First Class Horrors But Echoes of Writers Past?

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)

First class ghost story or a brilliantly written pastiche of a classic genre? - I can't make up my mind.

One thing is for sure, this is a really entertaining & enjoyable read. It's short and well-written. They are well-known ghost story ingredients - an isolated house, a spooky rocking chair & endless weather updates. But, blended together they really work.

The tale follows a young London lawyer as he seeks to put the affairs of a now empty home in order. Set against a background of marshland and rural superstition, he needs to unpick the mysteries of Eel Marsh House.

This a cracking ghost story of the old school. My advice is read it by candlelight, with an open fire & on a stormy night. The scares will work as well now as they always have.

Then, get onto Amazon the next day & track down more of the same - this time goe to the great ladies of old ghost stories such as
Uncanny Stories (Wordworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural) &
The Bishop of Hell and Other Stories (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural).
