Not Guy N Smith at his best I think, although still well worth reading as a good, tense story of fear in the Welsh countryside. Particularly liked the atmosphere of the snowbound cottage. Nicely done.

This is as fun as all the other Guy N Smith books, only it tries to be more suspenseful than the others. Some of the scenes in the book are great, especially the ones in the snowstorm. Pretty damn good

I was born on November 21, 1939, in the small village of Hopwas, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, England. My mother was a pre-war historical novelist (E. M. Weale) and she always encouraged me to write.
I was first published at the age of 12 in The Tettenhall Observer, a local weekly newspaper. Between 1952-57 I wrote 56 stories for them, many serialized. In 1990 I collated these into a book entitled
