The Dead House

Publisher: Orion

Twenty-five years ago, Elmbridge High School burned down. Three students died in the fire and one, Carly Johnson, disappeared. Now information is starting to emerge. A diary has been found belonging to Kaitlyn Johnson but there is no record of her at the school. Who is she and why does she only appear at night, while Carly is only seen during daylight? Is she part of a disturbed mind or is something paranormal going on?

The clever narrative is composed of police records, psychiatric reports, video footage and diary extracts, gradually revealing a web of conspiracy, deception and strange goings on at the school. This is an utterly compelling and creepy psychological thriller which has the reader gripped from the very first page.
