The relationship between the two narrators, Alice and Orla, is one that develops with quiet intensity, whilst a third presence haunts the story in a very real - and unsettling - way. The narrative is woven through exchange of email, a development of the epistolary novel which is very effective, combining modern technology with a tale focused on the silent-movie era. This device is convincing, helping to consolidate the novel's themes of timeless obsession and the persistence of evil.
Combining crime fiction, supernatural horror and suspense fiction, the novel also explores the insidious ways that humans feed off each other, even when, in the case of Alice and Orla, they never physically meet.
This is a novel that remains with you after teh last page has been turned. Recommended.
