    I really liked the premise of this book a woman emails a distant relative to find out about a woman whose children were horrifically murdered The relative, a writer, replies, and the whole book is a series of emails between the two Both of them have been withholding information from the other, which means that it is revealed slowly and cleverly to the reader as well I also really enjoyed how the true characters of these two women were revealed as the book progressed But after the initial intrig [...]

    Utterly breath taking The Night Visitors was everything I want from horror It envelops you, blocking out the background noise the telly, husband doing the washing up, the cat asking for treats and leaves you stuck inside your own mind, actively reminding your body to breathe A ghostly and thoroughly human tale.

    A murder mystery cum ghost story played out in a series of email exchanges Enjoyed the cattiness of the two, related, protagonists and the slow reveal of the layers of mystery Entertaining novella, never menacing but some nasty surprises lurking within

    Decently chilling and a quick read I d recommend reading it in one go, I think some of the impact of the ending was lost for me because I read the last ten pages a week after the rest of it.

    I really liked this book, but feel it probably requires a re read to pick up some of the details now that I get the ending But it was indeed very creepy and the format of having it be exclusively an email exchange between the two women was excellent I would love to read this book in a book group to get others opinions and to maybe help put the pieces in place.

    An eerie, many layered account of two women unravelling under the pressures of a vengeful family haunting.

    If you a love epistolary novels b like the everyday intertwining with horror c a meta novella that shows the perils of collaboration while being written collaboratively, then this will be up your street Read it in one sitting thoroughly enjoyable.
