Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Sci-Fi/ Fantasy/Horror), by Flora
A departure from his Scandinoir thrillers, The Night House is Jo Nesbo's first horror story, and despite the shift in genre this book still features Nesbo's trademark page-turning plot and morally grey characters. I don't want to share too much of the plot for fear of ruining the clever twists and turns within this book. But I would describe The Night House as a nesting doll of horrifying stories, with each twist making our protagonist's reality evermore perilous and terrifying.


In the wake of his parents' tragic deaths fourteen-year-old Richard Elauved has been sent to live with his aunt and uncle in the remote town of Ballantyne, where all is not as it seems.

Richard quickly earns a reputation as an outcast, and when a classmate named Tom goes missing, no one believes him when he says the telephone booth out by the edge of the woods sucked Tom into the receiver like something out of a horror movie.

No one, that is, except the enigmatic Karen, who encourages Richard to pursue clues the police refuse to investigate. He traces the number to an abandoned house in the woods. There he catches a glimpse of a terrifying face in the window. And then the voices start.

A twisted spin on a classic coming-of-age horror story from the Sunday Times Number One bestseller Jo Nesbo, author of the Detective Harry Hole series.
