Waterstones Says

Set in a hauntingly atmospheric small-town American landscape that seethes with suspicion, secrecy and hidden emotion, Kat Ellis follows one high school student embroiled in a spate of murders that threatens to blow apart her whole community.

From its creepy town mascot to the story of its cursed waterfall, Burden Falls is a small town dripping with superstition. Ava Thorn knows this well - since the horrific accident she witnessed a year ago, she's been plagued by nightmares.

But when her school nemesis is brutally murdered and Ava is the primary suspect, she starts to wonder if the legends surrounding the town are more fact than fiction.

Whatever secrets Burden Falls is hiding, there's a killer on the loose, and they have a vendetta against the Thorns...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Riverdale meets The Haunting of Hill House in this gorgeously gruesome tale of dark secrets, family feuds and local supernatural legends.' - Amy McCaw, author of Mina and the Undead

'A book to keep you up all night from the queen of creepy little towns. Kat Ellis wields an oppressive atmosphere like a sharply honed blade and creates suspense as thick as the mist on Burden Bridge. Brilliantly sharp with a cast of characters you'll love (or love to hate), Wicked Little Deeds is a perfectly blended cocktail of curses, suspense and superstition that had me holding my breath until the last page and will haunt me long after reading. There are eyes everywhere in Burden Falls - after reading this you'll be scared to close yours.' - Sera Milano, author of This Can Never Not Be Real

'Wicked Little Deeds is a book of nightmares - in the best possible way. Kat Ellis is the queen of small town creepiness and dark family secrets. Horrifyingly good fun!' - Kathryn Foxfield, author of Good Girls Die First

'So compelling and a brilliantly exciting, twisty ending. A masterclass in suspense.' - Tracy Darnton, author of The Rules

'A beautifully written story where the dark prose is as viscous and twisted as the rotten folklore of Burden Falls. A thrilling, eye-watering read.' - Cynthia Murphy, author of Last One to Die

'Wicked Little Deeds is such a creepy, twisty and atmospheric thriller. With a Stephen King-like eye for small town detail, Kat Ellis really knows how to get under your skin and drive suspense. I swear I saw Dead-Eyed Sadie in my window . . .' - Amy McCulloch, co-author of The Magpie Society

'Kat Ellis has done it again! With wry, dark humour and a deliciously creepy mystery, Wicked Little Deeds is as alluring as a Thorn Blood Apple Sour, and twice as entertaining.' - Dawn Kurtagich, author of The Dead House

'Cinematic, clever and creepy, with a main character that leaps off the page. Wicked Little Deeds ticks off all my moody thriller boxes.' - Goldy Moldavsky, author of The Last Girl

Praise for Harrow Lake:

'A captivating and creeping mystery full of brilliantly twisting turns and dark secrets' - Holly Jackson, bestselling author of A Good Girls' Guide to Murder

'If you like Stephen King, snap this up!' - Cass Green, author of In a Cottage in a Wood

'Scream meets The Babadook in small-town USA' - Kirsty Logan, author of The Gracekeepers
