A family is hunted by a centuries-old monster: a man with a relentless obsession who can take on any identity. The String Diaries opens with Hannah frantically driving through the night-her daughter asleep in the back, her husband bleeding out in the seat beside her. In the trunk of the car rests a cache of diaries dating back two hundred years, tied and retied with strings through generations. The diaries carry the rules for survival that have been handed down from mother to daughter since the nineteenth century. But how can Hannah escape an enemy with the ability to look and sound like the people she loves? Stephen Lloyd Jones' debut novel is a sweeping thriller that extends from the present day to Oxford in the 1970s to Hungary at the turn of the nineteenth century, all tracing back to a man from an ancient royal family with a consuming passion-a boy who can change his shape, insert himself into the intimate lives of his victims, and destroy them. If Hannah fails to end the chase now, her daughter is next in line. Only Hannah can decide how much she is willing to sacrifice to finally put a centuries-old curse to rest.
