Overview

No one lives for very long in the houses they buy from Mr Vane. Neighbours complain of noises that chill the blood, and then deathly silence. Maybe the occupants have moved away, but then again, maybe they haven't.

John has joined Mr Vane's estate agency. He thinks houses are for living in – happily ever after. He has no idea about the hidden forces inside Mr Vane's properties, nor about their strange appetites, but he's about to find out.

First published in 1998, House of Bones is a chilling, gruesome, horror novel.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Masterton, the prolific author of over 70 books, has written yet another satisfying work of horror structured as a traditional mystery, emphasizing character and featuring organized spirits. A London youth is employed by an estate agency owned by Mr. Vane, a strange fellow whose personal accounts are forbidden to employees. On the newcomer's first day at work, the young man ignorantly visits one of these properties, where his fellow employee is pulled bodily into a brick wall by a mysterious force. This is followed by other disappearances in other residences, puzzling estate employees and the police until a number of skeletons are discovered behind a wall in a property undergoing demolition. The accessible vocabulary and splendid flow are great strengths and typical of Masterton's style, as are the contemporary young characters. Granted a smidgen of suspension of disbelief, even the horror of being pursued by a statue may be believable. The generous type size (typical of Severn House titles) may be appreciated by readers of any age. Recommended for all libraries.
