Product description


A very impressive debut. The story is played out in an unsettling narrative that makes you want to read on to the end. (Michael Frayn)

An incredible read. Clever, chilling, I couldn't put it down (Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble With Goats and Sheep )

A gripping and impressive story of mounting terror. Spellbinding (John Carey)

The Upstairs Room is the real thing. Frightening and clever and full of atmosphere (Susan Hill, author of The Woman In Black)

A brilliantly observed and utterly unnerving ghost story of contemporary feminism and the housing crisis. Murray-Browne turns the screws so cleverly that the moment you long to break the novel's breathless grip is also the moment you recognize that its world is actually your own. (Anna Smaill, author of The Chimes)

Kate Murray-Browne’s debut novel is a property horror story ... compulsively readable. Murray-Browne commands a lucid and reasonable prose, just the way to conduct you unprotestingly into the midst of this deranging subject matter. She is sharply observant but never overwrites ― and on the few occasions when she offers a plain simile it’s surprisingly funny as a result. Such cool writing looks easy. It’s not. Murray-Browne is an expert editor and it shows ... The Upstairs Room is engrossing. A fine holiday read. Far from London. (Evening Standard)

Effortless . . . a chilling tale of just how badly wrong life can go when you mortgage yourself to the hilt. (The Times)

Kate Murray-Browne’s The Upstairs Room has all the ingredients for a perfect thriller. An eerie Victorian house, writing appearing and disappearing on walls, a vanishing child – and knowing all that, it’s one of the few times I’ve begged for an advance copy from the publisher, because I couldn’t wait for it to come out. The story is so immersive, so addictive, it’s the kind of book you continue to read as you are eating, walking around the house, and pretending to hold conversations with other people on the telephone. (Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble With Goats and Sheep)
