Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When Tom and Charley Witney, young Londoners desperate to conceive a child, decide a move to the country will relax them (per doctor's orders), they purchase Elmwood Mill, a secluded 15th-century building, and begin a rural existence that proves to be anything but relaxing. It seems the place is inhabited by the spirit of a nasty woman who once lived there, and Charley soon falls victim to horrific visions that leave Tom untouched. Charley experiences an odd familiarity with the house and begins "regressive therapy" to find out whether she had a past life that involved Elmwood Mill. James ( Possession ) uses these therapeutic sessions to chilling narrative effect as the regression continues and Charley's discoveries mount up. Readers will want to lock all the doors and light the lamps.

From Library Journal

For no medical reason, Charley and her moody husband Tom are unable to conceive a baby. Hoping a change of scene will help, they move to the country. The old house seems familiar and threatening to Charley, though she has never been there before. Charley has been trying various psychological treatments to cure her infertility; she visits a hypnotist and begins to believe that, because of the past, she does have a connection with the house. An orphan, she traces her natural parents; sure enough, the house played a deadly role in their lives, and now Charley's presence has awakened some vengeful ghosts. This is a quietly frightening horror thriller, only slightly marred by one of those "but is it really the end?" epilogs. Bewildered Charley is a likable heroine (though one wonders what she sees in spoiled Tom), and the clues that mount up do make the reader anxious to find out what really happened to Charley's parents.

A little slow to begin with...but I think that was more to do with scene setting as there is lots of description, but once Charley and Tom move to the country the story picks up and pulls the reader in. I love supernatural and horror style novels but I'm also a sceptic. This story delves into the supernatural as well as touching on horror and is very much in the vein of the traditional 'old house with history'...BUT it's also very compelling.

As the reader we can pre-empt some of the plot but that didn't spoil it, it was imaginative and intriguing....even to sceptics!!

I normally enjoy books by Peter James but not this one. Although I thought reading a super-natural book would be interesting I did not like the story line which involved a nasty ghost. I skimmed through the boring bits and was glad to reach the end.

Another satisfying read from Peter James. I guessed the final outcome, albeit a bit obvious. However, the storyline is good and moves along at steady pace, quick enough to keep the interest, without the pace of a formula one racer.
A good read that’s thought provoking and brings a new dimension to, ‘Who do you think you are?’

A good read by my favourite author. Really good if you're into ghost stories. Looking forward to reading more books by Peter James.
