5.0 out of 5 stars True suspense and gripping with every turn of a page!
I discovered Ki Longfellow's writings through being a llifelong admirer of her late husband, Vivian Stanshall. This novel takes Longfellow down a new path and shows what a versatile and original writer she is. The story is told by one "voice" - a woman whose name the reader does not learn, yet one who becomes an instantly tangible character, as does the strange house...

1.0 out of 5 stars What a crock!
The folk that gave this book five stars must be of the same ilk as those that look at a blank canvas abstract and prattle on about how wonderful it is.Sorry,but I thought it was absolute tosh.

This review is from: Houdini Heart (Paperback)
I discovered Ki Longfellow's writings through being a llifelong admirer of her late husband, Vivian Stanshall. This novel takes Longfellow down a new path and shows what a versatile and original writer she is. The story is told by one "voice" - a woman whose name the reader does not learn, yet one who becomes an instantly tangible character, as does the strange house which fascinated her as a child and which she has now run back to. There are references to the likes of Alfred Hitchcock within, and there's no doubt in my mind that Houdini Heart would make a fine film, but surely a classic scary tale like this will always work best when the scenes are played out in the mind of the reader. I have no reservation in giving this book five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Follow the (Long)fellow..I am now., 4 Aug 2011
This review is from: Houdini Heart (Kindle Edition)
I came across this book in a random way and downloaded the sample to my kindle. Was enthralled enough by what I read that I just had to know more.
Wasn't disappointed at all. The 'taster' delivered. Instead of being just a teasing sample, it followed through and held me in a deliciously gripping vice. Hauntingly beautifully written.
I hadn't known of Ki Longfellow before this......Shall certainly follow her now!

This review is from: Houdini Heart (Kindle Edition)
Ki Longfellow, best known for historical fiction, switches to murder and mystery in a contemporary psychological tailspin that will leave you breathless. Is this a haunted hotel, or the deranged mind of a woman on the run? Equal parts past and present, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat.
