Night Guest

The Night Guest - Fiona McFarlane

Ruth has lost her husband, her sons are grown and moved away, she now lives alone in the house that was supposed to be her and her husband's summer house on the beach. She is 76 yrs old and is convinced she hears a tiger in her house at night.



Insidiously creepy, not ghost creepy but psychologically creepy. The plight of the elderly, living in and with their memories, the loneliness and the despair are all portrayed her. This book started out slowly, seemed straightforward but than takes a sinister turn. Very good book for a first novel, but tat the end I had many questions I would have liked to have answered. I guess that means I have to figure them out for myself.

ARC from NetGalley.
