    " Quintessential creepy Ruth Rendell. This is part of the Harper Short Novels series, which I didn't know about until now -- a haunting, eerie psychological thriller / ghost story. Halloween-time reading. "

    " This book absolutely bored me. Although written as a ghost story/mystery, I didn't think there was anything "scary" about it. I pretty much realized with this book and another Rendell mystery, that she is not one of my favorite writers. "
