Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. British author Cottam (Dark Echo) makes his U.S. debut with a riveting supernatural thriller. A decade earlier, while on a research trip to London's notoriously haunted Fischer House on the Isle of Wight, psychically sensitive journalist Paul Seaton barely escaped a demonic entity that occultist Aleister Crowley had summoned in the 1920s. Now, Paul investigates a new tragedy: four unfortunate philosophy students encountered something so foul at Fischer House that it killed one and threatens the sanity of the three survivors. The only way for Paul to help the students and redress the shambles that his life has become since his nightmare experience is to return to Fischer House and lay the evil that still stalks the grounds. Cottam evokes influences that range from Dennis Wheatley (who has a minor role) to Shirley Jackson, and conjures a mood of paranoia perfect for Paul's unsettling adventure. Rich in atmosphere, the book builds to a shattering finale. (July)

'A clever thriller : spooky, atmospheric, often genuinely frightening. Another auspicious debut.' Peter Guttridge 'Echoes of the Blair Witch Project resonate throughout this chilling novel. Cottam's elaborate haunting needs some indulgence, but his his adenaline-chargedprose is drawn tight with suspense.' Financial Times "Extremely well written ...Old-fashioned suspense combined with modern horror imagery to produce a fine example of the genre." The Times Chilling tale of suspense. Belfast Telegraph In this brilliant and chilling novel real events in the past impact on the present and a terrible sense of foreboding will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page. Lancashire Evening Telegraph
