Winner of the 2015 Costa First Novel Award 

If it had another name, I never knew, but the locals called it The Loney - that strange nowhere place between the Wyre and the Lune... Dull and featureless it may have looked, but The Loney was a dangerous place.

The Loney is Andrew Michael Hurley’s decidedly unsettling fictional debut, one of those bookseller word-of-mouth novels that gathered early momentum by the sheer merit of its writing. 

With Lancashire’s wind-scorched coast as its setting, Hurley fuses faith, superstition and fear into a potent cocktail of family drenched in unsaid secrets and a constant, gnawing doubt that something strange and dangerous is afoot: it surprised none of us here to watch The Loney sail on to bag 2016’s Costa Book of the Year.

Please note that this edition is supplied in both black and white cover variants and your copy will be randomly assigned.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An amazing piece of fiction.'" - Stephen King

"Here is the masterpiece by which Hurley must enter the Guild of the Gothic: it pleases me to think of his name written on some parchment scroll, alongside those of Walpole, Du Maurier, Maturin and Jackson." - The Guardian

"An extraordinarily haunted and haunting novel.'"- The Daily Telegraph

“Lives up to the hype”

I wanted to read this book after hearing other booksellers at a convention talking about it. It's not the genre I would usually go for but after all the hype I just had to get my hands on it!
