Barbara Hardy is a Journalist in desperate need of a good story,and as chance would have it she meets Margaret Reynolds an ex soap star and a good subject for Barbara. She manages to trick her way into staying with the actress in her home in the hope that she can seize the opportunity to attain a much needed article to further her career. It does not take long for Barbara to realise that she is spending time with a woman who not only carries a great burden, but also appears to be living in an old house where strange nightly occurences are taking place.
I enjoyed this short book, it was a very entertaining read.

Interesting story. Extremely quick read, ideal for a short journey. Personally, prefer a longer story to get to grips with.

A departure from the usual murders, this time into a ghost story. Unlike the reviewer that thinks it was predictable, I think it could have gone several ways, one of them being the ending she chose. Interesting enough and well developed in a short story that it kept you moving along wanting to read more. You could say that the journalist Barbara, instead of getting her own way and exploiting a reclusive actress, got her come uppance. A 2012 Quick Read

Although a short read I really enjoyed this book it had lots of twists to it, the main character of the book although devious in her plans you wish she would get her comeuppance, does she or doesn't she? Read it and find out, unlike too many reviews I don't believe in giving the story away I did find I didn't want to put it down until I'd finished the book .Hope Ms La Plante will write more of these short stories as they are most enjoyable
