Poor Everton! The town is a disaster, but it's delightfully horrifying to watch its demise. Top-notch stories from wonderful crime writers make this book powerful and tense. I really enjoyed it.

Loved this creepy, gothic tale that has everything for me: ghosts, spooky houses, writers, and claustrophobic small towns. Wonderfully plotted and a delight to read. Can't wait to read more of Carol Goodman's books.
