Gothic, creepy, witchy, asylums & hysteria... perfect blend of 17th & 19th Century superstition and repression. Such a gripping read 🥰

Imagine a book co-written by Agatha Christie & Haruki Murakami. This is that book. Wholly original. Never really had a clue what was going on but loved it! Plus I liked this bit of writing advice at the end.

I‘m hearing great things about this book by fellow crooked cat author Alex Macbeth. With a name like that I think he was destined to be a crime writer!! I‘ve snapped it up for only $2.99. Can‘t wait to get reading!
