The Uninvited Guests

by Sadie Jones

Fascinating account of the Torrington family's near destruction; an elegant mix of ghost story and Edwardian costume drama that never fails to surprise. Emerald's 20th birthday party takes a completely unexpected turn as the house and party are invaded by mysterious travellers in various decomposed states. Young 'Smudge' and her Great Undertaking lend an unusual twist and humour to a surprising but rather menacing evening and night.

Extract

Safely ensconced in her room with Lady, behind her stout, locked door, restored by smelts and grateful for the continued distraction of the demanding survivors, Smudge applied herself to the animal's portrait with renewed vigour.
