Fairly good psychological thriller with a supernatural flavour

House of Spines - Michael Malone

 

This novel by Michael Malone deals with Ranald, a young Scotsman with mental health issues, who inherits a large house and a family of which he was unaware. The plot develops around supernatural goings-on, manipulation by those around him. In the end, it becomes difficult to know whom to trust as he does not know what is the result of his illness or of other people's actions.

Quite good but I preferred the author's previous novel, A Suitable Lie. It is reasonably engaging with many dark moments and vivid descriptions.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
