Barrymore Tebbs' writing combines the brooding atmosphere of the Gothic novel with the unexpected twists and turns of the Psychological Thriller to create "historical, doom-laden creepfests about people struggling (and often failing) to make sense of the situations they find themselves in."
He is as much inspired by the garish imagery and overwrought story lines from Hammer Films and Dark Shadows as he is by the subtle finesse of 20th Century writers such as Shirley Jackson, Daphne Du Maurier, and Thomas Tryon.
He is also the owner of the weblog, The Midnight Room, where he writes occasional commentary about Gothic art, fiction, and film.

An entertaining story with a wonderful sense of atmosphere, both of the 60s and of Hampton Close, a house to beware of. The author does a good job of enticing you into the story and gradually increasing the suspense.
