'... a dreamy, involving delight, exerting a charmingly idiosyncratic pull on the reader. While she excels at rendering the domestic unheimlich, she is also brilliant at capturing the simple, comforting pleasures of a hot chocolate, a warm fire and true friends. This is Banham’s first novel and it augurs wonderful things to come.'
..a delightfully dark fantasy/horror/gothic race against otherworldly menaces. Being set in modern times but neatly nestling in the dark menacing corners of old town Edinburgh and a graveyard gives it a palpable chill. It ably brings together everything I liked about the older TV and movie horror shows, without any of the kitch.
'...so creepy you can feel it running its fingers down your spine as you read it. It takes a cold grip on you and just doesn't let go...
...Prudence's book-selling technique had me absolutely dying of laughter. I know so many booksellers who would love to be able to do that!
A dark and dangerous gift of a novel'
