This is the tale of a deadly conspiracy, an all-consuming obsession and an unlikely heroine. Michael Aldridge, talented architect and devoted family man, has built his dream home on the Isle of Wight, but when strange coincidences take a sinister turn, he must uncover a long-forgotten secret before it's too late. A wonderfully sinister new novella from the master of the chilling ghost story, The Going and the Rise questions how far you would go to realise your dream...and what you would risk to protect the one you love.

I enjoyed this book, and liked the tone and sound and listening to the narrator who was a very pleasant reader, he took his time and used lovely intonation during speech to “voice “ his characters
Although I wished the story was a little longer the ending felt like it had cut the story short a bit too early
Some of the language used is brilliant, and I really loved this book
