Waterstones Says

Both deliciously sinister gothic melodrama and nuanced comment on extremism and prejudice, this 1930s-set chiller from the author of The Clockwork Girl focuses on strange goings on in a Rome residence under Mussolini's Fascist rule.

Waterstones Exclusive Edition with sprayed edge

Sometimes the secrets of the past are more dangerous than the present.

Rome, 1938.

As the world teeters on the brink of war, talented pianist Eva Valenti enters the house of widower Dante Cavallera to become his new wife. On the outside, the forces of Fascism are accelerating, but in her new home, Eva fears that something else is at work, whispering in the walls and leaving mysterious marks on Dante's young daughter.

Soon she starts to wonder whether the house itself is trying to give up the secrets of its mysterious past - secrets that Dante seems so determined to keep hidden.

However, Eva must also conceal the truth of her own identity, for if she is discovered, she will be in greater danger than she could ever have imagined.
