The Hitchcock Hotel

Stephanie Wrobel

From the USA TODAY and nationally bestselling author of Darling Rose Gold comes a dark, suspenseful novel about a hotelier in New England planning a reunion with his oldest friends, the founding members of a campus film club devoted to Alfred Hitchcock.

Alfred Smettle is not your average Hitchcock fan. He is the founder, owner, and manager of The Hitchcock Hotel, a sprawling Victorian house in the White Mountains dedicated to the Master of Suspense. There, Alfred offers his guests round-the-clock film screenings, movie props and memorabilia in every room, plus an aviary with fifty crows.

To celebrate the hotel’s first anniversary, he invites his former best friends from his college Film Club for a reunion. He hasn’t spoken to any of them in sixteen years, not after what happened.

But who better than them to appreciate Alfred’s creation? And to help him finish it.

After all, no Hitchcock set is complete without a body.
