Summary

A chilling ghost story set in the haunting wilderness of Suffolk.

When Lizzy moves to a desolate shore to escape her past, she hopes to find sanctuary. But a mysterious stranger is waiting for her, her father's carer, and when darkness falls, something roams this wild stretch of beach, urging Lizzy to investigate its past. The longer she stays, the more the shore's secrets begin to stir. Secrets of a sea that burned, of bodies washed ashore - and a family's buried past reaching into the present.

And when Lizzy begins to suspect that her father's carer is a dangerous impostor with sinister motives, a new darkness rises. What happens next is everyone's living nightmare....

From the best-selling author of The Ghost Hunters and The Lost Village, The Haunted Shore is a terrifying tale of suspense that does not let up until the last minute.

Unmitigated misery

I am very disappointed having pre ordered the title as I enjoyed Neil Springs previous books and couldn't wait to start listening. I gave up at chapter 7. Seven chapters of unmitigated misery, boring unsympathetic characters who I couldn't care less about was enough. I could not give a monkeys what became of Lizzie and even the hauntings were dull.

Chilling

At the start I did wonder if i was listening to the right book, however once we got further into it boy did it have me hooked.

What drew me in the most was the fact that it take place on one of my favourite bits of coastline which really made me feel like i was a character in the book.

AWESOME

Not for me

I couldn’t get on with this. The main character isn’t very believable- Oxbridge educated and yet speaks in Americanism. Supposedly highly qualified and yet makes stupid asinine errors. I couldn’t get past chapter one!
