The House of Footsteps

Durata: 11h 35m

If you loved The Haunting of Hill House, welcome to Thistlecrook… If you loved The Haunting of Hill House, welcome to Thistlecrook… It’s 1923 and at Thistlecrook House, a forbidding home on the Scottish border, the roaring twenties seem not to have arrived. But Simon Christie has – a young man who can’t believe his luck when he gets a job cataloguing the infamous art collection of the Mordrake family. Yet from the moment he gets off the train at the deserted village station he can’t shift a headache and a sense that there’s more to the House and its gruesome selection of pictures. Simon’s host is glad of his company, but he gets the feeling the house is not so welcoming. As his questions about the Mordrakes grow, he finds answers in surprising places. But someone is not pleased that old secrets are stirring. As night falls each evening, and a growing sense of unease roils in the shifting shadows around him, Simon must decide what he can trust and ask if he can believe what he sees in the dusk or if his mind is poisoned by what has happened before in this place between lands, between light and dark. "I don't believe in reincarnation, but Mathew West seems the very spirit of M.R. James. With urbane wit and an ever-lurking dread, The House of Footsteps broods to an unsettling climax, choking with atmosphere." A.J. West, author of The Spirit Engineer Even the night can’t hide some secrets... Mathew West grew up in Aberdeenshire (and very briefly New Zealand). After a spell as a music journalist he now lives and works in Edinburgh as a civil servant. A keen horror film buff, his novels are born out of love of classic gothic fiction seen through modern eyes. Even the night can’t hide some secrets... • A chilling ghost story that combines the atmosphere of The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle the suspense of Susan Hill • A debut from a young Edinburgh-based writer with great potential for Scottish coverage • From Knives Out to The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor, the enduring appeal of a truly chilling ghost story shows no sign of letting up Competition: The;Whistling;Haunting Season;Lighthouse Witches;Familiars;Glass Woman;Bone China;Ghost Tree;Woman in Black;House by the Sea;Last of the Moon Girls;Wakenhyrst. by:Rebecca Netley;Laura Purcell;Bridget Collins;Susan Hill;Stacey Halls;Diane Setterfield; Michelle Paver; Anita Frank; Stuart Turton
