The Hitchcock Hotel

The Hitchcock Hotel


Brought to you by Penguin.

Lilith Thorne, forty, rarely sees the light of day. She has spent the past three years in total isolation at Guthrie Hall. She doesn't see anyone, her groceries are delivered to the front gate.

She adores her house and takes comfort in her routine, eating the same carefully prepared meals day after day. And yet, she is lonely, and posts an ad on Craigslist for a companion.

Eighty-year-old Beverly Smith answers the ad. Fiercer than her age will allow people to believe, the two women couldn't be more different.

Where will this extraordinary friendship lead the two women? What happens to a person when she has withdrawn from society, and how does she learn to trust again? And what happens when that trust then turns into something darker?
