Coming Soon to a Book Store Near You - The Voices; F. R. Tallis

 Here's my "Coming Soon to a Book Store Near You" pick for today.  What do you think about this novel -- would you try it?
The Voices; F.R. Tallis
Pegasus - December 2014

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 since records began—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 to one side, 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 . . .


  1. We would like that one I do believe!

  2. I had not heard of this book before, Diane. It sounds good and scary!

  3. I ordered the British edition of this book a while back, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Sounds so creepy!
