Ghost Writer by John Harwood
Book DescriptionViola Hatherley was a writer of ghost stories in the 1890s whose work lies forgotten until her great-grandson, as a young boy in Mawson, Australia, learns how to open the secret drawer in his mother's room. There he finds a manuscript, and from the moment his mother catches him in the act, Gerard Freeman's life is irrevocably changed. What is the invisible, ever-present threat from which his mother strives so obsessively to protect him? And why should stories written a century ago entwine themselves ever more closely around events in his own life? Gerard's quest to unveil the mystery that shrouds his family, and his life, will lead him from Mawson to London, to a long-abandoned house and the terror of a ghost story come alive.

Asylum, Paperback (October 2014)
A young woman wakes in a strange bed. A sickly light filters through a metal grille. Doctor Maynard Straker steps into the room, and speaks. 'Have no fear, Miss Ashton. I am entirely at your service.' This, however, is not her name. And she should not be here - in the Asylum. She is Miss Georgina Ferrars, and she can prove it.

In this Victorian ghost story, Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story by his great-grandmother Viola that hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. More family tales show just how dangerous skeletons--and stories--can be.
