THE CROOKED HOUSE BY CHRISTOBEL KENT

Her life is a lie

The truth is hidden within..

Alison is as close to anonymous as she can get with no ties, no home, a backroom job, her is a life lived under the radar. She’s a nobody she has no one and that’s how she wants it.

But once Alison was someone else once she was Esme Grace, a teenager whose bedroom sat at the top of a remote and dilapidated house on the edge of a bleak estuary. A girl whose family, if not happy, exactly, was no unhappier than anyone else’s or so she thought.

The one night a terrible thing happened in the crooked house, a nightmare of violence out of which Alison emerged the solve survivor and from which she has been running ever since. Only when she meets academic  Paul Barlett does Alison realise that if she’s to have any chance of happiness, she has to return to her old life and confront the darkness that worked its way inside her family and has pursued her ever since.

As she seeks to uncover the truth of what happened that terrible night, Alison begins to question everything she thought she knew.

Is there anyone she can trust?

This is a gripping thriller with one fateful night. One unthinkable family tragedy. One survivor.
