Olivier Award-winning actress Denise Gough will narrate the upcoming Audible Original thriller The Estate, by début author Liza Costello.
Released exclusively on Audible on 6th February 2020, The Estate follows young Irishwoman Beth Sheehan, who thinks she has found a soulmate when she enjoys a chance encounter with the charismatic Jason.
“The pair set out to build a life together, buoyed by the offer of a rent-free house on a secluded ‘ghost estate’,” reads the synopsis. “There’s only one problem. Jason’s new job in town keeps him away—a lot. And Beth is drinking. The two lovers are lying to each other. But who’s manipulating whom? As Jason controls from afar, Beth’s mind spirals out of control. And when a child goes missing, the house takes on deathly connotations. There’s no place like home…and Beth hopes there never will be again.”
Harriet Poland, commissioning editor at Audible, said: “The Estate is a stellar example of a tense, dynamic and gripping thriller. In Beth, Liza has created a character whose vulnerability and fallibility only enhance the horror of her new home. This is a story of creeping unease and familiar dynamics, and it’s perfect for the intimacy of audio.”
