Reviews

In Bolton's superb third thriller, the Fletchers-mother Alice, father Gareth, 10-year-old Tom, six-year-old Joe, and two-year-old Millie-receive an icy welcome on moving to isolated Heptonclough, England. When Tom swears he sees a young girl watching him from the shadows, everyone assumes it's his overactive imagination or maybe local kids playing a joke. But when one such prank puts Millie's life in danger, the Rev. Harry Laycock, a vicar who's also new to the area, suspects something more sinister might be at work. Through Dr. Evi Oliver, a psychiatrist, Harry meets a patient of Evi's, Gillian Royle, who's still distraught over the death of her young daughter in a mysterious house fire three years earlier. Harry soon discovers disturbing links between the death of Gillian's daughter and the fates of two other girls. Bolton (Awakening) expertly balances the gothic supernatural elements with a crackling psychological plot, leaving readers breathless until the last page.

Bolton's third gothic mystery (after Sacrifice and Awakening) will keep readers awake at night for two reasons: it's too spooky to put down, and they are going to want to know what happens next. When the Fletcher family moves to Heptonclough, a small village on the Lancashire moors, the children are thrilled with their new home and the huge church grounds on the other side of the fence where they can roam at will. But the family finds that the locals are a closed community, and some of their traditions seem a little bizarre. When a series of pranks played on the newcomers become increasingly more dangerous, the oldest son, Tom, starts to display seriously troubling behavior. The local vicar and a family psychiatrist become involved in the family's troubles when a grisly discovery made in the churchyard next door leaves the family and the entire town reeling. VERDICT This suspenseful tale is sure to satisfy readers, even if it leaves them a little sleep deprived.
