The String Diaries by Stephen Lloyd Jones

He has a face you love.  A voice you trust.  To survive you must kill him.

A jumble of entries, written in different hands, different languages and different times.  They tell of a rumour.  A shadow.  A stalking death.

The only interest that Oxford Professor Charles Meredith has in the diaries is as a record of Hungarian folklore… until he comes face to face with a myth.

For Hannah Wilde, the diaries are a survival guide that taught her the three rules she lives by: verify everyone, trust no one, and if in any doubt, run.

But Hannah knows that if her nine-year-old daughter is ever going to be safe, she will have to stop running and face the terror that has hunted her family for five generations.

And nothing in the diaries can prepare her for that.

An imaginative, tight, edge-of-your-seat supernatural thriller,
which follows an historical mystery through to its nail-biting contemporary conclusion.

Peer & Press Reviews

At once chilling and soulful, this hauntingly powerful tale weaves together the best elements of the psychological thriller, fantasy horror, and historical fiction.  Stephen Lloyd Jones has penned a deeply inventive, dazzling debut novel.

Eliot Pattison, author of The Skull Mantra

Original, richly imagined and powerfully told.


With The String Diaries, Stephen Lloyd Jones has created a new mythology of the monstrous to rival Stoker’s or Shelley’s.  Grounded in the real world and populated by characters we believe in, this is a book of magic for the doubtful, a fantastic tale for skeptics, at once transporting and convincing.

Andrew Pyper, author of The Demonologist
