In a beautifully written, brooding and visceral modern gothic thriller, a boundary dispute in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands escalates out of control, pitting local against in-comer with explosive and violent consequences. Arriving at their idyllic and newly renovated Highland home, worthy of TV’s Grand Designs, wealthy thirty-somethings, John and Laura Payne, hope they are leaving their problems behind in the city. But the couple’s presence disturbs neighbour and local eccentric, Luther Grove, forcing him to confront long buried secrets; secrets that draw him inextricably to Laura and trigger an instant conflict with John. The arrival of John’s brother, Frank, proves to be the spark that ignites this highly combustible triangular relationship, ultimately threatening the safety and sanity of all four as they are propelled towards a bloody and tragic dénouement. In a stunning debut, Barry Gornell, graduate of the University of Glasgow’s renowned and highly successful Creative Writing Masters course – which launched the careers of John Creasey Dagger winner Louise Welsh, Orange Prize nominee Anne Donovan, Somerset Maugham winner Rodge Glass, and Man Booker nominee Rachel Seiffert, amongst many others – builds the tension flawlessly, showing genuine sympathy for his principle characters in this elegant, claustrophobic and acutely observed psychological thriller. "The Healing of Luther Grove is a startling novel, dripping with Gothic tension, written with deep empathy and searing intelligence and building to a coruscating and brutal climax. A fantastic, highly accomplished debut from a real talent." Doug Johnstone
