9780751556995: The Crooked House

One fateful night. One unthinkable family tragedy. One survivor. This is Alison's story.

Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train and Apple Tree Yard, this stunning psychological thriller follows one woman's search for the truth about her family history.

Alison is as close to anonymous as she can get: with no ties and a backroom job, hers is a life lived under the radar. But once Alison was someone else: once she was Esme, a teenager whose bedroom sat at the top of a remote house on a bleak estuary. A girl whose family, if not happy, exactly, was no unhappier than anyone else's - or so she thought.

Then one night violence was unleashed in the crooked house, in a nightmare that only Alison survived and from which she's been running ever since. Only when she falls for the charismatic Paul does Alison realise that to have any chance of happiness, she must return to her old life and face a closed community full of dark secrets.

As she seeks to uncover the truth of what happened that terrible night, Alison begins to question everything she thought she knew. Is there anyone she can trust?

Thrilling. ( The Sun)

Beware sleep deprivation. Christobel Kent is one mesmerising writer. A brilliant thriller. ( Alex Marwood, author of THE WICKED GIRLS)

A gripping story of dark secrets. ( Image magazine)

[A] dark psychologically chilling tale...The spin of wheels within wheels is mesmerising, ratcheted when Alison revisits the house of old, dark secrets, and the threads of false memory in her life of anonymity are unpicked. Nothing is as it seemed to be. ( SAGA magazine)

Oh my goodness - what a book! So beautifully tense... just glorious. ( Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO)

Tense, menacing, surprising and clever. ( Morning Star)

Gripping. ( Hello magazine)

Terrific, powerful and unsettling; I read it with my heart in my mouth. ( Jill Dawson, author of THE TELL TALE HEART)

Beautiful, atmospheric writing with a perfectly unravelled mystery. ( SJI Holliday, author of BLACK WOOD)

A spine-tingling and haunting tale. ( Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

A psychological thriller of the highest quality. ( Absolutely magazine)

Creepily claustrophobic, the story builds to a thrilling climax, and combined with Kent's surefooted plotting, atmospheric prose and firm grasp pf psychology, the novel is a rare triumph. However it's the kind of book that comes with a serious warning...[it's] impossible to put down. ( Cheltenham Standard)

Gripped from the first page, the reader is taken on a tense, menacing and atmospheric journey culminating in a startling revelation. ( Good Book Guide)

A darkly impressive novel...The sinister, windswept town of Saltleigh is a brooding backdrop, and the characters are sharply drawn. ( The Lady)
