Highly Recommended.

Before embarking on his bestselling series of Roy Grace crime novels Peter James wrote many bestselling supernatural thrillers. With The House on Cold Hill he makes a return to this genre. All James’ books are informed by a fascination with how the world works and the tricks these workings can play on people and this novel is no exception. The cover, the title and the opening scenes all suggest that we are in for a classic ghost story. After a sly and shocking bit of misdirection with the opening chapter we are soon in the territory of the bright young metropolitan family arriving in their new dream country home only to find that old houses come with secrets and history.


But there is something else going on here. Yes there are ghostly apparitions but in amongst an almost comical series of architectural disasters as they discover the true horror of the nightmares hinted at in the structural survey, there is something else very interesting going on here. To say more would be to invite spoilers so let’s just say that time is an odd thing and very little is as we perceive it. This is a hugely readable book (the pages really do fly by) and James creates engaging characters and keeps us with them with expertly delivered shocks and twists. Anyone who loves ghost stories, any fan of Stephen King, is going to have a lot of fun (and a lot of surprises) in The House on Cold Hill.
