Can this really be the Susan Hill who wrote Woman in Black? This is a lousy book, badly written with a very holey plot. Little is explained, it is not scary and it bears all the hall marks of a rushed and unedited job. In fact I was convinced that this book must be written by a different author with the same name. There is a character called Fergus who changes his name to Felix for one page - but that could be a kindle error. Dialogue is jerky and unreal. Cliché follows cliché and it is hard to find a redeeming feature. Writing 'my life would never be the same again' (not exact quote) is not a way to build suspense. Don't bother. Ms Hill was definitely having an off day.
