    Somehow it doesn’t seem quite right that I’ve been reading Call of the Curlew sitting in my garden in the bright sunshine.  The atmosphere of the book is such that it seems more suited to misty autumn nights, with the rain lashing down outside and the wind rattling the window panes.  Throw in some creaking floorboards, some footsteps in the attic and your reading experience would be complete.

    A haunting, atmospheric and ever-so-chilling novel, set partially in present day but mostly seventy-five years ago, with a beautifully bleak setting (isolated house in the middle of an expansive saltmarsh).
