Library Journal Review

Parapsychologist David Ash (Haunted; The Ghosts of Sleath) is assigned to discover the source of the unusual occurrences at Comraich Castle, a super-secret hideaway in Scotland for the less-than-ethical but extremely wealthy citizens of the world. Although plagued by the ghosts of his past, Ash takes the job, both to satisfy his curiosity about the secrecy surrounding Comraich and to collect the substantial fee that his company has been promised should he succeed. Upon arriving at the castle, however, Ash realizes that the situation is much worse than he has been led to believe, and he must quickly unravel the mysteries of Comraich Castle if he wants to leave alive. VERDICT A haunted castle, a secret society, evil forces fueled by past and present atrocities, and lots of explosions-this book has it all. Readers will find it difficult to put down this fast-paced new novel from Britain's top horror writer. Fans and newcomers alike will find this book irresistible. It is classic horror writing at its best.-Elisabeth Clark, West Florida P.L., Pensacola (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
