I usually love Barbara Michaels' work, but I just really couldn't get in to this book.
Was not one of Barbara's best. A group of people get together to discuss unsolved mysteries.
This book will send chills down your spine and make you jump at things that go bump in the night<
A story as frightening by daylight as it is by darkness>>>
I usually finish a Barbara Michaels in about 3 days. Not getting it at all.
A nother great book from Barbar Michaels I think one of her best
I'm not sure what Michaels is trying to do here--a Sherlock Holmes pastiche crossed with an Amityville Horror? An interesting idea, but it isn't too successful in my view.
From back cover:
Those present include Harry Houdini, Sir Arthur ConanDoyle, psychoanalyst Nandor Fodor, and a writer who rivals them all with her sleuthing talent. These masters of mystery are about to put their minds to a pair of ghoulish stories--of families beset by poltergeistly pranks and bewitched by inexplicable horrors. Gripping puzzles, yes, but the terror of these tales is all too vicious and all too real.In the hollows of Tennessee, a family is threatened by a dire spirit whose warnings of despair and death come frighteningly true....In a small Connecticut town, a newly married widow and her children move into her second husband's home to find their lives possessed by an unimaginable demon....Were these villains phantom spirits or evildoers of flesh and blood? Dare to find out in this masterful delight from Barbara Michaels--a tale as frightening by daylight as it is by darkness."
