This clever and entertaining novel has much to say about female rivalry, mothers and daughters, and the creation of fiction itself * Literary Review * A darkly funny, enjoyable mystery * Observer * An atmospheric coastal setting, more than a dash of the supernatural - a love letter to Gothic ficiton. Perfect winter read * Sunday Mirror * A splendidly creepy Gothic tale ... Cliffhangers and Gothic tropes abound * Guardian * The perfect page-turner for foggy, wintry evenings * Sun * Written with Griffiths's usual warmth and lightness of touch but has a genuine creepiness that gets under your skin * Sunday Express * A beautifully turned chiller * Mail on Sunday * A deviously plotted modern-day tale that's rooted in a flesh-creeping Victorian past. Elly Griffiths' clever and original murder mystery plays deliciously on the nerves and kept me guessing until the end -- Lesley Thomson, author of The Detective's Daughter series My heart is still pounding after finishing Elly Griffiths' The Stranger Diaries. As with her other books, this is fiercely intelligent, warm, human and at times, funny. The Stranger Diaries picks up where the great Gothic thrillers of the past leave off. At once a homage to that great literary form, and a re-imagining, it is goose-bump spooky, smart, and haunting, in every sense. I loved this book! And you will too -- Louise Penny Elly Griffiths writes with a sharp, smart eye and great elegance. This novel is compelling, intelligent and increasingly mesmerising -- Peter James Utterly bewitching. This atmospheric, intricate thriller, a pitch-perfect modern Gothic, chilled my blood and warmed my heart. As unforgettable as it is original -- AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window Great on character and suspense -- Val McDermid
