9780007334766: The Stranger House

A stunning psychological thriller set in Cumbria past and present, from the award-winning author of the Dalziel and Pascoe series

They came to the Stranger House. And death followed close behind.

For over 500 years, the Stranger House has stood in the village of Illthwaite, offering refuge to all manner of travellers. People like Sam Flood, a brilliant young Australian mathematician, who believes that anything that can't be explained by maths isn't worth explaining. And Miguel Madero, a Spanish historian in flight from a priests' seminary, who sees ghosts.

Sam is an experienced young woman, Mig a 26-year-old virgin. But both want to dig up bits of the past that some people would rather keep buried.

As they uncover intertwining tales of murder, betrayal and love, they must put aside their differences in order to uncover the dark mysteries at the heart of this ancient place…

Review:

Praise for The Stranger House:

‘Grim, gory, fascinating, enraging and entertaining…The Stranger House combines deep moral indignation with an atmospheric evocation of the past and a fascinating puzzle element’ Independent

‘A mystery novel but far more than that. It’s gripping… Hill is wonderful’ The Times

‘Exhilarating… if this is what results when Hill enjoys a holiday from the norm, he should take a break from his Yorkshire double act more often’ Sunday Times

‘It’s a complex, multi-layered plot… it takes a master like Mr Hill to turn it into such an absorbing and atmospheric mystery’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Hill has pulled off a big psychological thriller, part ghost story, part historical novel, with passion and long-buried crimes at its heart’ Daily Mail

Praise for Reginald Hill

‘Few writers in the genre today have Hill’s gifts: formidable intelligence, quick humour, compassion and a prose style that blends elegance and grace’ Donna Leon, Sunday Times

‘The fertility of Hill’s imagination, the range of his power, the sheer quality of his literary style never cease to delight’ Val McDermid, Sunday Express

‘Reginald Hill’s novels are really dances to the music of time, his heroes and villains interconnecting, their stories entwining’ Ian Rankin, Scotland on Sunday

About the Author:

Reginald Hill, who died in early 2012, was brought up in Cumbria, and returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as ‘the crime novel’s best hope’ and forty years on had more than fulfilled that prophecy.
