Two interwoven stories,one in the present and the other in the 1800's. Both are set in a small area of the English countryside which covers several buildings crucial to the story. The main two are Twygrist Mill and Latchkill Asylum for the Insane.In the present day,a woman who has spent some time in prison for stabbing a man to death,is released early and ends up renting a cottage near to these buildings. She hopes to put her past behind her and to start a new life. Soon after arriving strange things begin to happen - is she going mad,or is there someone persecuting her for an,as yet unknown reason.Slowly the past encroaches and evil reaches out over time to involve her.There is a strong,dark story-line (almost too strong and dark at times) and some really scary scenes. The characters are well-drawn and the fact that many of them are killers as well as mad adds rather than distracts.I love the fact that central to each of her books Sarah Rayne has a building (well several in this one) and this helps bring all of her books together so well.

I agree with Phoebesmum on this one and i couldn't have said it better.

Psychological thriller incorporating Dark Secrets of the Past. On the whole pretty good, although the implausible coincidences ¿ and the sheer number of murders, to say nothing of the sheer number of murderers! ¿ rather threaten to overbalance the story. But, still, hard to put down, and responsible for a couple of very late nights. I'll be picking up the rest of this author's books when I can.

Just when you think you know the characters, Sarah Rayne tosses in a new piece and you must change your perceptions of their motives. She has written a story that falls into two different time periods. The plot of each finds you excited for the next part of the tale without forcing you to read the second story just to get through it. The book is just creepy enough to warrant staying awake to read just one chapter but you will not be afraid of the dark.
