The breakout bestselling crime thriller debut of 2021, The Sanatorium published with rave endorsements from Richard Osman, Lucy Foley and A J Finn. It was an instant #3 Sunday Times bestseller and spent eight weeks in the Top Ten.

'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 'An eerie, atmospheric novel that had me completely on the edge of my seat.' Reese Witherspoon A beautiful, eerie hotel in the Swiss Alps, recently converted from an abandoned sanatorium, is the last place Detective Elin Warner wants to be. But her estranged brother has invited her there for his engagement party, and she feels she has no choice but to accept.

Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge. And things only get worse when they wake the next morning to find her brother's fiancee is missing. With access to the hotel cut off, the guests begin to panic.

But this is only the first disappearance. Everyone's in danger - and anyone could be next . . .

Reviews for The Sanatorium

Pearse's 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, internationally bestselling author of THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB * Dark, suspenseful and downright chilling, The Sanatorium is a triumph. Vividly set against the backdrop of the Swiss Alps, it had me on the edge of my seat from the first page. Pearse's writing is sublime. What a talent! Pearse has a big future ahead of her. * Sally Hepworth, author of THE MOTHER-IN-LAW * The Sanatorium is an absolutely splendid Gothic thriller - gracious in its nods to the classic locked-room mystery, yet bold enough to burst out of that room through the window. Pearse writes prose fresh and crisp as Swiss Alp powder, and her characters fascinate even as their numbers dwindle. * A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW * The Sanatorium is definitely a debut novel to watch out for. Wow, what a chilling read! One of the creepiest thrillers I've ever read. So atmospheric, clever and compulsive. LOVED it! * Claire Douglas, author of LOCAL GIRL MISSING * A seriously sinister setting, an incredible sense of place and a twisty, unpredictable plot combine to make an utterly terrifying read. I loved it. * Allie Reynolds, author of SHIVER *
