What to expect

The incredible new novel from C.S. Green – featuring Detective Rose Gifford

Something terrible happened in that house…

‘An enthralling, multi-layered crime novel that fans of Peter James and Lisa Jewell will adore’ MARK EDWARDS

‘This dark and tightly plotted supernatural thriller was a joy to read… Superb stuff.’ Netgalley Reviewer

A house with a history. A boy with a grudge. And a detective who will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Gregory knows something is wrong with his house. His parents don’t believe him, but he can feel it – and he’s frightened.

DC Rose Gifford is called out after neighbours report a series of disturbances at the property, and she can feel it too. She knows Gregory and his family are in danger, and she knows that it will be down to her specialist supernatural crimes team to uncover the truth.

Something terrible happened at number 42 Wyndham Terrace. And it’s Rose’s job to find out what.

A twisty, clever read for fans of Ben Aaranovitch and Jane Casey.
