The Devil Walks

Publisher: Doubleday

Fine presents Daniel’s sinister narrative in a style which is true to its Victorian setting, with a plot that echoes Poe or Henry James at their most horrifically gothic, but also has connections with Burnett’s Secret Garden.

Daniel has spent his childhood in bed, believing himself to be an invalid, but when his mother is taken away, and he goes to live with the Marlow family he discovers that he is well, but others in his family are deeply mentally unstable. Taken then to live with his uncle, he discovers the family’s dreadful past, what keeps the evil alive, and the undying loyalty which can help him defeat it.

A chilling, compulsive horror story pleasantly free from vampires and werewolves.
