Présentation de l'éditeur

With nearly a quarter of a million downloads so far, and an acknowledged individual storytelling expertise that has seen Hollywood recently take an interest in one of his novels, D. M. Mitchell pens yet another taut psychological thriller with a difference that twists and turns to its deliciously devious and unexpected conclusion. Discover for yourself why D. M. Mitchell is being hailed as one of the most exciting new writers of thriller and supernatural tales in the UK.


From reviews of The House of the Wicked:

'Impossible to put down...'
"Superb prose, and an atmosphere of impending doom. A quality novel from a very promising author."
"This book has had me in its spell for the past three days. It is fantastically written, full of twists and turns"
"I'm a lover of the classics and this was as well written and very dark, loved it"
"I felt like I'd lived in Porthgarrow and knew all the people. It was captivating and I just didn't want it to end."
"Please tell me this author has more books and is actively writing another!"
"Rev Biddle would make a great detective series in his own right."
"I was kept in suspense until the very end. The characters were believable and very well written. Really hated for the book to end"
"An excellent dark suspense novel."

“If you are not of a squeamish disposition, Mr Denning, I should like you to look at my collected images of the dead...”

1880: Stephen Denning is an artist arriving in Porthgarrow. It is an isolated Cornish fishing community, largely untouched by the modern, developing Victorian world, hanging onto its old traditions, superstitions and beliefs – a community that lives with a disturbing secret. So too does Denning.

He is a reluctant visitor, and though he is supposedly joining his one-time artist friend Terrance Wilkinson to form an artists’ colony it is circumstances that force him there. Denning is still haunted by the brutal death of a young woman in Brittany, and shouldering guilt for the fact that he covered up for Wilkinson when he suspects the man of having been been involved with the murder.

But Porthgarrow is haunted by its own demons and secrets. He learns about the savage murder of a woman by her husband Jowan Connoch thirteen years previously, and of Jowan’s son who has returned to Porthgarrow to uncover the truth and to clear his father’s name.

Yet it is far from over. Before long three more people are destined to die in Porthgarrow before the village gives up its sinister secrets, and Stephen Denning will learn of his own family’s mysterious involvement.

The house of the Wicked is peopled with larger than life characters – the powerful businessman Gerran Hendra and his beautiful daughter Jenna; the Reverend Biddle who collects photographs of the dead; Benjamin Croker, the journalist; and Tunny, the village wise man and healer.

From its atmospheric Gothic undertones to its shocking and unexpected end, ‘The House of the Wicked’ is D. M. Mitchell at his darkest and most imaginative best.

Some secrets will not stay buried...

What a superb book. I loved it. I had read Max and loved that also. I am looking forward to the next one. A totally absorbing book where you think you have it worked out and know how it will end - then you find you haven't worked it out at all. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Expect the unexpected 15 mai 2012
Par Ros Seddon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I loved this book. The author takes us back to nineteenth century Britain to Porthgarrow, a beautiful Cornish cove ravaged by a raging sea where ancient beliefs and folklore still preside over common sense and reason; where every man, woman and child live in fear of the spirit of Baccan. Denning and his friend, Wilkinson are artists; both great characters. We follow them through a superbly written veil of mystery and misadventure. Mitchell's descriptions are so vivid and colourful he really brings his characters and surroundings to life. The twists and turns are completely unexpected and by the time I got half way through the book I felt like I'd lived in Porthgarrow and knew all the people. It was captivating and I just didn't want it to end. Now I HAVE to buy `Max'!

This book went on and on with the descriptions! The writer gets an 'A' for setting the stage and being descriptive enough to help you imagine you're seeing the surroundings while the story unfolds, but after a while it became too much and I just wanted the book to be done.

I found this slow going for the first 25 or so pages but I'm glad I stayed with it. Lots of discription which is an intelligent change from the books I've read that are full of fluff dialogue. There are many twists and turns in the plot that are sometimes a stretch but the good characters pull it off. It was interesting how people believed the legend and rumor rather than the truth. Unfortunately this is often so true in the real world. It was an interesting and well put together read. I enjoyed it. Thanks D. M. Mitchell.

Par Rene A. Branch - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book was very hard to get interested in and understand just what is going on. After the first few chapters, the story takes shape. A small "backwards" village who believes in superstitions and stories from decades before. I will have to say, I was surprised by the ending which made the book worth reading.
