This is a cross between an old-fashioned ghost story and a psychological whodunit. The interplay between the characters is well observed, and so is the setting. Sarah Walters, as usual, turns in a good performance as far as the writing is concerned. So everything seems set fair for a jolly good read?
   Almost. Without giving away too much of the plot, it's clear that the author wanted to leave us undecided whether supernatural things were happening or not, but I find it hard to explain some of the events, as described, any other way. And I found the ending a bit disappointing. It kind of trailed off without any real explanations and... wasn't satisfactory.
  But overall, this is a pretty good book compared to many others you find on the shelves, particularly with regard to the standard of writing, so don't let my gripes prevent you from getting a copy.
