“Gripping and thought provoking.” JAMES LEFANU
Ben and Maggie are devastated to
discover that their baby daughter,
Iris, has become profoundly deaf
after being exposed to the measles
virus. Their close friends, Isobel and

In the storm that follows, Isobel's world begins to unravel, and ties of family and friendship are put to the ultimate test...

The Crooked House
“A tense, gripping thriller, and utterly compulsive. I loved it.”
“The Crooked House is a brilliant read, dark and vivid...”

A girl whose family, if not happy
exactly, was no unhappier than
anyone else's – or so she thought.
Then one night a terrible thing
happened in the crooked house, a nightmare of violence out of which Alison emerged the sole survivor. Only when she meets academic Paul Bartlett does she realise that if she's to have any chance of happiness, she has to return to her old life and confront the darkness that worked its way inside her family and has pursued her ever since...
