BBC Radio Sussex Book of the Month

House on Cold Hill

BBC Radio Sussex Book of the Month for October is Peter James' 'The House on Cold Hill', chosen by East Sussex Libraries. 

Peter James will be in the BBC’s London Studio to join in with the  discussion about his book and answer listeners' questions.

Tune in on Wednesday 3rd October at 2pm to BBC Radio Sussex at 95.3FM/104.5FM to be part of the Book Club.

This novel by the acclaimed crime writer Peter James is a classic ghost story set in an even more classic location of a haunted house.  

This house, in the beautiful Sussex countryside, is to be the dream home of solicitor Caro and her family, but all is not what it seems!

Creepy and intriguing, this ghost story with a modern twist will have you gripped. Peter James, as always, delivers suspense and tension to make for an excellent read.
