"A gripping novel of real originality . . . The careful setting-up, subtle delineation of character, meticulous observation of the castle itself - in some ways the story's main character - and the gradual increase in the pace and tension of this riveting narrative mark this as a novel of real skill and technique" * Carousel * "Packed with suspense and palpable tension . . . This compelling thriller is impossible to put down" * The Bookseller * "A brilliant book, evocatively written and full of sinister suspense" * BBC Parenting *
