Overview
-

In this gripping thriller, two men with mysterious past lives meet in an English village with dramatic and violent consequences. Jonas Mortensen, a Norwegian, has been squatting in a house that actually belongs to the traumatized Adam Fletcher, an ex-Marine who inherited it during his absence on duty in Afghanistan. When Fletcher comes to claim it, and oust Jonas, they live side by side in an increasingly uneasy standoff. Then a local teenage girl goes missing. Everyone comes under suspicion, but especially Jonas, who has been helping out at the local youth club. As the hunt for the wayward girl intensifies, the fates of the two men become inextricably linked, and the past rears up to confront them both. "Deftly written and truly gripping thriller in which two men with mysterious past lives meet in an English village with dramatic and violent consequences. A skillfully crafted and inherently absorbing read from beginning to end, "A Private Haunting" is highly recommended."--Midwest Book Review "In this taut, terrifying tale of loss from McCulloch (The Stillman), readers are never sure whether one or both of his lead characters is a cold-blooded murderer, a victim of unfathomable tragedy, or perhaps both.... Surprising bursts of humor lighten a narrative that is otherwise suffused with death, sorrow, guilt, and madness."--Publishers Weekly
