I’ve been strapped to a chair and had my eyelids pinned open while a demonic hand turned the pages of Haverscroft by S A Harris. I had no choice other than to be riveted by this book.
For me, it’s the uncertainty of the characters’ motives stacking up the tension amid an onslaught of supernatural events that makes Haverscroft a real page-turner. The story feels dense but the uncomplicated writing has a clarity that dissipates this making it a very satisfying read. I was able to visualise well the believable characters to the extent where I even felt reassured by the presence of Riley, the yappy little dog!
A great, modern ghost story.
