When her mother dies, Mary Yellan makes the grim journey across bleak Cornish moorland to Jamaica Inn, the home of her Aunt Patience and her husband, Joss Merlyn.

On arriving at the gloomy, threatening inn, with the coachman's warning echoing in her mind, she finds her aunt a cowering shadow, and her uncle a hulking, vicious brute. Even more alarming, Jamaica Inn has no guests and is never open to the public. Mary finds herself powerless to help her aunt, and is drawn unwillingly into the misdeeds of Joss and his accomplices. Even more disturbing are her feelings for Jem, a man she dare not trust . . .

Jamaica Inn is a dark and gripping gothic tale that will remind readers of two other great classics, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.

“I shouldn't compare it to Rebecca but...”

I was expecting to love this book; I loved Rebecca, it's set by the coast, it's dark and intense, it involves smuggling. But it fell short and I think the main reasons for this were the irritating... More

“Unputdownable”

I read this in two days. Loved it.

An original and relevant book to those a fan of Cornwall based literature (like Poledark or Demelza). As myself live in the South West- why not try reading something a little... More

“Surprisingly fresh”

I bought this having really enjoyed Rebecca. Although it was written over 80 years ago, it is still surprisingly fresh. The plotting is superb and will have you racing through the pages as you try to work out what... More
