Times Book of the Month: a spine-chilling classic festive Christmas crime mystery from beloved author of Waterstones Thriller of the Month, Uncle Paul.

'Brilliant ... Such clever, witty writing.' Elly Griffiths
'Fremlin packs a punch.' Ian Rankin
'A master of suspense.' Janice Hallett
'Glorious ... Got me hooked.' Ruth Rendell

Jolted from sleep by the ringing of the telephone, Imogen stumbles through the dark, empty house to answer it. At first, she can't quite understand the man on the other end of the line. Surely he can't honestly be accusing her of killing her husband, Ivor, who died in a car crash barely two months ago.

As the nights draw in, Imogen finds her home filling up with unexpected guests, who may be looking for more than simple festive cheer. Has someone been rifling through Ivor's papers? Who left the half-drunk whiskey bottle beside his favourite chair? And why won't that man stop phoning, insisting he can prove Imogen's guilt ..?

'Beautifully written . . . Fremlin's sly, subtly feminist take on the ghost story is a gem.' Sunday Times
'Reads as if it were written yesterday ... Makes you laugh, smile or wince in recognition on virtually every page ... This clever, clear-eyed mystery is the perfect antidote to the often fake bonhomie of the festive season.' Times Book of the Month
'Barbara Pym with arsenic.' Clare Chambers
'A genius.' Nicola Upson

“A classic thriller with a nod to Hitchcock”

What jumped out to me about The Long Shadow first was the traditional writing style, it is a book very much of its time, the 1960's.  This is in no way a bad thing, I love a traditional book and it's more... More
