A dark story has been brought to terrifying life. Can the ending be rewritten in time?

A gripping contemporary Gothic thriller from the bestselling author of the Dr Ruth Galloway mysteries.

Clare Cassidy is no stranger to tales of murder. As a literature teacher specialising in the Gothic writer R.M. Holland, she teaches a short course on them every year. Then Clare's life and work collide tragically when one of her colleagues is found dead, a line from an R.M. Holland story by her body. The investigating police detective is convinced the writer's works somehow hold the key to the case.

Not knowing who to trust, and afraid that the killer is someone she knows, Clare confides her darkest suspicions and fears about the case to her journal. Then one day she notices some other writing in the diary. Writing that isn't hers...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Great on character and suspense' - Val McDermid

'Utterly bewitching. This atmospheric, intricate thriller, a pitch-perfect modern Gothic, chilled my blood and warmed my heart. As unforgettable as it is original.' - - AJ Finn

'Elly Griffiths writes with a sharp, smart eye and great elegance. This novel is compelling, intelligent and increasingly mesmerising.' - Peter James

'My heart is still pounding after finishing Elly Griffiths' The Stranger Diaries. As with her other books, this is fiercely intelligent, warm, human and at times, funny. The Stranger Diaries picks up where the great Gothic thrillers of the past leave off. At once a homage to that great literary form, and a re-imagining, it is goose-bump spooky, smart, and haunting, in every sense. I loved this book! And you will too.' - Louise Penny

'The perfect page-turner for foggy, wintry evenings.' - Fabulous magazine 

'Deliciously spooky and murderous, with charmingly quirky characters you long to meet.' - Hilary Boyd

“Good Read”

I enjoyed reading this book, there was suspense, murder and anonymous diary entries! Yes, something a little different, easy to read, which is something I like in a book.

“Great atmospheric read”

A cosy gothic read, The Stranger Diaries has something for everyone: a murder, many possible suspects, a sarcastic detective, a teacher (who may know more than she lets on), a historical short story and mystery, teens... More

“Great for the dark nights!”

A glorious spine chiller for the dark nights, and I didn't guess whodunit which makes it even better!
