Ghosts have always walked there. Now they’re not alone…
In the depths of Edinburgh, an evil presence is released. Hannah and her colleagues are tour guides who lead their visitors along the spooky, derelict Henderson Close, thrilling them with tales of spectres and murder. For Hannah it is her dream job, but not for long. Who is the mysterious figure that disappears around a corner? What is happening in the old print shop? And who is the little girl with no face?
The legends of Henderson Close are becoming all too real. The Auld De’il is out – and even the spirits are afraid.
I thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable story – I love Scotland and Edinburgh and was lucky enough to visit The Real Mary King’s Close and do one of the many tours that takes you in to the underground vaults so I couldn’t wait to get started with this one!
I thought that the writing style was excellent, it had a great flow to the story and I was really in to the story. I thought that the characters were excellent and I loved how the story built up and developed as the book progressed.
The ending was a bit of an unexpected twist for me and I really enjoyed how the book ended. It isn’t an overly scary book but there were times when I will admit that I did have a bit of a shudder!
Four stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed the setting and the characters and the alternate time periods too – highly recommended!!

I live with a long-suffering husband and a delightful black cat who has never forgotten that her species used to be worshipped in ancient Egypt. She sees no reason why that practice should not continue. Who am I to argue?
