An average gothic-mystery read for me - decent plot and suspense-building, character development somewhat limited, overly florid language. Pales in comparison to, say, The Alienist or Speaks the Nightbird which both did a much better job of setting a deep mysterious and dramatic tone without stepping off into the over-dramatic.
