Publisher's Summary

A chilling ghost story from the author of The Woman in Black, set in a crumbling English house...

The remoter parts of the English Fens are forlorn, lost, and damp even in the height of summer. At Iyot Lock, a large decaying house, two young cousins, Leonora and Edward, are parked for the summer with their aging spinster aunt and her cruel housekeeper. At first the unpleasantness and petty meanness appear simply spiteful, calculated to destroy Edward's equanimity. But when the spoiled Leonora is not given the birthday present of a specific dolly that she wants, affairs inexorably take a much darker turn with terrifying, life-destroying consequences for everyone.

Are you afraid of dolls? No? You will be now.

If you're afraid of dolls, this book will frighten the life out of you. I'm not, but I still found it chilling and atmospheric. It's a short feature, but well worth it for the quality of writing, suspenseful timing, and of course, the originality of the story and its characters. Highly recommended.

Classic spine-tingler!

Where does Dolly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Middle. I like that it was short and suspenseful but I prefer longer stories.

What other book might you compare Dolly to and why?

Poe's tales of suspense. His stories are also tight and tense.

What three words best describe Cameron Stewart’s voice?

Over the top (on the female voices)

If you could take any character from Dolly out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Lenora because she is the most complex and deliciously evil.
