The Visitors Book
by Sophie Hannah
on Tour November 1 - December 17, 2016
A collection of spine-tingling ghost stories from one of today's most acclaimed suspense novelists. In this small but perfectly formed collection of supernatural short stories, bestselling author, Sophie Hannah, takes the comforting scenes of everyday life and imbues them with a frisson of fear. Why is a young woman so unnerved by the presence of a visitors book in her boyfriend’s inner-city home? And whose spidery handwriting is it that fills the pages? Who is the strangely courteous boy still lingering at a child’s tenth birthday party when all the parents have gathered their children and left? And why does the presence of a perfectly ordinary woman in a post office queue leave another customer pallid and quaking with fear?

Review: There are four stories in this collection, as well as excerpts from two of the author's novels. My favorite story in this collection was "Justified True Belief," which I thought at the start had to do with a woman who was seeing ghosts....but I turned out to be wrong.
Again, all the stories are well written and suspenseful, with twists at the end. Perfect for a quick afternoon read.
