The House of Lost Souls
4 journalers for this copy...
"A drowned corpse, a glimpsed apparition and a discordant melody carried on the breeze. The evil is back. The house has been re-opened.
Just weeks after four students cross the threshold of the derelict Fischer House, one of them has committed suicide and the other three are descending into madness.
To save his sister, one of the three, ex-soldier Nick Mason must join ranks with Paul Seaton -- who visited the house a decade earlier and survived. But Paul is a troubled man, haunted by visisions of an ordeal that even now threaten his own sanity. . . "
One of my WishList books, I am really looking forward to reading it!
Thanks for the sweeties in the lovely little bag, the bookmarks (I love the kittens), and the beautiful Hong Kong postcard!
You are a Number 1, Wandering-B! :)
Once again, as in "Dark Echo", the writer takes us through a ghost story, but throwing in real characters in the midst; in this case, Aleister Crowley, once considered "The Wickedest Man in the World" (I've always liked this family picture of his, see pic), and the writer Dennis Wheatley, whose novels (though considered awfully written by one of the characters) now I'm eager to read!
The two main characters, Nick and Paul, go on a search after the mysterious photographer Pandora Gibson-Hoare, and her strange links to the Fishcher House. There are black magic rituals, and even a human sacrifice. But throughout, characters are vivid and dialogue is sparkling. And the narrative keeps moving between present and past, aided by Pandora's diaries... but we never lose track.
A MUST for all of us who love ghost stories; I will certainly keep on searching for more novels by this writer.
Thanks for granting this Wish, Wandering-B; I have tagged Yorkshire-lass with it in the WishList Tag Game, and it will soon be on its way to her.
I hope you'll enjoy the book... and the "little extra something". :)
Thank you too for the "little extra", a beautiful green fan, I love it :-)
