I could think of no better October book recommendation than Himself – a chilling murder mystery, a ghost story, filled with crumbling old manor estates, spooky small villages, a wise cracking old woman and plenty of humour and heart. It truly blew my I-don’t-like-thrillers mind.

Perfect to settle in with on a cold, October night.

It’s 1976 and Mahony is returning to the small Irish village in which he was born to finally solve the mystery behind his mother’s disappearance and his abandonment at an orphanage when he was a baby.

Mahony’s arrival in Mulderrig is met with a mixture of curiosity and open hostility. Those who don’t trust outsiders, those who want to forget the past, and those who are fascinated by this handsome stranger. He stirs up not only the local residents but also the local ghosts, because Mahony has an interesting ability … he can see and communicate with the dead.
