Paperback / Softback





Life with the Radleys: Radio 4, dinner parties with the Bishopthorpe neighbours and self-denial. Loads of self-denial. But all hell is about to break loose. When teenage daughter Clara gets attacked on the way home from a party, she and her brother Rowan finally discover why they can’t sleep, can’t eat a Thai salad without fear of asphyxiation and can’t go outside unless they’re smothered in Factor 50.

With a visit from their lethally louche Uncle Will and an increasingly suspicious police force, life in Bishopthorpe is about to change. Drastically.

Publisher Review

A sharp, bloody tale of abstinence and indulgence (and trying not to eat the neighbours) -- STEVEN HALL Beautifully written . . . I just loved The Radleys -- JO BRAND Haig writes in addictive, bitesize chapters that pump the action along . . . All vampire fiction has a strong sexual element, but in this book, the passion's not just for the pale-faced teens * * Daily Mail * * Delightfully new and, unusually, rather English . . . An enjoyably twisty and self-aware tale * * Metro * * Delightfully eccentric . . . a strangely moving portrait of a marriage * * Financial Times * * Haig's very original spin on the [vampire] myth is insightful, frightening and uplifting * * Guardian * * Red-blooded fiction at its most seductive * * Sunday Telegraph * * Great fun * * Vogue * * Highly recommended * * Observer * * Addictive * * Daily Mail * *
