Waterstones Says

Penned by an art history professor and combining the rich atmosphere of The Secret History with the sinister thrills of Ninth House, Hays' debut about a mysterious group of art researchers and an invaluable fifteenth-century tarot deck is a mesmerising dark academia classic in the making.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for February 2024

Ann Stilwell arrives in New York City, hoping to spend her summer working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Instead, she is assigned to The Cloisters, a gothic museum and garden renowned for its collection of medieval and Renaissance art.

Drawn into a small circle of charismatic but enigmatic researchers, Ann happy to indulge some of their more outlandish theories, including the museum's curator who is fixated on tarot and the real possibility of predicting the future.

But when Ann discovers a mysterious, once-thought lost deck of 15th-century Italian tarot cards she finds herself at the centre of a dangerous game of power, toxic friendship and ambition.

And as the game being played within the Cloisters spirals out of control, Ann must decide who she trusts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Beguiling and atmospheric, an entrancing and gripping tale. - KATE MOSSE, author of Labyrinth

Elegant and atmospheric and suffused with brooding menace, The Cloisters transports us to the dark corridors of museum life, embroiling the reader in a twisting mystery, while also intelligently exploring the nature of fate versus freewill. - LUCY CLARKE, author of The Castaways

Glamour, power, seduction, ambition - The Cloisters has it all. I adored this deliciously gothic, beautifully written novel. - LOUISE O'NEILL, author of Idol

This is a modern, Gothic masterpiece. Successfully linking modern critical thinking with the divinity of the past, and human nature's desire to believe that there is something else out there. 9/10 - INDEPENDENT

The dark and enigmatic world of The Cloisters captured me from the off . . . a story of academic obsession, Renaissance magic and the ruthless pursuit of power. Captivating in every sense. - SARAH PEARSE, author of The Sanatorium

“Darkly deceptive and atmospheric novel”

"If death was in the cards, would you want to know?"

A darkly deceptive novel, filled with people and things not being quite as they seem. Definitely more 'Secret History' than 'Ninth... More

“The Cloisters”

I read this book and did not feel it was for me. I think the content (tarot cards) etc is not something I am at all interested in and found it a tough read. On saying this I did like the characters and the way they... More
