A haunting atmospheric tale. I enjoyed it and sometimes had to stop reading at night because I did not want my imagination to run wild. I wished the ending explains things more. All in all, a good read.

The book arrived safely today - many thanks!

Later: Hill does seem to go for the subtle horror and the ambiguous endings - which can be effective, if frustrating for the reader. I liked the buildup here, with the ghostly youth popping up at odd moments, and the unnerving and atmospheric experiences of our protagonist when his senses seem to mislead him. The back story about the fatally charismatic Conrad Vane was enticing - but became frustrating by the conclusion; while I can enjoy some things being unresolved, I didn't find this ending very satisfying. I think this had more to do with the protagonist/narrator, whose memory problems and personality combined to make him hard to like... But the feeling of something-wrong-in-the-dark was conveyed beautifully in several scenes, for a good shivery effect.
