9781910692349: The Unusual Possession of Alastair Stubb: A Gothic Tale

The turn of the last century and Theodore Stubb’s manor house resides in the quirky village of Muchmarsh. A renowned entomologist, he is often within the attic adding another exotic specimen to his extensive collection of insects. But Theodore is also a master hypnotist, holding the household in thrall to his every whim. Theodore’s daughter-in-law Eleanor is a haunted figure, believing that her stillborn child Alastair lives and hides in the shadows. Then she falls pregnant again, but this time by the hypnotic coercion and wicked ravishment of Theodore. A dreadful act begets terrible secrets, and thirteen years later the boy Alastair Stubb begins to lose his identity, and it is not long before mystery, intrigue and murder follow gleefully in his wake. This is gothic terror of the highest order, a dream-like and hallucinatory reading experience that promises to reveal secrets both disturbing and astonishing.

Review:

"This plummy pastiche of traditional gothic fiction is chock-full of the set pieces that make such stories so delectably dark."  —Publishers Weekly, 7/4/2016
