The Caleighs have had a terrible year...They need time and space, while they await the news they dread. Gabe has brought his wife, Eve, and daughters, Loren and Cally, down to Devon, to the peaceful seaside village of Hollow Bay. He can work and Eve and the kids can have some peace and quiet and perhaps they can try, as a family, to come to terms with what's happened to them...Crickley Hall is an unusually large house on the outskirts of the village at the bottom of Devil's Cleave, a massive tree-lined gorge - the stuff of local legend. A river flows past the front garden. It's perfect for them...if it a bit gloomy. And Chester, their dog, seems really spooked at being away from home. And old houses do make sounds. And it's constantly cold. And, even though they shut the cellar door every night, it's always open again in morning.

I watched the 3-hour BBC movie based upon the book, before I knew there WAS a book. The show was so intriguing I just had to read the book (I prefer books to videos anyway). The book is awesome, hard to put down, addictive and of course, even better than the movie. Even my tweenage and teenage grandchildren were amazingly silent and awed as they watched the show; a miracle. My granddaughter has asked me to get the book for her for Christmas.

Found this book hard to put down and James Herbert made the bad guy truely evil. Loved it.
