WW Norton

From Edgar nominee F. R. Tallis, a new novel of psychological suspense that reinvents the classic haunted-house tale

In the scorching summer of 1976—the hottest on record—Christopher Norton, his wife Laura and their young daughter Faye settle into their new home in north London.

The faded glory of the Victorian house is the perfect place for Norton, a composer of film soundtracks, to build a recording studio of his own. But soon in the long, oppressively hot nights, Laura begins to hear something through the crackle of the baby monitor. First, a knocking sound. Then come the voices.

For Norton, the voices mark an exciting opportunity. Putting his work aside, he begins the project of a lifetime—a grand symphony incorporating the voices—and becomes increasingly obsessed with one voice in particular. Someone who is determined to make themselves heard . . .



Baker & Taylor
A film soundtrack composer moves his young family into a faded old Victorian house in north London in 1976 and becomes obsessed with the strange voices he begins hearing coming through the baby monitor.

Ugh. This novel is a slow read. Although there were a couple suspensful moments, this book didn’t give me the thrill of a suspense/horror novel. The ending was horrible and incomplete and left me very confused and disappointed.
