Megan’s best friend and business partner has just died and her relationship has reached crisis point. She packs the car and runs away with no money and no idea what to do. She is invited to work for famous film star Ross Huston to investigate the ghostly happenings at his home. But Megan keeps seeing a spectral black dog: could she be the next to die…?
Blind House is a spooky ghost story set in the UK.
Megan is at her lowest, grieving for her best friend, scared of her abusive boyfriend, no work and nowhere to live. She had planned to go into ghost hunting with Christina but is not sure she can go it alone. When Ross Huston asks her to advise on strange events, she can’t turn down the opportunity. Moving objects, odd noises, terrifying nightmares, a black dog that she has seen since the accident that killed her friend. It is spooky!
The book is mostly written in the present day but there are some chapters that show Megan’s recent past and others from 1878 which show a victim being tortured by a doctor. The physical and emotional torture is very unpleasant to read due to the graphic descriptions. However, this is in keeping with the horror genre and relevant to the plot.
As readers, we are fully supportive and hopeful for Megan as she faces the future and tries to put the past behind her. She has had a lot of suffering and now she has a new threat from a supernatural source. Meanwhile, in the present day the police are investigating missing women and suspect a link to the current occupants of the house. I was eager to see how the two timelines would converge and enjoyed trying to predict the plot.
Blind House is very sinister and atmospheric. I’d advise reading in daylight!
