The Last House on Needless Street

by Catriona Ward

I haven’t read anything this exciting since Gone Girl – Stephen King

The new face of literary dark fiction – Sarah Pinborough author of Behind Her Eyes

Did any of you read We are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler?  I read it without knowing the big reveal and it was wonderful being taken totally by surprise!  I feel the same way about this book which is completely different but the reveal reminded me of the thrill of being totally blind-sided.  I’ve never read a Stephen King or anything bordering on horror but this book blew me away!   You need to read it without any spoilers so here’s the blurb to get you started.  Do try it and give me a call when you’ve finished it.

This is the story of a murderer. A stolen child. Revenge. This is the story of Ted, who lives with his daughter Lauren and his cat Olivia in an ordinary house at the end of an ordinary street. All these things are true. And yet some of them are lies. You think you know what’s inside the last house on Needless Street. You think you’ve read this story before.  That’s where you’re wrong…

This is the most gloriously complex, shifting story, deeply disturbing yet also, somehow, heartwarming. – The Guardian

I’ve never been more blindsided in my entire life and I am shook. – Shit Reviews of Books
