Everyone knew bestselling novelist Cassandra Tipp had twice got away with murder.
Even her family were convinced of her guilt. So when she disappears, leaving only a long letter behind, they can but suspect that her conscience finally killed her.
But the letter is not what anyone expected. It tells two chilling, darkly disturbing stories. One is a story of children lost to the woods, of husbands made from twigs and leaves and feathers and bones . . .
The other is the story of a little girl trying to make sense of a damaged life lived in the shadows . . .
But which story is true?
Unsettling yet unputdownable, You Let Me In dares to cross the boundary between reality and somewhere else entirely . . .
What readers are saying…

Exploring the darker side of fairytales, it inhabits that liminal space where folklore and horror collide. A worrying tale where reality is filtered through the unreal, and the rational rubs shoulders with the supernatural, this is a beguiling story of love and revenge. -- LUCIE MCKNIGHT HARDY, author of Water Shall Refuse Them A glorious, pitch-black fairytale of a book. Lush, strange and defiant. As soon as I finished it, I went straight back to the start and read it again. -- KIRSTY LOGAN, author of Things We Say in the Dark Dark and immersive; a feast of storytelling that lingers long after the last morsel's been consumed. -- SAM LLOYD, author of The Memory Wood A bewitching, beguiling, and deeply unsettling tale of one woman's strange life. It will ensnare you from page one and keep you riveted until the end. -- CAITLIN STARLING, author of The Luminous Dead By the end of the third page I was not only hooked, but beginning to think that this might be the best book I'd read all year . . . creepy, pagan, detailed, entrancing. I loved it. -- JOANNE HARRIS, author of Chocolat and The Strawberry Thief
