I really enjoyed reading it. I liked the analysis of how a group of people can be influenced....and I liked discovering each of the characters - especially the special one first mentioned in the prologue.

Writing about unexciting people in unexciting places—assuming there are such things--is risky for obvious reasons. Kudos to Cameron Trost for accepting the challenge with Letterbox. The story itself is potentially dramatic: an old woman in a Cornish village finds a skull in her letterbox and believes it to be that of her long-dead husband. Unfortunately, the narrative potential of this discovery is outweighed by stylistic and technical problems. Instead of taking wing, Letterbox plods.

Cameron Trost concocts tales that mix a strong dose of mystery with a hint of familiarity and dares you, Dear Reader, to drink deeply of his strange brew.

The characters who roam his tales of mystery and suspense include a botanist whose love for his rare plants is deep-rooted, a businessman who finds himself in the library of a stately Scottish manor, and an English couple on 'honeymoon' in a remo
