Ghost story and psychological thriller, The Dogs will keep readers nervous and guessing to the very end. Cameron and his mum have been on the run from his violent father nearly all his life, moving from town to town, trying to leave no trace of themselves when they go. In Wolf Hollow, the run-down old farm house they move into has secrets of its own. Is Cameron seeing the ghosts of previous occupants, or is he going mad? Which is scarier: things that happened long ago, or the shadowy presence of his father? Stratton ups the tension as events head towards a terrifying climax. A truly eerie and unsettling story. ~ Andrea Reece
