Wow! What a tense and chilling read that was!! From the start you are thrown into quite a chain of shocking events and the consequences of these are felt throughout the book, and leads to some very dark places for some of the characters!
Clara Jones seems to be doing her best to put an abusive relationship behind her by hiding away and creating a new life for herself. And life as an estate agent brings her to Boleskine House, a substantial home in an idyllic spot on the banks of Loch Ness, but it’s a house with a very dark past and legends last a long time in this part of the world. She decides to take matters into her own hands to try and get a quicker sale and this leads to devastating consequences!
Oswald is a man on a mission – and his mission is that he must own Boleskine. For what purpose it is unclear to begin with , but Clara soon finds herself drawn into an extremely unsettling and disturbing world – one she’d thought she’d left behind when she left London.
There are a number of characters in this book who are deeply unpleasant, and that just adds to the bleak and terrifying situations that poor Clara finds herself put in. It’s one of those books that just gets your blood pumping with all the action and alarming dark twists and turns! The action never seems to let up and I found myself gasping in shock on many occasions throughout! It’s one of those books that definitely leaves a lasting and chilling impression!
