' The Sanatorium will keep you checking over your shoulder. This spine-tingling, atmospheric thriller has it all- an eerie Alpine setting, sharp prose, and twists you'll never see coming. A must-read.' Richard Osman EVERYONE'S IN DANGER. ANYONE COULD BE NEXT. An imposing, isolated hotel, high up in the Swiss Alps, is the last place Elin Warner wants to be. But she's taken time off from her job as a detective, so when she receives an invitation out of the blue to celebrate her estranged brother's recent engagement, she has no choice but to accept. Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge. Though it's beautiful, something about the hotel, recently converted from an abandoned sanatorium, makes her nervous - as does her brother, Isaac. And when they wake the following morning to discover his fiancee Laure has vanished without a trace, Elin's unease grows. With the storm cutting off access to and from the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic. But no-one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing. And she's the only one who could have warned them just how much danger they're all in . . . ____ ' The Sanatorium is an absolutely splendid Gothic thriller.' A. J. Finn 'Wow . . . So atmospheric, clever and compulsive.' Claire Douglas 'A tense and seriously chilling page-turner.' Emma Curtis 'Everything you could want in a thriller.' Simon Lelic 'Dark, suspenseful and downright chilling, The Sanatorium is a triumph.' Sally Hepworth Readers love The Sanatorium - 'Thrilling, chilling - a tingles down my spine type of read.' 'Imagine a universe where Agatha Christie and Stephen King collaborated on a book.' ***** 'Sarah Pearse wastes no time in ramping up the tension and is clearly destined to be a master of this genre.'
Sarah Pearse lives by the sea in South Devon with her husband and two daughters. She studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick and worked in Brand PR for a variety of household brands. After moving to Switzerland in her twenties, she spent every spare moment exploring the mountains in the Swiss Alpine town of Crans Montana, the dramatic setting that inspired her novel. Sarah has always been drawn to the dark and creepy - remote spaces and abandoned places - so when she read an article in a local Swiss magazine about the history of sanatoriums in the area, she knew she'd found the spark of the idea for her debut novel, The Sanatorium . Her short fiction has been published in a wide variety of magazines and has been shortlisted for several prizes. You can find Sarah on Twitter @SarahVPearse and Instagram @sarahpearseauthor
