Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.

WHAT A SCHEMER!! A brilliant strategist was author Stuart James who knew how to take vulnerability and place it in a do or die situation and see it modify into strength. The author could twist me like a pretzel, scare me into screaming like a banshee, all the while smiling like the crazed clown. Talk about masochism, won’t ya!! I asked for this book, I demanded for this tour. And I was granted the wish of having my heart go through a massive workout.

Jake, a plumber, shifted with his wife and kid to the house on Rectory Lane, wanting a quiet and peaceful lifestyle. Soon they found a video in the attic of the family who were living before them and who had disappeared one fine day. Vamoosh!! Things happened, soon Jake and his family were fighting for their lives.

A massive horrifying thriller, where the darkness oozed down the pages, slowly overpowering and swallowing the light. A happy family living in the open and light were soon shown to live in fear in a fishbowl. The words brought out the creepy feeling in me, I was easily startled while reading this.

The characters were real, their situationseemed surreal. I looked at everything with suspicion trying to solve the plot. The author could shift the mood with the sleight of his hand, from comfort and thrill, I went down to being downright terrified at times.

I wanted a particular ending in the book as my mind over schemed, trying to out-do the author, and when the epilogue gave me that twist, I was over the moon. I loved the author for giving me a brilliant finish to a fantastic thriller, which completely sucked me in and overpowered my senses.

This book and this author…make me speechless.

I received a free ARC from Sarah and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Jake and Kate live in Camden, London and have had enough of the hassle with parking, overbooked restaurants and burglaries.
After an altercation with a stranger who pulls a knife on Jake, they take their son Sean and move to a house in the woods.
It’s their dream home, or so they think.
People in the village warn them they shouldn’t have come.
Neighbours are overly friendly and who was the face at the window Kate saw late at night?
They find a tape hidden in the loft of their new house, a homemade video recording of the previous family, the Prescotts.
What they view, chills them to the bone.
They realise that the family living there before them have disappeared and now, they could be next………………..

  1. There are different ways a house can be haunted. With the noble location Camden a good read too. Thank you for the review, Shalini! Enjoy the new week, and stay save! Michael

  2. I’m not sure I relish the prospect of being twisted into a pretzel, but the rest sounds very very good!
    Moving in a new house always brings in a lot of anxiety, and if it comes after an irrational attack, no wonder it’s a horror story.
    Great review, Shalini!
