HOUSE OF SPINES by Michael J Malone
General Fiction (Adult) , Mystery & Thrillers
Ranald McGhie or Ran, grew up with a unstable mother and strict father. At 18, his parents committed suicide leaving him penniless and without kin, that is until an unknown rich great-uncle on his mother’s side left him a vast house as an inheritance. An inheritance that came with stipulations. Ran, following in his mother’s footsteps and already at odds with his own psychosis, becomes even more unhinged by the secrets the house holds. Secrets or ghosts?
This story was excellent! All the facets of a great mystery – suspense, foreboding, intrigue, paranoia. As the suspense built and the story unwound, it just got more and more enthralling. The house had a creepy, ominous feel that left one I’ll at ease and at times, chilled to the bone. I left such an impression on me, I even dreamt about it. A page turner to the very end! I rate this novel 5 stars.
