and scattered houses, something more sinister lurks: local tales of witchcraft, clay figures and young men sent mad.

Striking up a friendship with her landlord, Grant, and his younger sister, Cass, she begins to suspect that all might not be quite as it seems at Hare House. And as autumn turns to winter, and a heavy snowfall traps the inhabitants of the estate within its walls, tensions rise to fever pitch.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A beautiful, slow burn of a novel, eerie and shimmering in equal measure. The bewitching prose brilliantly evokes the bleak glories of a remote Scottish landscape, while the subtle shifts of plot and perspective lure the reader towards an unsettling denouement where nothing is quite what it seems. A dark uncanny read and all the more satisfying for that' - Mary Paulson-Ellis, author of The Other Mrs Walker and Emily Noble's Disgrace

“Dare you enter Hare House?”

‘There was nothing there, I thought. Nothing but the shadows of the trees,my own imagination. It was only when it moved that I could make it out, the silent hare, turning and loping away into the dark.’
