This review is from: The Burial Chamber (Paperback)
This is an extraordinary book full of mounting suspense. Not only the story is disturbing, so too is the information on medical treatments in the 1800s. The mentally ill had a particularly hard time of it. This book must have taken some years to research, the historical details add to the atmosphere. Also the way people spoke and related to each other at that time seem to have been captured brilliantly by the author. The ending is a big surprise, which is as it should be!
