Arthur was twelve when he watched his mother jump from the cliff into the sea.
Wasted by grief, he and his father stayed at the family home in Whitehaven, as life became dull and meaningless. Years later, Arthur works in a call centre and dreams of something extraordinary to change it all. Arthur’s right, Something is coming, and nothing will ever be the same again…The Thing on the Shore is the much-anticipated second novel from the critically acclaimed Tom Fletcher, whose first, The Leaping, marked him out as the most promising horror writer for a generation.
