Why should you read this?
Kingfisher writes good dog.
No, not enough?
Kingfisher writes good leash?
Well, you would understand if you had a dog.
Kingfisher's novel is down right spooky. Mouse is suppose to be cleaning out her grandmother's old house but then something is tapping, tapping, tapping at the window.
The book works because of the excellent use of setting and character. Not only is Mouse believable but the supporting characters are wonderfully drawn.
Do not read before bedtime.
