“Stay close to me, Hugo. I’ve seen enough horror films to know the dog always gets it.”
Moving to the English countryside with her parents, Maisie immediately takes a dislike to their new home. Old, crumbling and covered in rotting moss, Caldgrave House is about as welcoming as its name suggests. But as she tries to get used to her new surroundings, Maisie at least has someone to keep her company.
Hugo. Her dog.
Unfortunately for Hugo, he’s already begun to notice some strange things at the house. Who are the mysterious scentless figures who seem to move around unseen by the others? Why does a broken-jawed woman keep going into Maisie’s bedroom? Who buried a copy of the Bible in the garden, with some of its pages turned upside down? And what is the cause of an ear-piercing scream that sometimes rings out at night when everyone else is asleep?
Before long, Maisie and Hugo find themselves trapped by the house’s vengeful spirits. Something awful once happened at Caldgrave House, something that left long-lasting echoes. And now an evil force is stirring in the basement, preparing to claim its next victim.
Expanded from the original short story, THE HAUNTING OF CALDGRAVE HOUSE is a horror novel about one girl and her dog, and about a vengeful spirit that has waited patiently for its next chance to feed.
