If you really want to waste your time on this utterly predictable and poorly written “thriller”, then save yourself some time: read up to chapter 22 then skip to chapter 46 and finish the book by skim reading to the end. You won’t miss a thing.

I love Linwood Barclay and don't think he gets nearly enough attention. I like to suggest him for fans of Harlan Coben, but he really does have his own take on the thriller/suspense novel. This one was especially good, and a bit of a departure for Barclay. When Paul starts hearing the old typewriter his wife got him clicking away in the middle of the night, it seems impossible that it could be anything but ghosts. Like a locked door mystery, he and his wife are certain no one could have gotten in. Which leaves ghosts, or the possibility that Paul is going crazy after the terrifying even that kicks off the book. Either way, this is a page-turner that I guarantee will keep you from guessing all of the twists.

I have read almost all of this author books. Not sure if it was just me, but I did not grasp the first couple chapters of this book. Put it down and read other books. When I picked it up again I got the story line and continued reading. Really enjoyed this book once my brain kicked in. Really enjoy all the books written by this author.

This is the first book by this author in which I was disappointed. Much of the plot was a little too obvious. It felt like it was a book written in a hurry.

Wow. So many positive comments on this book!
I've read all of Barkclay's novels & enjoyed every one of them... until now.
I just could not empathize with the main character.
I tried.

I thought the book was excellent! Great creepy story with several plot-lines. The ending made complete sense. Enough characters to keep the story interesting, but not so many that I couldn’t keep track of them. Very well written.

Another compelling psych thriller with twists and surprising turnabouts that kept me reading until late into the night. An excellent book.
