The Sanatorium By Sarah Pearse

The Sanatorium By Sarah Pearse


An imposing, isolated hotel, high up in the Swiss Alps, is the last place Elin Warner wants to be. But she’s taken time off from her job as a detective, so when she receives an invitation out of the blue to celebrate her estranged brother’s recent engagement, she has no choice but to accept.

Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge. Though it’s beautiful, something about the hotel, recently converted from an abandoned sanatorium, makes her nervous – as does her brother, Isaac.

And when they wake the following morning to discover his fiancĂ©e Laure has vanished without a trace, Elin’s unease grows. With the storm cutting off access to and from the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic.

But no-one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing. And she’s the only one who could have warned them just how much danger they’re all in . .

My Thoughts:

If you want a spine tingling, creepy read this is the one for you, I t is a very well described story, the author Sarah has clearly done a lot of research into the Sanatorium. I felt as though I learnt quite a bit as I had never heard of one before let alone what they did there. I found this story had me on edge, I couldn’t work out where the story was being lead, the descriptions of the different things in the hotel gave me chills and so did what happened back in the day before it turned into a hotel. A tense and chilling read, the ending left me with goosebumps.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley.
