Overview

ALL PROCEEDS NOW GOING TO ANIMAL WELFARE AGENCIES
In his memoirs, Dr Alan Robertson recalls the devastating few days he spent at a friend's beach house high on the Dorset cliffs. At the time, he was a young London medical student, and the year was 1900.
More than a decade has passed since then but the events of those few days have left a lasting impression upon him, and a sadness that, to some extent, still underpins his life.
Alan initially feels uneasy as he accompanies his friend south from London by train. His uneasiness is further fuelled by a bizarre occurrence on that first night, and even more so the next day, following the arrival of his friend's cousin.
From there, things become truly strange, especially when the cousin disappears, the event sparking a violent confrontation that becomes a terrifying fight for survival.
From that point on, all control is lost, the two friends finding themselves centre stage as their nightmare fully unfolds.
In the years after, Alan pieces together further parts of the puzzle. He learns what really happened all those years ago and accepts that there are some things he will never know for certain.

Meet the Author

I am Australian and living in Victoria. If you decide to read my books I hope you enjoy them. I understand my stories will not be to everybody's taste and across the various retailers I have received some very complimentary reviews and a couple of scathing ones too. In the latter instances it is evident the people have not finished the story they were reading. I don't think a review should be left if a book has not been read completely.ALL PROCEEDS FROM MY STORIES ARE NOW BEING DONATED TO ANIMAL WELFARE AGENCIES.Aside from writing, I also paint and feature on the Paintings I Love website under my own name.

    Got this as a free Nook book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's written in the tradition of "The Woman in White" and other classic mysteries, and done very well. Obviously carefully researched. Not over-written, and full of the flavor of the early 1900s without being precious. I haven't reviewed other books on B&N, because I haven't felt they needed or merited review. This book does. If you have the chance to read The Cape, please do!

    This was a great ghost story. If you are into the "old" ghost novels, you will want to read this one. You can really get into the characters of the story too. Loved it !

    Awful

    When was this written...the 1800's? The writing was too formal, pages of descriptions that lent nothing to the tale. Extremely boring.
