The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths is Gothic tale set in modern England, the main protagonist an English teacher with a teenage daughter and a dog. Looming behind the plot are the writings of RM Holland, a fictional Victorian writer of ghost stories (presumably based on MR James). It’s that Victorian creepiness that makes the audiobook so good, and all in all, pretty scary.
