If I was capable of writing a book of this quality I'd be very pleased so what follows is not meant destructively.
In MY opinion it started as a ghost story and then became a horror story. I loved the atmospheric build up - but when the killings abruptly started it seemed as if the author had reached a point and had no idea what to do next. The expletives albeit few detract from the overall effect.
Finally, the plot was a bit one dimensional as it lay, the bit about Fox at the end might have been made more of. So in summary, great start then sudden lurch into blood & guts, terminating in an uninspiring trudge up the beach.
Nevertheless I'm goint to try another one of this guys books. We can't all be M R James from a standing start.
