First UK edition with a single #1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing. Price still on dustjacket. Author’s debut novel. “Raped then murdered in Japanese-occupied Hong Kong, 1942, Lin Shui’s ‘Hungry Ghost’ clings tenaciously to life. Holing up in a hospital morgue, destined to become a school, just in time she finds a host off whom to feed. It is 12 year-old Alice Safford, the deeply troubled daughter of a leading figure in government. The parasitic ghost follows her to her home on The Peak. There, the lethal mix of the two, entangled in the Safford family’s web of dark secrets and desperate lies, unleashes chaos.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
