Author Neil Spring has openly taken a considerable amount of artistic license with the history surrounding the real-life village of Imber on Salisbury Plain but still manages to bring it to life in this thoroughly enjoyable read. While quite Gothic in its style at times, and even more "wordy" in its descriptions and dialogue, it would be quite easy to skip a few pages here or there to get to the "gist of things", but that would detract from what is basically a suspenseful, psychological, spooky and highly entertaining tale.
The story itself concerns supposed hauntings in the village, and their effects on the troops there, which the ghost hunters are called in to investigate. It's quite readable, being one of those books which doesn't really reveal what is going on until the end, so you do find yourself turning the pages quickly to see what happens. The characters are somewhat sketchy - there are a lot of references to things that have happened in the past which aren't explained, so I am assuming you are supposed to have read the first book in the series before this one. The style is oddly formal in places - perhaps to reflect the period in which it is set.
As a piece of harmless escapism, you could do a lot worse.
