really liked it

A House of Ghosts takes the comforting old format of big, isolated country house filled with early 20th century posh people bumping each other off and adds three twists; ghosts, espionage and uncertainty about what happened during a particular event at the Front. The hosts and most of the house guests have lost loved ones due to the war and so they reach out to spiritualists to contact the dead. Meanwhile, the host, a weapons manufacturer, responsibility in the deaths is questioned.

I liked this because it took an old format and played with it cleverly, I also liked the lead character (if I’d been the heroine I would have been swooning too), however, I don’t know, I didn’t fall as enthusiastically into this book as much as I thought I would, considering the synopsis.
