WINNER OF THE 2015 COSTA FIRST NOVEL AWARD and the British Industry Book Awards debut of the year and overall book of the year, 'The Loney is not just good, it's great. It's an amazing piece of fiction' Stephen King Two brothers. One mute, the other his lifelong protector. Year after year, their family visits the same sacred shrine on a desolate strip of coastline known as the Loney, in desperate hope of a cure. In the long hours of waiting, the boys are left alone. And they cannot resist the causeway revealed with every turn of the treacherous tide, the old house they glimpse at its end ...Many years on, Hanny is a grown man no longer in need of his brother's care. But then the child's body is found. And the Loney always gives up its secrets, in the end. 'This is a novel of the unsaid, the implied, the barely grasped or understood, crammed with dark holes and blurry spaces that your imagination feels compelled to fill' Observer 'A masterful excursion into terror' The Sunday Times

Just as the value of a property may lie largely in its location, so does the power of a really good horror novel depend heavily on its atmosphere. And boy, does Hurley do atmosphere in this Costa Prize-winning novel set mainly on a bleak stretch of northern English coast. It’s a story about childhood, religion and secrets enclosed in a menacing setting where nature itself appears to conspire against the characters. A provocative and thrilling read, perfect for a dark winter evening.
