'Sarah Waters's masterly novel is . . . gripping, confident, unnerving and supremely entertaining' Hilary Mantel
In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, its owners - mother, son and daughter - struggling to keep pace. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.
'Gripping . . . As well as being a supernatural tale, it is a meditation on the nature of the British and class, and how things are rarely what they seem. Chilling' Kate Mosse
'Waters has determined to scare the pants off her rightly devoted audience. She succeeds unequivocally. You'll want to sleep with the light on' Erica Wagner, The Times
'The Little Stranger is Sarah Waters's best book yet. For me it even beats Fingersmith, which is not easy . . . It builds in a slow, understated way . . . Best of all is the ending, quietly revelatory and chilling' C. J. Sansom
