    A reviewer

    The New York Times Book Review says of this book, 'a Gothic ghost story... like Stephen King'. I am sorry but this can't hold a candle to King's weakest work 'if there was one'. I picked up this book because of this review. It is not what you would expect. I unfortunately stuck with it until the bitter end waiting for something, anything to happen. It is a drab, cold and bitter story. Maybe this passes for good literature in Ireland? Not recommended.
