Ive watched the film of this book, made in 1964, several times over the years and always thought it was an interesting idea and was shot very atmospherically. I finally managed to get a copy of the book and I really do recommend the book. Having watched the film first the book offers a deeper insight into the characters and it really is more dramatic. The whole story centers on tne two main characters, Myra, a self proclaimed psychic and medium, and her husband Bill. Its only 176 pages and only has 4 chapters. However, the author draws you into their world as you live out "the plan" along with them. The plan is to kidnap a young girl then Myra will proclaim she knows where she is and become a highly sought after medium. Obviously as with all plans it doesnt go as planned! Considering its content its quire a slow gentle read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
