A family divided by hate ... A house with a sinister past ... A game started and left unfinished ... Roley, Catriona, Katherine and John have unlocked the door of abandoned house. They have discovered the secret room, read the mildewed books and freed the eyeless dolls from a locked box. But they have no idea what they have awakened ...
In an abandoned house in the Lake District, a cupboard door opens into a playroom. Buried in dust is a collection of children's books in which the names of characters have been savagely crossed out. Here three children played a make believe game, sacrificing their dreams and wishes to make what they believed come true. But the game was never finished and in the woods behind the house something waits, hungry for the only food it knows. Now a new family has come to the house. Soon they will discover themselves in the game. But they do not know the rules. And they are the pawns, not the players ...Thrilling, chilling, and completely gripping.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
I thoroughly enjoyed it (Bad Blood)...She writes superbly and maps modern family with pinpoint accuracy but her real strength lies in creating an atmosphere of weird creepiness within the everyday, this allows her to slowly ratchet the tension to screaming pitch. This book contains moments of real terror. Respect! ...I thought it was superb. Celia Rees
