A perfect atmospheric thriller for this Halloween . . .
A house stands alone in the woods.
Deep in the forests of Norway, Lexi finds a fresh start with Tom and his two young daughters, working as their new nanny.
The darkness creeps closer.
But Lexi is telling lies, and she’s not the only one. This family has a history – and this place has a past. Something was destroyed to build this house, and in the dark, dark woods, a menacing presence lurks.
Lexi must protect the children in her care – but protect them from what?
Atmospheric, gothic, spine-chilling, the new thriller from C.J Cooke will haunt you long after you turn the last page . . .
