The Caleighs have had a terrible year. They need time and space, while they await the news they dread. Gabe has brought his wife, Eve, and daughters, Loren and Cally, down to Devon, to the peaceful seaside village of Hollow Bay. He can work, and Eve and the kids can have some peace and quiet - and perhaps they can try, as a family, to come to terms with what's happened to them.

Crickley Hall is an unusually large house on the outskirts of the village at the bottom of Devil's Cleave, a massive tree-lined gorge, the stuff of local legend. A river flows past the front garden. It's perfect for them, if a bit gloomy. And Chester, their dog, seems really spooked at being away from home. And old houses do make sounds. And it's constantly cold. And even though they shut the cellar door every night, it's always open again in morning.

The Secret of Crickley Hall is James Herbert's finest novel to date. It explores the darker, more obtuse territories of evil and the supernatural. With brooding menace and rising tension, he masterfully and relentlessly draws the listener through to the ultimate revelation: one that will stay to chill the mind long after the book has been laid aside.

    " This story contains exactly what i want in a haunted house tale, an enjoyable read in the dark late at night by candlelight. "

    " I have been a James Herbert fan since 'The Rats' was first published and have enjoyed most of his books. This particular novel wasn't exactly bad; it has a good storyline, but I felt that the story was overly long and drawn out. "

    " The most cliched and poorly edited of any Herbert novel I have yet read. Wanted to read his next novel but have now decided against it. Very disappointing. "

    " S'alright!! Not the sort of edgy, scary novel I remember Herbert used to produce ...almost ground to a halt at one stage....far too long a detour into Maurice Stafford's past!!! "
