Review by: Ann Michaels on Jan. 09, 2017 :
I really loved the almost leisurely pace of this story and the way it unfolded. I also liked how the more sophisticated ‘townies’, who were visiting the ‘north folk’, found that they had meandered into another time; almost another world. Having ancestors from Norfolk and having visited two years ago, I found that I was able to visualise what I was reading and the memories flooded back.

I wont attempt to equal the well-written reviews of my predecessors; merely add that I also enjoyed this story and found it atmospheric and enjoyable.

Review by: Michael Carter on Nov. 19, 2012 :
Interesting ghost story about a mysterious tavern. This is very well-written and the author conjures up an atmosphere of mists and slow canal days and nights, with a slow build-up of expectation, similar to Jonathan Aycliffe and M.R.James [Indeed, I believe Aycliffe's A SHADOW ON THE WALL was also set in East Anglia]. It is obvious that the author knows their way around the area and about boating on the canals. The only problem I had with this story was the conclusion and explanation - I thought it could have had more relevance in the rest of the story, the final "twist" seems to come from nowhere. Still, good atmosphere, and I will read more of this author.

Review by: Audrey Driscoll on May 14, 2011 :
I enjoyed this story. It's quietly told, with a slow up-ratcheting of tension. The setting was another plus for me. I've never been to the Norfolk Broads, except in imagination, courtesy of Arthur Ransome. I enjoyed seeing the place names I was familiar with from his books in a totally different context. As a ghost story, this reminded me of M.R. James -- the same literate, understated creepiness. I recommend it.
