The Whistling

A chilling and original new ghost story




A spine-chilling ghost story with a thrilling mystery at its heart, set on a wild island off the coast of Scotland

Alone in the world, Elspeth takes the position of nanny to a family on the remote Scottish island of Skelthsea.

Her charge is a strange child. Distracted and secretive, Mary hasn't uttered a word since the sudden death of her twin, William - just days after their former nanny disappeared.

Elspeth's questions are met with silence. No-one will speak of William.

Just as no-one can explain the lullabies sung in empty corridors, or the whistling that comes in the night...

With winter closing in, passage off the island turns treacherous - and Elspeth finds herself trapped.

But is this house haunted by the ghosts of the past?

Or the secrets of the living...?
