A terrifying ghost story from the Queen of Icelandic crime, Yrsa Sigurdardottir, author of the Thora Gudmundsdottir novels.

'Yrsa is one of the most exciting new voices in the crime thriller world.' - Peter James

The crunching noise had resumed, now accompanied by a disgusting, indefinable smell. It could best be described as a blend of kelp and rotten meat. The voice spoke again, now slightly louder and clearer:
Don't go. Don't go yet. I'm not finished .

In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a derelict house. But soon they realise they are not alone there - something wants them to leave, and it's making its presence felt.

Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son.

When the two stories collide the terrifying truth is uncovered . . .

This is an original page turner! The book starts out lighthearted and gradually feels heavier. You develop empathy for the characters and get to know the characters well. The book is intense and exciting. So this is not the best choice if you are looking for a relaxing bedtime read. The book listed as "Suspense" seems to fall under several genres including horror, paranormal/ghosts, mystery suspense crime fiction....

Probably one of the eeriest books I've ever read. A page-turner.

A scary fun read. The author built suspense by switching between two story lines at key points. Can't wait to check out her other titles.

Two parallel stories that come together in the end. A very scary and riveting book.

I rarely read "ghost" stories but I am very glad that I read this one. Along the lines of Henry James' Turn of the Screw, this marvelous book is suspenseful, intriguing and remains with you for days afterwards.

I have read 5 of this author's books and have enjoyed them all. Most have some element of the supernatural related to Icelandic myths which is actually based on natural phenomenon. This book is a change in that her usual characters are not involved. This book also involves the supernatural, but this time it involves ghosts. I do not generally read ghost stories and kept waiting for a physical explanation. For this reason I did not enjoy the novel. There was a lot of tension and suspence which did make it an interesting read.
