More about Strangers at the Gate:

The plot of Strangers at the Gate follows central characters Finnie Doyle and Paddy Lamb who are moving to the little town of Simmerton. But witnessing the bloody aftermath of a brutal murder changes everything. McPherson’s title turns on the discovery of past secrets, scandal, and more.

Comments Kirkus Reviews about McPherson’s latest work, “McPherson is a master of atmosphere, delivering a few nifty twists while weaving a creepy slow burner of a mystery that takes full advantage of its isolated setting…. Another unsettling and cleverly plotted winner from the enormously talented McPherson.”
