About the book

ARE YOU READY TO ENTER THE HALF BURNT HOUSE? . . . The spine-tingling new thriller from the internationally bestselling author of Richard & Judy pick THE WHISPER MAN

'The Half Burnt House is Alex North at his best - a writer who can terrify you on one page and break your heart on the next' STEVE CAVANAGH

'One of those books that made me wish I'd written it. North wields suspense like a blade. Breath-taking and terrifying'HELEN FIELDS

'Dark, gripping, and twisty' CLARIE MCGOWAN
____________

Katie Shaw always looked after her younger brother Chris - until she left him alone one carefree afternoon and he was savagely attacked. He hasn't spoken to her since.

Now a mother, Katie vows not to repeat her mistakes. Carelessness cost her one family, and she won't let it destroy another.

Then she receives a call from the police.

They're investigating a particularly brutal murder, in a half-ruined house that once belonged to a notorious local serial killer. The case has thrown up many unsettling questions, but only one prime suspect: Chris.

The detective wants Katie's help finding him, but she has only one thing on her mind: proving her brother's innocence, and finally making up for her negligence all those years ago. But soon it becomes clear that the killer isn't finished yet.

Which means that even as she attempts to save her old family, Katie is placing her new one in deadly peril . . .
____________

'North's poetic way with even the most grotesque of situations is always a joy. The Half Burnt House is his best yet. I love it' ALEX MARWOOD

'Thrilling, moving and utterly gripping; The Half Burnt House is a triumph' WILLIAM RYAN

'A masterfully creepy, atmospheric rush of a read that will linger with you long after you've finished the last page'NEIL BROADFOOT
