A stunning psychological thriller set in Cumbria past and present, from the award-winning author of the Dalziel and Pascoe series Things move slowly in the tiny Cumbrian village of Illthwaite, but all that's about to change. Post-grad Sam Flood and historian Miguel Mercado first meet at The Stranger House, Illwaithe's local inn. Sam is there to find information on her grandmother, who left four decades before, while Mig's research stretches back to the English Reformation, four centuries ago. The pair have nothing in common, yet their paths become increasingly entangled as they pursue their separate quests. Together they will discover who to trust and who to fear in this ancient village where the inhabitants are determined to keep the past buried.

Praise for The Stranger House: 'Grim, gory, fascinating, enraging and entertaining...The Stranger House combines deep moral indignation with an atmospheric evocation of the past and a fascinating puzzle element' Independent 'A mystery novel but far more than that. It's gripping... Hill is wonderful' The Times 'Exhilarating... if this is what results when Hill enjoys a holiday from the norm, he should take a break from his Yorkshire double act more often' Sunday Times 'It's a complex, multi-layered plot... it takes a master like Mr Hill to turn it into such an absorbing and atmospheric mystery' Sunday Telegraph 'Hill has pulled off a big psychological thriller, part ghost story, part historical novel, with passion and long-buried crimes at its heart' Daily Mail Praise for Reginald Hill 'Few writers in the genre today have Hill's gifts: formidable intelligence, quick humour, compassion and a prose style that blends elegance and grace' Donna Leon, Sunday Times 'The fertility of Hill's imagination, the range of his power, the sheer quality of his literary style never cease to delight' Val McDermid, Sunday Express 'Reginald Hill's novels are really dances to the music of time, his heroes and villains interconnecting, their stories entwining' Ian Rankin, Scotland on Sunday

Reginald Hill, who died in early 2012, was brought up in Cumbria, and returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as 'the crime novel's best hope' and forty years on had more than fulfilled that prophecy.
