In the foul streets of old London town, The Tattered Crow inn has some eerie inhabitants. Ghosts dwell in the upper floors, and 12 year old serving boy Jake Shillingsworth is about to encounter them to carry out a heinous task. Armed with little more than a vial of liquid and a spyglass that allows him to see the spirits, Jake must enter the ghost's realm on Halloween and seek revenge . . . or face death.

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.

This book is set in the creepy back alleys of London and although no time period is given, I got the impression it was set around the time of Queen Victoria and Jack the Ripper.

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.

Whilst this is a short story, it leaves you feeling satisfied when you complete it. A lovely twist at the end that I wasn't expecting.

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.

Just finished reading this story and have to say I really enjoyed it. It is a short story and read quickly but is a great read nevertheless. Authors often fail to capture a sense of the historical period their tale is set in, but not so here. The writer's use of dialogue is spot on and I loved the daft Innkeeper with his affected posh accent. Good spooky tale and looking forward to more from this author.
