This review was written for MM Good Book Reviews by Pixie.

This is Kiran Hunter’s debut story and after reading this story I think I may just start author hunting (and they are in my neck of the woods bwahhahaha).

Gareth and Tim are moving into a house that Gareth has inherited. It’s tucked away in a little village and Gareth thinks it’s the perfect place to show Tim he is serious about him. After all, there is no temptation, no nightclubs and no men to cheat with. Tim doesn’t really want to be th...more

Very clever and intelligent ghost story with a gay twist.I loved the efficiency of the language which only serves to chill further. I feel there could be more to come - from any of the three main characters.

This short story is immensely readable and entertaining.
Kiran Hunter proves to be a wizard at the writing craft, creating well-rounded, memorable characters in few words - characters that I'd very much like to meet again. Gareth inherits a house he's never seen and has no idea of its sinister history. In order to save his cooling relationship with Tim, he moves into the house in the middle of the countryside to avoid the temptations of city life, unaware of who, or what, lurks in the walls of t...more

I’d looked forward to reading Kiran Hunter’s debut release because it’s one of those hard-to-classify cross-genre stories that always intrigue me. A good old ghost story of the M R James variety, coupled – if I can be forgiven for using the word – with a gay relationship (I avoid the use of the word romance intentionally) between two asking-to-be-smacked middle class men from the Alan Hollinghurst school. The result is a wonderfully creepy, emotionally charged, sometimes explicit, short story th...more

I understand this is Kiran Hunter's first published work, but it is written with a maturity and sureness of touch I would normally expect from one with a number of books in circulation. It's a story of a house with a secret and a complex relationship in trouble. The story is fast-paced, without leaving the reader breathless, and is both original and compelling. Don't want to give anything away but I loved the ending too! Highly recommended for adults
This had an interesting premise and I rather liked it but the rushed and too open ending ruined it for me.
Nice cover, but the story is mediocre as a ghost story and a romance.

Kiran's early years were spent living in Cyprus and, later, in Hertfordshire and Kent, England. Cambridge is home now, but the mountains of Wales often beckon. Interests include psychology, philosophy, literature, art and music. Psychological thrillers fill the book case and rock music fills the house.

Kiran has always written… and figured it was time to unleash some of the many stories written ins...more
