Simone St James

A different slant on WW1, set in 1919, in a remote northern mansion turned into a mental hospital. A scary, page-turning mystery that explores the effects of shell-shock and physical injury on men locked up together. The narrator – a young woman with her own reasons for escaping normal life – seems an unlikely heroine, but her need for answers leads her to be heroic indeed. A fascinating cast of characters locked into a disturbing ghost story.
