Cover for The Waking that Kills by Stephen Gregory to be published by Solaris

The ghosts that haunt us are not always strangers

When his elderly father suffers a stroke, Christopher Beale returns to England. He has no home, no other family. Adrift, he answers an advert for a live-in tutor for a teenage boy. The boy is Lawrence Lundy, who possesses the spirit of his father, a military pilot - missing, presumed dead. Unable to accept that his father his gone, Lawrence keeps his presence alive, in the big old house, in the overgrown garden.

His mother, Juliet, a few, scatty widow living on her nerves, keeps the boy at home, away from her other children, away from the world. And in the suffocating heat of a long summer, she too is infected by the madness of her son. Christopher Beale becomes entangled in a strange household… enmeshed in the oddness of the boy and his fragile mother. Only by forcing the boy to release the spirit of his father can there be any escape from the haunting.

A dark novel of possession.

I have not read this book, but the pitch makes it sound very interesting.

I really like what AD Ben Smith did with the type here, really works well with the illustration.
