When the Dead Come Calling


Product Description
Product Details


'The author has created an intriguing plot with twists and turns underlaid with the supernatural and her descriptions of the landscape and changing weather, brooding and windswept, bright and sunny is an original metaphor for how the investigation is proceeding. This is a stunning, complex, out-of-the mainstream novel that's completely immersive.' -- Mystery People
'Sedgwick's writing is minutely observational, clever and warm. One minute you are transported by her descriptions of the landscape, the next she is raising the hairs on the back of your neck with her dreamlike descriptions of whatever lurks in the cave at the foot of the cliffs. It is her portrayal of the closed world of a remote community, however, that will chill you to the bone.' -- Scotsman
'A multi-layered tale from a range of viewpoints that reaches back into history and poses as many questions as it answers... the pages of When The Dead Come Calling fairly sizzle with stagmen, menhirs and evil carrion birds... a thumpingly good read shot through with some beautiful prose.' * The Herald, Scotland *
'The dense narrative moves back and forth, incorporating horrors from the past and fears and resentments from the present. The final twist works well and adds an extra layer to the story that is both surprising and moving.' * Literary Review *
'Helen Sedgwick weaves a clever combination of psychological suspense and low-key police procedural.' * Crimereview *
'Creepy, atmospheric and spine-tingling, When The Dead Come Calling is the kind of mystery so deviously plotted it left me reeling. Brilliant.' * Chris Whitaker, author of Tall Oaks *
'When The Dead Come Calling confirms what many of us already knew: Helen Sedgwick is one of Scotland's finest contemporary storytellers.' * Claire Askew, author of All the Hidden Truths *
'Beautifully written, beguiling and mysterious, the sort of book that would reward a second (and third) read. And a twisty plot with an undercurrent of supernatural malevolence that ticked all my boxes.' * Fiona Erskine, author of The Chemical Detective *
'By combining up-to-the-minute themes, well-tuned dialogue and warm and witty details of everyday life with a deep, impressionistic sense of dread, Sedgwick produces a mystery as addictive as it is anxiety-inducing ... deserves to be a stonking series with wide appeal that should run and run.' * Molly Flatt, author of The Charmed Life of Alex Moore *
'It's the poetic quality of her writing that makes this a moodily engrossing, and rather uneasy, opening to the series.' * Peterborough Telegraph *
'Helen Sedgwick's crime fiction debut When the Dead Come Calling is assured, engaging and beautifully layered. Intriguing characters meet contemporary issues, and historical whispers, in a haunting landscape. A must-read for 2020!' * Scottish Book Trust *
'An ethereal, supernatural take on the crime genre.' * Huntly Express *
'Helen Sedgwick creates a chilling sense of evil, of impending disaster with some exquisite writing... Sedgwick trusts her readers to understand and dispenses with tedious explaining: it's truly an exceptional book'. * The Bookbag blog *
