Publisher's Summary

A pacy, chilling psychological thriller, set to reinvent the genre. 
It begins, they say, with a woman screaming.... 
On a remote Scottish island, the McBride house stands guard over its secrets. A century ago, a young widow and her son died mysteriously there; just last year a local boy, visiting for a dare, disappeared without a trace. 
For Zoe Adams, newly arrived from America, the house offers a refuge from her failing marriage. But her peaceful retreat is disrupted by strange and disturbing events: nighttime intrusions; unknown voices; a constant sense of being watched. 
The locals want her to believe that these incidents are echoes of the McBrides' dark past. Zoe is convinced the danger is closer at hand and all too real - but can she uncover the truth before she is silenced?

Critic Reviews

"Creepy, clever, atmospheric, a fabulous Gothic thriller." (Kate Mosse)
"Pure edge-of-the-seat stuff: a fantastically entertaining, yet deeply unsettling read." (Julie Myerson)
"Forget sleep - this broodingly creepy gothic tale of love, lust and loss on a remote Scottish island kept me awake most of the night, partly from fear, but mostly because I couldn't put it down." (Fiona Neill, best-selling author of The Betrayals)

Had to give up

30 minutes in and I’ve had to give up because of the narration. The accent - Scottish? Irish? nothing I’ve ever heard before - is so grating and unbelievable I can’t bear another minute. When the narrator isn’t wrestling with the accents, it’s fine.
If you are considering this book, avoid the audio version.
