Puppet Graveyard by Tim Curran

This is the story of Kitty. One day she receives a letter that contains a lock of hair - she knows it's her sisters and sets out to find out what has happened to her. She knows she worked for a ventriloquist so she starts her search there. Soon she learns secrets she wishes she hadn't and things take a very sinister turn.....

This was brilliant! It was scary and atmospheric and creepy and did I mention scary? So much so that I had to step away from it for a bit as it was freaking me out a little. I love a book that can do that - even better as this was a novella. Busting at the seams with witchcraft and malevolence, this was definitely a wild ride - not one for the easily scared. I recommend it totally!

  1. Interesting review. Also an intriguing one. There are so many good books out there, one does not have time for them all. Best of luck on this one.
