The Blackhouse, the second novel from award-winning writer, Carole Johnstone, is a gothic thriller and whodunnit set on an isolated Scottish island where nothing is as it seems, and shocking twists lie around every corner.

“Richly atmospheric and beautifully written, this is a mystery that takes you on a dark and unexpected journey, cleverly playing with myths, psychosis and the supernatural. Engrossing, evocative and chilling.”

C.J. Tudor, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man and The Burning Girls

“I loved Mirrorland.
Dark and devious…beautifully written and plotted with a watchmaker’s precision.”

Stephen King

“A dark, twisty and richly atmospheric exploration of the power of imagination.”

Ruth Ware
