And when people notice how close David is to the gull, they begin to suspect he is to blame for the tragedies ...
With echoes of Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Birds, Plague of Gulls is the latest novel by Stephen Gregory, author of the modern classic The Cormorant and one of the finest contemporary writers of psychological horror.
