A chilling and vividly rendered ghost story set in post-war Britain, by the bestselling and award-winning author of The Night Watch and Fingersmith.
THE LITTLE STRANGER follows the strange adventures of Dr. Faraday, the son of a maid who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. One dusty post-war summer in his home of rural Warwickshire, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the once grand Georgian house is now in decline. But are the Ayres haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr. Farady know how closely—and how terrifyingly—their story is about to become entwined with his.
