The Sunday Times Bestseller 2021. As recommended by the BBC Radio 2 Book Club 'The novel I've enjoyed most this year' - Hilary Mantel 'A mystery, a love story and a ghost story, all at once. Wonderful' - S J Watson Cornwall, 1972. Three keepers vanish from a remote lighthouse, miles from the shore. The entrance door is locked from the inside. The clocks have stopped. The Principal Keeper's weather log describes a mighty storm, but the skies have been clear all week. What happened to those three men, out on the tower? The heavy sea whispers their names. The tide shifts beneath the swell, drowning ghosts. Can their secrets ever be recovered from the waves? Twenty years later, the women they left behind are still struggling to move on. Helen, Jenny and Michelle should have been united by the tragedy, but instead it drove them apart. And then a writer approaches them. He wants to give them a chance to tell their side of the story. But only in confronting their darkest fears can the truth begin to surface . . . Inspired by real events, The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex is an intoxicating and suspenseful mystery, an unforgettable story of love and grief that explores the way our fears blur the line between the real and the imagined. 'Gripping' - Guardian 'Riveting' - Independent 'Excellent' - Observer 'A triumph' - Daily Mail 'Stunning' - The Times

I loved The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex - lighthouse keepers, ghosts, warring widows.

Literary and insanely gripping. -- India Knight A remarkable book, through every page, every character, the writing resonates with the dark, powerful presence of the sea -- Raynor Winn, author of <i>The Salt Path</i> Stonex's story has the mesmerism of a churned winter sea * Sunday Times * Superbly accomplished . . . The Lamplighters is a whodunnit, horror novel, ghost story and fantastically gripping psychological investigation rolled into one. It is also a pitch-perfect piece of writing * Guardian * An intoxicating and beautifully written mystery about love and loss, as moving as it is suspenseful -- C.L. Taylor, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Missing</i> Full of atmosphere and dread, it's the perfect way to escape right now * Stylist * Atmospheric and suspenseful . . . Part psychological drama, part mystery, part ghost story, The Lamplighters is a triumph * Daily Mail * Beautifully written and evocative, this is a mystery, a love story and a ghost story, all at once. It kept me gripped throughout, and I didn't want it to end. Wonderful. -- S J Watson, bestselling author of <i>Before I Go to Sleep</i> Riveting . . . Stonex's clever slow reveal is as much keen psychological drama as it is an intriguing thriller * Independent * The Lamplighters transported me effortlessly to the mysterious Maiden Rock and life on the Cornish coast. Stonex creates a most engaging collection of voices and perspectives that unveil what happened in true pager-turner fashion, a mystery told through vivid prose that had me completely absorbed from start to finish. Haunting, harrowing and heartbreaking, this is a novel that will stay with you. -- Ashley Audrain, author of <i>The Push</i> The Lamplighters draws you in and keeps you utterly gripped, with Stonex's writing particularly excelling in her gorgeous and evocative descriptions of the sea. A haunting, hugely atmospheric book * Heat * Beautiful, absorbing and utterly riveting, The Lamplighters is a hymn to loneliness, to the sea, and to the stories we allow ourselves to believe when we are alone. I treasured every moment of this dazzlingly accomplished and completely unforgettable novel. -- Rosie Walsh, author of <i>The Man Who Didn't Call</i> A really enjoyable literary mystery. Stonex's descriptions of the storms and the sea are wonderful -- Claire Fuller * author of Unsettled Ground * A gorgeous page-turner that is at once a mystery and a novel about mysteries - about how we all write our own endings and suffer betrayals, but still light the lamps so the people we love can find their way home. -- Charlotte Rogan, author of <i>The Lifeboat</i> Wise, beautiful and quietly devastating, The Lamplighters gets under the skin in a way that few books do. Weeks on from reading the last page, it still makes my heart ache -- Kate Riordan, author of <i>The Heat Wave</i> A deeply atmospheric and utterly gripping mystery . . . Superb -- Wyl Menmuir, Man Booker Prize longlisted author of <i>The Many</i> Compulsive, taut, and unforgettable. The Lamplighters is that rare book which is as exquisitely written as it is page-turning. I'm already telling everyone I know to read it. -- Lucy Clarke, author of <i>The Sea Sisters</i> A beautifully written, utterly compelling tale. -- Jenny Colgan, <i>Sunday Times </i>bestselling author of <i>Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe</i> The Lamplighters took my breath away. A cracking mystery, perfectly plotted, and oh-so-beautifully written. -- Lucy Diamond Beautifully written, gripping and haunting . . . This genre-defying, literary mystery has it all, including an eerily accurate insight into relationships and
