When builder Terry Johnson spots what he thinks is a bargain he can’t resist but to succumb to temptation. The large, detached house stands on the side of a railway track and would be perfect for his needs … and it’s cheap!
But Billington Manor has a very tainted history, and the grounds upon which it stands were part of an unsolved murder back in the 1850s. Terry is about to discover that the road to hell is not always paved with good intentions.
Based upon a true incident, Ryder On The Storm is a stand-alone supernatural crime novella from the author of the IMP series, featuring desk sergeant Maurice Cragg.
Supernatural is a genre that I don’t read very often, but I was intrigued by the blurb and I have read and thoroughly enjoyed another book by this author, so I did not want to miss out on this one.
Maybe I am a softie but everything was creepy about this book : the people, the setting, the atmosphere.
It was a short story that can go on and on and on.
Sometimes things you did in the past can come and haunt you, but what if YOU were not responsible and YOU still are being haunted …
A very chilling read. 5 stars.
Thank you, Ray Clark and Love Book Group Tours.
