The Ghosts of the Tattered Crow, by Eldritch Black, is a short story and a fast read. The feel of old London, perhaps the Victorian ages (although a date is never given), comes across really well on the page, and it's easy to imagine the squalid streets and even more filthy tavern as if you were really there.
It's not a particularly creepy tale, nor one that will have the heart rate climbing, but it's an entertaining story nonetheless. The climax and its resolution felt a bit underdone to me, I was hoping for something a bit more, but that doesn't mean this was a bad read.
The feel of the tale spoke to me, the prose made the fictional world believable, and that's what'll draw me to read more books by this author.
From the start the book is extremely creepy and actually makes you believe you're there with the the character Jake. Jake is sent on a mission to kill a ghost in the upstairs rooms of an inn. The innkeeper is a villain in himself and I would have liked to have seen more from him and perhaps for him to have had something bad happen to him.
Like all good ghost stories, there is a nice twist at the end which came as a surprise. I won't give it away.
I would recommend this story for those who particularly like the English twist on their ghost stories. I will be keeping my eyes open for more from this writer.
Eldritch Black has written a great book with an interesting story that would work well as a ghost story for children's Halloween parties or scary stories around a campfire. This doesn't mean it's a children's book, far from it. It is very creepy and atmospheric. I'm pushing 50 and I found that I was getting tense at times as I read it.
I feel there is scope for this book to have been longer and it would still have worked. The shortness of it however would make it an easy "quick read" for people to return to.

Good little read has a time filler only short story but interesting would have been better it was a bit longerPublished on 22 Oct. 2013 by christine
From the beginning of this short story, I was hooked. You follow the main character, a young lad, as he discovers which is more dangerous, the living or the dead. Read morePublished on 21 Jan. 2013 by Symphonic Echo
