The Stranger Diaries
Narrated by Andrew Wincott, Esther Wane, Sarah Feathers & Anjana Vasan / 10 hours 31 minutes
“I love Elly Griffiths' series so was thrilled to see she had a new standalone and I was not disappointed. The book starts with the haunting reading of a Gothic Victorian ghost story called The Stranger by R.M. Holland. The main character, Claire, is a high school Eng. Teacher who teaches at a school which includes the old Holland house and R.M.’s study which has been kept as he left it. Claire is also researching Holland’s life for a possible book so is intimately familiar with his work. When people in the English department start dying a line from Holland’s book – Hell is Empty - is left at the crime scenes. Not only does The Stranger have a major part in this fabulous modern day Gothic style mystery but so do Claire’s personal diaries. I loved everything about this book – the way it was told from 3 perspectives, the way Holland’s story and Claire’s diaries kept coming into play and all of the creepy hints at white witchcraft and ghosts. And I especially loved the voice of the reader of The Stranger.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
