An atmospheric Gothic ghost story, where The Silent Companions meets Daphne du Maurier in South America.

“A phantasmagoric mixture of M. R. James, The Shining and The Turn of the Screw set among the otherworldly Argentinian Pampas.” – EDWARD PARNELL, author of Ghostland

Winter 1913.

Ursula Kelp, a young English gardener, has come to Argentina to restore the gardens of Las Lágrimas. The long-abandoned estate lies deep in the Pampas, the vast empty grasslands of South America where the wind blows without end.

Despite warnings from the locals of terrible things that once happened there and the evil that lingers, Ursula sets out to her new post full of hope.

Yet when she arrives, all is not as promised. The garden is an untameable wilderness, the staff hostile.

Setting to work, Ursula is disturbed by the crunch of footsteps on empty gravel paths, while from the nearby forest comes the frenzied chop of an axe when no one is there. But it is only as she unlocks the secrets of the place that Ursula comes to understand the true horror she is facing.

For lurking in the trees – watching her, waiting for her – is a malevolent force that wants Las Lágrimas for itself.

The Haunting of Las Lágrimas:

Review

“”The Haunting of Lagrimas” feels like du Maurier and Márquez met in a bar in Argentina to tell ghost stories. And du Maurier won. A ghostly gothic tale of vengeance and the darkness only true curses can bestow.” – Angela Slatter, award-winning author of “All the Murmuring Bones” “””A gothic novel of great depth. From the windswept pampas lowlands, to the gardens of Las Lágrimas, this was wonderfully compelling. A total masterclass from W.M. Cleese!”” – Sam Hurcom, author of “”Letters from the Dead”” ” “A garden concealing dark secrets beneath its decay, mysterious ruins and a forest full of tangled pathways, all stranded amid the emptiness of the Argentinean pampas… The setting makes for a wonderfully gothic atmosphere in this intriguing historical ghost story.” – Alison Littlewood, author of “The Hidden People and Mistletoe” “A gripping supernatural tale in the Gothic tradition, set against the background of a sprawling Argentine estate… an impressive novel.” – Marie O’Regan, author of “The Last Ghost and Other Stories”, and editor of “Phantoms and The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women” Praise for W.M. Cleese “Clever, imaginative and, in its finale, wholly unexpected. ” – Economist “Engrossing and convincing” – Sunday Express, Books of the Year “[Cleese] doesn’t sacrifice characterization for action or plot… [his] attention to detail is manifest throughout” – Publishers Weekly
