The ending was not really up to much. It ended with a whimper rather than a bang. It left me feeling a bit hard done by. What was the point of the story exactly. Stories are meant to move from A to B. On occasion you even get a C or D thrown in. Think of what the book version of the movie INCEPTION, for instance might be like. Instead this moves awkwardly from A to C and back again.

It started so well, but the author, like some of his characters could not or would not roam to far away from home,even through there were numerous possibilities. It was unsatisfactory. ( )

Epigraph
I would like my pictures to look as if a human being had passed between them, like a snail, leaving a trail of the human presence and memory of the past events as the snail leaves its slime.

Francis Bacon, 1909-1992
Dedication
For Ramsey Campbell,
Peter Crowther and John Jarrold
First words
When he heard the noise, Seth stopped and stared, as if trying to see through the front door of apartment sixteen, the teak veneer aglow with a golden sheen. (Prologue)

Some doors are better left closed...In Barrington House, an upmarket block in London, there is an empty apartment. No one goes in, no one comes out. And it's been that way for fifty years. Until the night watchman hears a disturbance after midnight and investigates. What he experiences is enough to change his life forever. A young American woman, Apryl, arrives at Barrington House. She's been left an apartment by her mysterious Great Aunt Lillian who died in strange circumstances. Rumours claim Lillian was mad. But her diary suggests she was implicated in a horrific and inexplicable event decades ago. Determined to learn something of this eccentric woman, Apryl begins to unravel the hidden story of Barrington House. She discovers that a transforming, evil force still inhabits the building. And the doorway to Apartment 16 is a gateway to something altogether more terrifying...
