Customer Review

on 6 August 2011
This is the perfect winter book for a winter's night by the fire. Its academic and ecclesiastical settings, with characters being both Cambridge dons and clerics, immediately screams M. R. James. The plot, of a malevolent force being summoned up by a well meaning rector, could easily be an M. R. James story. The horror is very finely crafted and always subtle in the best tradition of ghost stories. The bleak fenland setting is also well described, although the soujourn to France midway through gets only a passing mention. This is probably for the best as too much Provencal sunshine could alter the mood and feel of the book. Only just over 200 pages, the book does not drag and is succintly written. This is the first Aycliffe book I have read, I look forward to picking up other works by the author.
