Product description

Alfie Mandeville doesn’t know why he’s been sent away to Scarbrook House, a sanatorium where the children of Victorian Britain’s upper class are hidden away. The only thing wrong with him is that he cannot sleep. But disturbing things are happening at Scarbrook – things that make Alfie wonder if he really is insane. A sleepwalker is found dead. A funeral is interrupted from beyond the grave. Worst of all, terrible creatures stalk the dorms at night, looking for a demon patient to drag back to hell, consuming anything that stands in their way. The only protection is to be asleep – but Alfie is wide awake. He must find the demon patient if he is to stay alive. But the true reason for his residency at Scarbrook is anything but a simple case of insomnia… A scream-in-the-dark psychological thriller by the author of Darkside – guaranteed to keep you awake at night!

    Really creepy and original

    This book was really creepy. I thought is was an original slant on a ghost story and a real page-turner. It was very well-written and I liked the Victorian element.
