The Dead House
Perched on an incline, with the land spilling down to a glittering sea, sits a ruined cottage. It calls to Maggie Turner, who is running from her own demons. But this house has a long, grim history, and has known hard living and far too much death. In some places, some things are better left undisturbed. A modern ghost story by a masterful writer.

The Dead House is a story of descent into madness, fuelled by the wild west cork landscape, isolation and memories from the past. A traditional yet modern ghost story, it moves from foreboding to unsettling to full-on heart-pounding. Full of atmosphere and a sense of place.
