I can't imagine why they keep redoing Jamaica Inn when this would make an excellent drama for TV with a few minor plot alterations. It has setting, eeriness, a smidgen of romance (more would be too much), an electric wheelchair (this is 1914 and power wheelchairs were decades away), trains, a sinister villain, espionage, golf... What more could one want?
The sinister atmosphere and suspense was almost unbearable. A cracking good read.
