Summary

In this remarkable thriller, a British estate owner with psychic powers senses he’s being hunted on his own land by a bloodthirsty beast

Alfgif Hollaston, a cultured English gentleman and painter, has returned to his childhood home in remote Somerset following the death of his father. In this confusing time, he is grateful for the nascent friendship and support of Paddy Gadsden, an amiable saddler on the family estate. But only days after his arrival, Alfgil is shocked to learn Paddy has been violently murdered. After assuming ownership of Paddy’s beloved pet, a tame and playful polecat named Meg, Hollaston—who is more attuned to the mystical than some—begins receiving strange psychic sensations. An instinctual, animalistic sense of impending danger is telling him to flee this place as fast and as far as possible. Before he knows it, this man of class and breeding finds himself abruptly and frighteningly transformed into that most primal of creatures: prey.

An ingenious novel of suspense and terror that exposes the animal within us all, Geoffrey Household’s The Sending is a masterful tale of mortal peril and self-preservation that will keep thriller fans awake and reading into the late hours of the night.
