She’s out there. Waiting for you. A haunting read about witchcraft and superstition from Lisa Hall… ‘Creepy, atmospheric, unnerving and brilliant’ Will Dean ‘A proper nailbiter’ Mel McGrath ‘Spooky’ Louise Beech ‘I couldn’t read it fast enough’ Helen Phifer 'A chilling triumph' Fiona Cummins Is her family in danger? When Allie moves to a quaint old cottage with her husband, it’s their dream home. Nestled in the village of Pluckley, it seems a perfect haven in which to raise their two children. But Pluckley has a reputation. It’s known as England’s most haunted village. And not long after the birth of their new son, Allie begins to notice strange things… What’s the flash of white she sees moving quickly through the woods to the back of their house? And what’s the strange scratching noise coming from the chimney? As Allie discovers more about the history of their new home, she uncovers a story of witchcraft and superstition, which casts a long shadow into the present day. And not everything is as it seems. Her family might well be in danger, but it’s a danger none of them could have foreseen… Bestseller Lisa Hall’s The Woman in the Woods is full of creeping unease and nerve-wracking tension, and will have readers on the edge of their seats… Praise for The Woman in the Woods: ‘Creepy, atmospheric, unnerving and brilliant.

A classy thriller. Stylish, twisty and full of suspense’ Sarah Pinborough, No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes When Emily applies for a job as a housekeeper for widower Rupert, it’s a chance to start over – a steady job and regular money means she can work towards her own place, not sharing a grimy flat with old mate, Mags. As Emily gets to know more about Rupert’s world – how he likes his supper when he comes in from work, who his friends are – she can make sure everything runs like clockwork for him. Soon there’s a spark between them; Rupert likes Emily and invites her to stay. For good. To the outside world, they really seem to be a perfect match.

I had my theories – they were all wrong! Highly recommend’ Caz Frear, No.1 bestselling author of Sweet Little Lies ‘Think Rebecca, Body Heat, and Gaslight.

When Rachel wakes up in a strange room, the morning after a neighbour's party, she has no memory of what happened the night before. Why did her husband leave her alone at the party? Did they row? Why are Rachel's arms so bruised? And why are her neighbours and friends so vague about what really happened? Little by little, Rachel pieces together the devastating events that took place in a friend's house, at a party where she should have been safe.
