This tells the tale of two cousins, an unusual treasure hunt, and a very haunted house that takes a place in the story as a character in itself! I hesitate to explain too much, but this story is very well told and has many surprises for the reader which are unveiled by degrees and you really have your doubts about the reliability of either of the cousins.
I would highly recommend this book to any reader that would enjoy a well constructed story reminiscent of Poe or other classical horror writers that depended upon atmosphere and good characterization rather than gory action to make their story honestly scary!
A touch of Poe with the atmosphere, scatter in a little V. C. Andrews with a dysfunctional family, mix well with an aroma of Stephen King and you end up with a product that is Chapman's own.
I particularly liked the house itself; the way it creaked and groaned and leaned more and more as the story progressed.
A fun read.
