Spooky Special: Three Halloween Reads

Posted on 29/10/2020

1. The Search Party

You won’t believe the twist in this compulsive new top ten bestseller from the ‘Stephen King-like’ Simon Lelic, screams the blurb, and this ‘hugely gripping’ (Mark Billingham) and ‘heart-stopping’ (Elly Griffiths) thriller is just the ticket for the spookiest day of the year.

You see, 16-year-old Sadie Saunders is missing. And five friends set out into the woods to find her. But they’re not just friends… They’re suspects.

This was never a search party. It’s a witch hunt. And not everyone will make it home alive…

Praise for the Leo Stanhope series
‘Alex Reeve has not only crafted a brilliant crime novel, but has created a character who has made me see the world with new eyes’ i

A gripping tale that twists like the dark back streets of Victorian London to a devastating conclusion, this book and its colourful cast will not let you go. Leo Stanhope is a wonderful creation, his world atmospheric and terrifying, and his own story as powerful and enthralling as the mysteries he investigates’ Heat

This Halloween… Hear, smell, taste Victorian London. See the gas lights through the fog, and read a “masterful Gothic mystery full of characters that would make Dickens jealous…” Kaite Welsh
