Shocking, whipcrack-smart and utterly engrossing, Come Closer is a sleek and scary fable that will have everyone hooked.
Amanda loves her husband, her converted loft apartment and her job as an architect. On the surface she appears to have done everything right. So why does she feel so off-balance?
There's a strange tapping noise in the apartment but, as Amanda's husband Ed has pointed out, it can't be a mouse because they only hear it when she's around. Much to her husband's disgust, Amanda has also taken up smoking again. Even the friendly dog at the train station shies away from her these days. Could it be something to do with the lustful and violent dreams she's been having recently?
We could devote our lives to making sense of the odd, the inexplicable, the coincidental, but most of us don't. Neither does Amanda. After all, what we think is impossible happens all the time...

'What begins as a sly fable about frustrated desire evolves into a genuinely scary novel about possession and insanity. Hypnotic, disturbing, and written with such unerring confidence you believe every word.' (Bret Easton Ellis) 'The power of this sly little novel lies in its ability to do your thinking for you. It rationalises, spooks and psychoanalyses to divert the reading brain while sliding its icicle shard into the warm, pulpy flesh of your dark desires. And Gran's swift finale is very, very cool.' Helen Brown, Daily Telegraph 'It's deeply scary, blurring as it does, the bounds between everyday life and the completely unthinkable. Just don't read it alone in a house with noisy plumbing.' Fiona Hook, The Times 'Sara Gran's swift, stylish narrative quickly leads to a terrifying place where anything at all might happen.' Mail on Sunday 'Completely gripping, constantly surprising and truly disturbing, it is one of the most powerful books I have read in a long time. That is it about possession is very apt - it is utterly consuming from start to finish.' Zembla Magazine 'I read this brilliant novel in an evening, hooked from the first page.' UncutFrom the Author:
SARA GRAN lives in Brooklyn, New York.This is her second novel.
