Devil By The Sea Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

The first time the children saw the Devil, he was sitting next to them in the second row of deckchairs in the bandstand.

He was biting his nails.'So begins the horrifying story of a madman loose in a small seaside town- his prey the very young and the very old.

Seen through the eyes of Hilary- a precocious, highly imaginative, lonely child- it is a chilling story about the perceptiveness of children, the blindness of parents and the allure of strangers.

As the adults carry on with their own grown-up capers, Hilary is led further and further into the twilight world of one man's terrifyingly warped view of normal life.

But will she have the sense to resist it?
