The House at Midnight

by Lucie Whitehouse

The House at Midnight Synopsis

From the beginning, the house changed everything... Lucas. Joanna. Martha. Michael. Danny. Rachel. Best friends since college, they are brought together at beautiful Stoneborough Manor when Lucas inherits it following the suicide of his beloved uncle. But over the course of a hot, decadent summer, what begins as an idyllic retreat from the pressures of adult life is transformed into a place where secrets are revealed, sexual tensions escalate and friendships and sanity unravel - beyond repair.

The House at Midnight Press Reviews

Deliciously sinister * Daily Mail * Murder and mayhem will keep you turning the pages long past midnight. If you liked The Secret History, you'll love this * Harper's Bazaar * Deeply spooky, compulsively readable * Time Out * Scary, sexy, sultry and shimmering * Daily Mirror * Gripping and tense, with an atmosphere which holds you in thrall * Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black * Atmospheric and compelling - impressive * Joanna Briscoe * A stunning piece of modern Gothic * John Connolly * Resounds with echoes of Daphne du Maurier... Like Rebecca, at the heart of this story is a house and a young naive narrator... Suggestions of the horrors that lie in wait are scattered through the book like a trail of breadcrumbs, leading you even deeper into the dark forest of Whitehouse's creation, at the heart of which lies deceit, cowardice and murder * Sunday Telegraph *
