As temperatures drop and paranoia grows, is she right to suspect the children of manipulating her? Are malevolent spirits haunting the lodge? Or perhaps the never-exorcised demons of Grace’s childhood are being unleashed, to harrowing effect… With masterly command of tension, The Lodge will keep you guessing until its devastating finale.
