Partly narrated by a cat, it won the August Derleth award for best horror novel at the British Fantasy awards, gained rave reviews from critics, and was praised by Stephen King as a ‘true nerve-shredder that keeps its mind-blowing secrets to the very end.’ Ward’s latest novel Sundial is a stunning thriller exploring the toxicity of the mother-daughter bond, with numerous twists to shock and surprise.
