A good thriller.,
This review is from: What Lies Beneath (Paperback)
The village of Priors Bramley was closed off fifty years ago, due to a military experiment being conducted, in the area. On the day it was closed off, three children from the neighbouring town decided to visit the village for one last time, leading to serious repercussions. In the present day, the village has now been declared safe, and is about to be reopened. However, one of the former children would prefer the town to stayed closed, and secrets to remain buried.
As others have mentioned, this novel is not quite as creepy as some of this author's other works, but it certanly has some very eerie moments. The story skips between events of one hundred years ago, events from fifty years ago, and the present day. It kept my interest throughout, but I found the parts of the book set in current times, the least believeable.
