9780099522959: The Possession of Mr Cave

Terence Cave, the intellectual owner of Cave Antiques, has already experienced the tragedies of his mother's suicide and his wife's murder when his teenage son, Reuben, is killed in a grotesque accident. His remaining child, Bryony, has always been the family's golden girl, in love with her cello and her pony, and Terence comes to realise that his one duty in life is to protect her from the world's malign forces, whatever that may take.

But as he starts to follow his grieving daughter's movements and enforce a draconian set of rules, his love for Bryony becomes a possessive force that leads to destruction and, ultimately, murder.

Review:

"Haig has hit upon a good idea structuring this as an open letter" ( Metro)

"A compelling book; a page-turner in the best sense of the word, in that most suspense comes from character" (John Burnside Guardian)

"Anyone who has experienced the loss of someone they love will try to relate to the tricks the mind can play as they try to make sense of what has happened. A story I couldn't put down" ( Essentials)

"A devastating portrait of one man's relentless self-destruction" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A dark, disturbing novel about a man who loves his child too much.
