Product description

Review

"House of Spines is a beautifully written tale, original, engrossing and scary. It's a wonderful mixture, a psychological thriller with a touch of ghost story (sort of), a dollop of the supernatural (but not really) and murder (perhaps), told through the vision of a druggie poet who hasn't taken his medicine and is therefore an unreliable witness (or is he?) ... Never mind what's true or false; the journey through ;House of Spines is a dark joy." -- The Times

"Prepare to have your marrow well and truly chilled by this deeply creepy Scottish horror. Things take a spooky turn when troubled writer Ranald inherits a mansion from an uncle he never knew. A complex and multi-layered story perfect for a wintry night." --Sunday Mirror

"Disturbing but compulsive." -- Martina Cole

"Vivid, visceral and compulsive." -- Ian Rankin

"Malone's effortless writing style confirms him as a sharp new voice in crime fiction." -- Anya Lipska

"Malone just gets better and better." -- SJI Holliday

"A deliciously dark tale about the things that haunt us, House of Spines is unexpected and beautiful, and has all the gothic elements of classics like Rebecca, and all the poetry and page-turning trickery you'd expect from Michael Malone. Wonderful." --Louise Beech

About the Author

Michael Malone is a prize-winning poet and author who was born and brought up in the heart of Burns' country, just a stone's throw from the great man's cottage in Ayr. Well, a stone thrown by a catapult. He has published over 200 poems in literary magazines throughout the UK, including New Writing Scotland, Poetry Scotland and Markings. His career as a poet has also included a (very) brief stint as the Poet-In-Residence for an adult gift shop. Blood Tears, his bestselling debut novel won the Pitlochry Prize (judge: Alex Gray) from the Scottish Association of Writers. Other published work includes: Carnegie's Call (a non-fiction work about successful modern-day Scots); A Taste for Malice; The Guillotine Choice; Beyond the Rage and The Bad Samaritan. His psychological thriller, A Suitable Lie, was a number one bestseller. Michael is a regular reviewer for the hugely popular crime fiction website www.crimesquad.com. A former Regional Sales Manager (Faber & Faber) he has also worked as an IFA and a bookseller.
