The Séance by John Harwood

seance_harwood.jpgYou may have noticed we're big fans of Wilkie Collins here at the library (check out Maria's and Dan's reviews). There's nothing quite like a gripping gothic ghost story on a windy winter night. I'm not ashamed to admit the haunting black and white cover image was what first drew my attention to Australian writer John Harwood's second novel, The Séance, but it was the promise of an eerie old English manor house, long lost relatives, family madness, and unsolved disappearances that held my interest. Much like Wilkie's tales, The Séance pulls you into the Victorian-era with an unraveling mystery told through multiple narrators. The suspense is gripping and you quickly learn that nothing is as it seems. This is a don't miss for all Wilkie Collins lovers.
