REVIEWED BY JOHN DOUGLAS MARSHALL

NOVEL
Struggling to keep their threadbare country estate after World War II, the Ayres family becomes enmeshed with a local doctor of humble origins. Malevolent threats proliferate inside Hundreds Hall, followed by tragedies. With its subtly orchestrated suspense and spot-on portrayal of English class divisions, Waters' literary ghost story delights.
