For Ellen March, the secluded old house nestled in the pine woods is more than the dream home she's long been searching for. It's an escape, a chance to start over, to forget the pain of her failed marriage and enjoy the restful pace of small-town living. Here, too, is a golden opportunity to get to know Norman McKay, her handsome and worldly new neighbor. But after dark in Ellen's "perfect" house, strange visions invade her restless mind: silent strangers moving through the twilight shadows, the ghostly figure of a woman and a spectral white cat. Ellen came here hoping to bury the past, but something terrifying has taken its place. Her safe haven has become her prison . . . and there is no escape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast-paced, thrilling suspense ride!! What a GREAT story!! Barbara Michaels (aka Elizabeth Peters) is really an amazing author! She seems to have an unending list of incredible stories in her head. Then she peoples them with amazing characters and comes up with books you can't put down. When Ellen March gets her first look at the secluded house in the woods, she instantly falls in love and insists on buying it. With a severe case of "empty nest" syndrome to deal with, not to mention an impossible unrequited love, Ellen is looking for a peaceful place to lick her wounds and build a new and solitary life for herself. Ellen has no concerns about the house's reputation of being haunted by the ghost of a woman who lived in it a hundred years ago and who was thought to be a witch by the ignorant and superstitious townspeople of that time, even though the woman was found hanged in her own bedroom - now Ellen's bedroom - in what *might* have been suicide. Ellen also isn't disturbed by the unwelcoming reception SHE receives from the locals, who aren't much different from the religious-fevered, superstitious people of a century ago. At least, she isn't worried at first. But her charming neighbour, Norman's teenaged nephew Tim is another matter. A very troubled boy who appears to have extremely violent and disturbing tendancies immediately fires up Ellen's maternal streak and she gets involved, trying to get Norman to take the boy for therapy. All the underlying fears and anger come to a shocking and explosive climax, which moves very fast and keeps the reader flying through the pages to see how things turn out, who was the real evil villain, and how things end. A completely excellent read filled with suspense, clever twists and turns and really engaging characters. Highly recommended!
