Moffat, a murderous and magniloquent criminal, is thriving in the underbelly of 19th-century London. When he unexpectedly inherits Gibbous House, an expansive estate in Northumbria, he heads north on a journey that raises questions about his own identity and quickly leads to issues of morality, addiction and murder.
Gibbous House, Moffat discovers, already plays home to a motley cast of characters: the beautiful and seductive Ellen Pardoner, the conniving attache Maccabi and the arrogant scientist Enoch-manager of the mansion's esoteric 'collection'. Moffat's greed-fuelled pursuit of his inheritance takes him deep into a crazed, conspiratorial plot and a series of tense psychological showdowns.
Gibbous House is a dark Victorian thriller told with fresh wit and brimming with historical detail. Filled with atmosphere and drama, it brings modern irony to the rich texture of the classic gothic novel.

About Ewan Lawrie

Ewan Lawrie spent 23 years in the Royal Air Force, 10 years in Cold War Berlin and 12 years flying over the rather warmer conflicts that followed. He began writing during long boring flights over desert countries, and what started as a way of killing time soon developed into a passion.

Nowadays he spends his time in the south of Spain, writing and teaching English to Andalucians and other hispanophones. Though he has had stories and poetry published in several anthologies, Gibbous House is his first novel.
