I was actually disappointed when this book ended because I had become so involved with the characters, action and events surrounding Malbed Mews. The basic plot is I'm sure one that has been covered before, but Panayi has brought her own special touch and at times sardonic humour to this story.
The plot revolves around a converted building that has been turned into a modern block of flats in London. As the first residents begin to take up residence in their shiny, new, modern homes, it is clear something is not as it should be. Our main character Guy does some research and discovers that the old building, much of which has been retained in the redevelopment was once a mental hospital.
Between the spirits of the previously dead patients and the evil that lurks in the basement of this building there is non-stop action and excitement from the opening page.
I absolutely loved this novel and would recommend it to anyone who likes horror and mystery.
I will definitely be checking out more of this author's work. She is clearly talented. No questions here, this book rates a resounding 5 stars! Excellent work May J Panayi.
