Summary

At the height of the Cold War, officials at the Ministry of Defence conducted a highly secret investigation into unusual events that occurred along a strip of rugged Pembrokeshire coastline. The events made national headlines: objects hovering in the sky, ghostly figures peering into windows and poltergeists plaguing a terrified family.

Thirty years later, the official files were finally released for public scrutiny and prompted a new witness to come forward. His testimony rocked the very foundations of the British Government. This is his story.

Critic reviews

"Spring's fast-paced but often deliciously creepy novel has an orphaned hero, a spooky, isolated farmhouse and things that go bump in the night...highly readable." ( Herald Scotland)
"A triumph of creativity.... Pick it up as soon as you can and see if you can unravel the mystery of the Broad Haven Triangle - the conclusion will shock and amaze you." ( Vada Magazine)

An enjoyable mix....

A neat twist on Doctor Who - The Daemons with a dash of The Curse of Fenric. Well written and performed. Looking forward to more in this series as well as further adventures of Harry Price.

Creepy

Couldn't wait to listen to it again. Addictive listening with fantastic narration . Made all the more creepy by the fact that I live in Wales.

Really riveting.

Really good story fictionally based on truths. It swings your mind from one idea to the next and ends up with something completely different which many would also consider the truth....

I would prefer to watch the X Files any day!

What disappointed you about The Watchers?

It was OK up to the point when it started to go all "Demon Catcher"

What could Neil Spring have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not plagiarised the X Files! I see in his notes at the end that there was no mention of this excellent TV series but parts of the book were taken straight from some of the episodes - namely the description of "dancing" UFOs over the airfield.(Ep: "Deep Throat") and other story lines and descriptions.

What didn’t you like about Leighton Pugh’s performance?

I did not really like the odd gruff voice he had for the narrator, Robert, but worse still was the horrible high pitched voice he used for women and some male characters. It just went straight through me and I had to turn the volume down really low on a few occasions.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, and at the end, total confusion!!!

Any additional comments?

I kept going with it as I thought the original premise a good one, but it was just too complicated and a little stupid in places.
