Loved this book. Some quite creepy chilling bits. A really interesting blend of modern medical care in warfare with historical aspects of the great military hospital in Aldershot currently mouldering away waiting for developers to turn it into the flats that are part of this story. Evoked some great memories of my time as a QARANC nurse and of working at this very hospital in the 1980s/90s

This book is not so much a ghost story but an exploration of nursing techniques in World War I and the modern day. Clearly written by someone who has first hand experience, there are no punches pulled in the descriptions of warfare and the carnage it creates.
In the current day, Scott is a medic and returning to work after convalescence. He has just moved into a flat with his fiancé Naomi. These flats are a conversion of an ex-military hospital and the titular Grey Lady Ghost roams the building.

Having started my nurse training at the Cambridge Military Hospital as a QA in 1973, and finishing my military service there in 1983 I have extremely happy memories of this hospital and the friends I made there.

This isn't a book for the faint-hearted.
It contains very graphic details of the courage and work entailed in being a military nurse during the various wars. It also contains many facts concerning this which are very interesting.
I think the author has written this well and the story line at the end was unexpected.
It's not a book I would read in bed before going to sleep, I have been reading it before getting up.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I came across it while browsing on Amazon, what a lucky find! I myself are from Aberdeen the "Doric" references and local places I could relate to, also my 2 sons are in the army - both been in Afghanistan on operation Herrick, one son was based in Aldershot, I'm going to pass it on to my son to read. Great story looking forward to the next book.
