W H Smith has announced the Richard and Judy Summer Book Club choices for 2019, featuring The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths

, recently released in paperback.

The Book Club is run exclusively with WHSmith, with all the selections available to buy throughout the 1000 plus stores in high streets and travel locations across the UK. Each list is compiled after going through a rigorous selection process, the available titles are whittled down to a longlist which Richard and Judy (alongside a group of book industry experts) read before settling on a final selection of titles.

Richard said about The Stranger Diaries:

It is wonderfully enjoyable and presses all the right buttons to make you shiver and shudder as you read of ghosts, portents, draughty old towers and elderly strangers aboard a Victorian train who engage guileless young travellers in the kind of stories best enjoyed around a Christmas fire, logs crackling and chestnuts roasting. We both loved it. So will you.”

Judy said:

This is a deliciously creepy book containing all the features of good old-fashioned ghost stories: terrifyingly dark passageways in old haunted houses, dense sea-mists, a deserted old warehouse with mysterious flashing nocturnal lights, and even a self-proclaimed witch. What’s not to love? It’s terrific.”
