A pacy, chilling psychological thriller, set to reinvent the genre. It begins, they say, with a woman screaming.... On a remote Scottish island, the McBride house stands guard over its secrets. A century ago, a young widow and her son died mysteriously there; just last year a local boy, visiting for a dare, disappeared without a trace. For Zoe Adams, newly arrived from America, the house offers a refuge from her failing marriage. But her peaceful retreat is disrupted by strange and disturbing events....

Terrible “Scottish” accents. The Scottish characters did not sound Scottish and the Islanders seemed to speak in a raspy whisper that was very annoying. The narrator’s speaking voice and American accents were lovely- just a dire attempt at sounding Scottish. The Story however, held my interest until the end.
