The Crime Stack: The Shadow House by Anna Downes

Welcome to the Crime Stack for June. Affirm Press has kindly offered 20 copies of The Shadow House, by Anna Downes.

It lures you in and keeps you on edge at every turn.

When single mother Alex flees her abusive relationship and moves with her teenage son and baby girl to a rural ecovillage, she thinks she’s made the best decision of her life. Pine Ridge is idyllic: the off-grid lifestyle and remote location are perfect, and the community is welcoming – mostly. Charmed by its magnetic founder, Kit, and the natural beauty of the former farmland, Alex settles easily into her new home.

But her arrival at Pine Ridge disturbs barely submerged secrets, and she’s shaken by a series of eerily familiar events that seem to be connected to the abandoned farmhouse on the hill. Alex realises that, in escaping her own shadowy past, she may have stumbled into someone else’s. And this time, there may be nowhere to run.

‘Anna Downes has got what it takes. The Shadow House is a smart and twisty thriller, with each beat of the plot timed to perfection.’ – Kate Mildenhall
