  • "'A must for James admirers and everyone else who appreciates fine writing and an original story'"

    Ruth Rendell, Guardian
  • "A convincing, compelling and icy reworking of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw, in which Sallie, an American girl obsessed by the subject of her PhD thesis, quits university to take on the job of temporary nanny in an English country house. Sallie is so manipulated by words, so deluded by her own emotional fantasies that she interferes with James's original narrative and screws it into terrifying reality."

    Beryl Bainbridge, Books of the Year, Observer
  • "'Chilling... Once you have read A Jealous Ghost, I'm afraid you won't be able to get it out of your head. Ever? Quite possibly'"

    Susan Hill, Spectator
  • "'Irresistibly readable and, finally, terrifying. Wilson turns the screw in masterly fashion'"

    John Sutherland, Evening Standard
  • "'Gruesomely entertaining ... intellectually fascinating'"
