It is Christmas Eve in a mountainous, isolated prison community, the day of the baby beauty pageant. Ava is the star attraction. She's six years old. Ava's older brother Jonny hears strange noises in the attic and sees his father go out late at night with a gun with their lodger, prison warden Leo. Daniel, a man who repairs sex dolls for a living, has just moved into the area and he is Ava's biggest fan. There are rabid, wild foxes roaming the area, terrorising the community. The action culminates in a bizarre fetish party at the local strip club, a fox cull and the death of Ava. Finally, the secrets of her life are revealed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

[Of `Murmurations' anthology edited by Nicholas Royle] There's a distinctly gothic flavour to this anthology. What with a sinister Icelandic raven "bloody-beaked and full of eyeballs", the "atrocious cruelty" of gannets who claim children as sacrificial victims, and the mercilessness of Daphne du Maurier's notorious birds with their innate "instinct to destroy mankind", it's clear that these creatures inhabit a dark hinterland in which our subconscious fears of evil are realised.

“I ... I ... Speechess”

Incredible. I was absolutely gripped by this book. I've never read anything like it. It was so deep and dark and there were so many elements to it, so many things to think about it. Whilst it's quite a short... More
