Treading the fine line where the supernatural ends and real human monstrosity begins, GAMES FOR DEAD GIRLS is a haunting, dark read, perfect for fans of Jennifer Hillier and Alex North.

Hithechurch, a peaceful, out-of-the-way seaside town in Kent.

When Charlie was young, she would visit with her family, making friends and playing down by the beach.

Their favourite was telling scary stories; silly games of make-believe that would twist and weave old wives’ tales. They would laugh and try to shake off the shiver than ran down their backs and made the hair on their necks stand on end.

But what if it wasn’t all make-believe?

Years later Charlie returns to Hithechurch with her niece, researching a book on folklore. As she delves deeper into the history of the area, she finds something disturbing: a decades long history of women going missing. Could the stories be true?

Charlie is about to find out some games are deadlier than others.

Publisher Review

Praise for GAMES FOR DEAD GIRLS 'I've always been a big fan of Jen's writing, and loved how she melded folklaw, crime and horror into DOG ROSE DIRT. GAMES FOR DEAD GIRLS takes that up to another level!' James Oswald, the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of the INSPECTOR MCLEAN series 'Not only has Jen Williams found the line where ghost stories tip into true crime, where phantoms become flesh and blood, but she crosses it into something far more frightening. Games for Dead Girls is a testament to how truth will always be more terrifying than fiction, and where, at the root of every Bloody Mary, there's a young women dying to be heard.' Clay McLeod Chapman, author of GHOST EATERS 'A dark and unsettling story that gets under your skin' Laure Van Rensburg,author of NOBODY BUT US
