Something wicked this way comes…

She thought she’d be safe in the country, but you can’t escape your own nightmares, and Lis London dreams repeatedly that someone is trying to kill her.

Lis thinks she’s being paranoid – after all who would want to murder her? She doesn’t believe in the local legends of witchcraft. She doesn’t believe that anything bad will really happen to her. You never do, do you? Not until you’re alone in the woods, after dark – and a twig snaps…

Hollow Pike – where witchcraft never sleeps.


Hollow Pike will captivate readers from the opening page ... thrilling throughout, with a tremendous climax. Thoroughly recommended.

- Carousel

Gripping from the start with cliffhanging chapter endings and loads of twists and turns in the plot.

- Burton Mail

Dawson has wrought a masterful, thrilling tale ... heralds the arrival of a major new talent on the scene.

- Telegraph and Argus

Exploring themes of bullying, obsession, hysteria and marginalisation, this thriller truly deserves the epithet 'page turner'. Cleverly plotted and beautifully characterised, it is dark, scary and utterly compelling with an ending as unexpected as it is terrifying.

A good read for dark winter nights.
