Raped then murdered in Japanese-occupied Hong Kong in 1942, Lin Shui' s ' Hungry Ghost' clings tenaciously to life. Holing up in a hospital morgue, which is destined to become a school, just in time she finds a host off whom to feed. It is twelve-year-old Alice Safford, the deeply-troubled daughter of a leading figure in government. The parasitic ghost follows her to her home on the Peak. There, the lethal mix of the two, embroiled in the family' s web of dark secrets and desperate lies, unleashes chaos. It seems the peace she longs for is to prove far more elusive that she could ever have imagined. ' The Hungry Ghosts' is a remarkable tour de force of the imagination, full of instantly memorable characters whose lives intermesh and boil over in a cauldron of domestic mayhem, unleashing unworldly spirits into the troubled air. A novel for those who loved Behind the Scenes at the Museum, The Poisonwood Bible and The Lovely Bones. She flees to England, then France, in a bid to escape the past, only to find her portable ' Hungry Ghosts' have accompanied her. As successive tragedies engulf Alice, her ghostly entourage swells alarmingly. All this unfolds against a background of colonial unrest, riots, extremes of weather and the countdown to the return of the colony to China.
