批評家のレビュー

"Compelling, intelligent and increasingly mesmerising." (Peter James)

"At once a homage to the Gothic thriller, and a re-imagining, it is goose-bump spooky, smart, and haunting, in every sense. I loved this book! And you will too." (Louise Penny) 

"Compelling, intelligent and increasingly mesmerising." (Peter James) 

あらすじ・解説

A dark story has been brought to terrifying life. Can the ending be rewritten in time?

A gripping contemporary Gothic thriller from the best-selling author of the Dr Ruth Galloway mysteries: Susan Hill meets Gone Girl and Disclaimer.

Clare Cassidy is no stranger to tales of murder. As a literature teacher specialising in the Gothic writer R. M. Holland, she teaches a short course on them every year. Then Clare's life and work collide tragically when one of her colleagues is found dead, a line from an R. M. Holland story by her body. The investigating police detective is convinced the writer's works somehow hold the key to the case.

Not knowing whom to trust, and afraid that the killer is someone she knows, Clare confides her darkest suspicions and fears about the case to her journal. Then one day she notices some other writing in the diary. Writing that isn't hers....

Intriguing & different!

A totally different style of writing, than the Ruth Galloway series. In some ways also seemed to be written by a different. Relatable characters, with a truly surprising ending. I have mixed feeling about this book. Will definitely listen again after some time. Not sure if I would buy anther in this series, if it will be a series!

Never ending

This book just dragged on and on and on. Characters boring and hardly thrilling as some readers have said. I think they must have read s different book. I thought it was never going to end. If you are an insomniac then this book Is worth a go.

Good but not as expected from synopsis

Enjoyed the story overall but not really what I expected so just a little disappointed in a way I can't go into without a spoiler. Very satisfying with an unexpected twist nonetheless.

Tedious twaddle

Elly does it again

I was hesitant as this is the first book that isnt part of the Bones series. But incredible- the author has such a talent for writing people in such a natural way. I got the twist early on but that didnt stop me enjoying it at all! Loved it

well executed

nice use of 3 narrative voices being read by 3 different narrators. lots of potential suspects for you to guess at who submit, although the end was a bit flat

Ellie Griffiths just get better and better

I loved this book. It was captivating and gripping from beginning to end. In old-fashioned parlance a real page turner.

The conceit of the book is creative and unusual. Ellie Griffiths uses the literary device of telling the story from different perspectives as the listener travels through the journey of the story with overlapping narrations from different characters. This style keeps the plot twisting and turning as the suspense gradually mounts drawing the listening in.

I live along south coast and really enjoyed the whole story being set in areas that I know. It all added to the realism of the tale.

Having different narrators also kept the listener’ s interest and it made it more like a dramatise play.

I have read all of Ellie Griffiths books and enjoyed each one of them and I’m always on the lookout for a new book being released. This one really is the best she has written yet.

I thoroughly recommend it and am now waiting for the next new book.

Murder Mystery or Ghost Story??

Simple answer is both.Very clever piece that kept me gripped from page one to the unique climax.

A great read

I'm a fan of the Ruth Galloway series but I really enjoyed the different direction that this book took. The literary & gothic elements were effective and enjoyable. The varied PoV was refreshing and engaging.

Disappointing

I liked the Ruth Galloway books, although the endless Ruth/Nelson situation got a bit tedious towards the end, so thought I would enjoy this book by the same author. That was a mistake.

The characters were for the most part unappealing. I really didn’t like the female police officer and would have been very anxious as a victim of crime if she’d been investigating my case. She and her partner bumbled along and really got almost nowhere. The voice of the narrator who read her part was irritating and her pronunciation was poor.

Georgie was a pain, and her mother not much better. The dog was the only truly likeable character.

The resolution to the mystery was so unlikely as to be almost laughable.

The Stranger story within a story was melodramatic and a bit silly.

I might have to give up on Elly Griffiths.
