LoveReading View on The Death Chamber

A story of sadness and a lost past with repercussions echoing down the years from the First World War to the present. There is murder, blackmail and many hidden secrets but it is the effect of the past on the living that this book really illustrates. The unfolding of tragic lives and the mysteries surrounding them make for a very unusual and completely hypnotic book. Highly recommended.
