The London underground has been the setting for a number of films and books dealing with horror, Sci-fi or supernatural tales. For films think of Quartermass and the Pitt (1967), Death Line (1972) and Creep (2004) and for fiction it features in the writings of Ben Aaronovitch and Neil Gaiman. This short story by David Wailing is a welcome addition to the genre.

The scene is set late at night on the Piccadilly line where Emily is returning home after a night out in London. Everything appears normal until the train suddenly stops between stations and then events become stranger and stranger. What I liked about this story is how fast paced this was and how the suspense is maintained. The setting is believable as I'm sure many of the readers have had the same sense of unease and increased panic when their underground train has suddenly come to a halt and as times passes and no announcements are forthcoming the mind begins to wander and imagines dark thoughts.

Authenticity has also been achieved by setting the story near the now disused Brompton Road underground station which was closed in 1934 and the description of it would suggest that the author has either visited it or has undertaken accurate research.

The ending is certainly open to interpretation and can be viewed in a number of ways. For me this added to the enjoyment of the book and for this page turner I would certainly recommend it to lovers of a good spooky tale.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short ghost/horror story whilst travelling on the bus in daylight hours. It had a great fast pace to it with loads of atmosphere to keep me reading. I definitely recommend it but probably not on the late night tube!

Not at all as expected. A strange but very good story. Has a cliff hanger of sorts but not one that leaves you peeved off.

I was just just getting interested when this book sort of fizzled out I think it was only a taster story
