The Haunting of Las Lágrimas:
“”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
