The Creeper Man
A second, chilling YA novel from the mistress of psychological horror.
When Silla and her little sister Nori escape London and their abusive father, Aunt Cath’s country house feels like a safe haven. The girls love the freedom they never had in their violent home. But slowly, ever so slowly, things begin to change.
Aunt Cath locks herself in the attic, pacing; every day the surrounding forest inches slowly towards the house; a mysterious boy appears, offering friendship. Nori claims that a man watches from the trees, a man with no eyes who creeps closer and closer . . .
The Creeper Man is Dawn Kurtagich’s second novel, published in North America as And the Trees Crept In, and sold following hotly-contested auctions in both the US and the UK.
UK: Orion (July 16)
