A Sickness In The Family Summary


A Sickness In The Family by Denise Mina

Meet the Ushers. The parents, Ted and Biddy. Grandma Martha. The three kids, William, Amy and Sam. Just a normal, middle-class family gathered around the table on Christmas Day. Until they start dying. Violent deaths. One by one. Is there a curse on their house, as a recently unearthed history of witchcraft in the area would suggest? Or has one member of the Usher clan declared open season on the rest? As secrets and resentments boil to the surface, it becomes clear that more than one Usher has a motive for killing off the others. But in the end, the truth turns out to be far more shocking than anyone in this ill-fated family could have imagined. On sale OCTOBER 13 * 5.5" x 8", 192 pg, B&W, $19.99 US * MATURE READERS

"Cunning, deft, and deeply disturbing. Mina's work plays with your expectations and messes with your head, winding its way along a truly dark path to an ultimately inevitable conclusion that will leave you walking with its echoes for days to come."
