Synopsis: 'Three friends set to work renovating a rundown house in a remote, totally isolated location. But they soon realize they are not as alone as they thought. Something wants them to leave. Meanwhile, in a nearby town, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son. When the two stories collide, the shocking truth becomes horribly clear.' (From the book cover).
Review: This is, indeed, creepy. However, the two tales do come together fairly seamlessly, Character development is good and she also does a good job of capturing the feeling of an isolated place in Iceland. ( )

Not my cup of tea - as a ghost story too blatant, as a who dunnit too gruesome. As a thriller - well I did get to the end. ( )

Underwhelming. ( )

If you are looking for a legitimately scary ghost story, here you go. I loved this creepy tale of a a group of friends that go to an island in winter to begin renovations on a house they've recently purchased. Their story alternates chapters with one of a doctor whose son went missing three years previously while he was playing a game of hide and seek.

I won't give away any plot and, honestly, if you summarize it sounds kind of silly anyway, but this really worked for me. Probably scary books aren't universally scary - I think a lot depends on your mood at the time - but I loved this. ( )

Book description
The crunching noise had resumed, now accompanied by a disgusting, indefinable smell. It could best by described as a blend of kelp and rotten meat. The voice spoken again, now slightly louder and clearer:

DON'T GO. DON'T GO YET. I'M NOT FINISHED.


In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a derelict house. But soon they realize they are not alone there — something wants them to leave, and it's making its presence felt.

Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly worman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son.

When the two stories collide, the terrifying truth is uncovered...

This horrifying thriller, partly based on a true story, is the scariest novel yet from an international bestseller.
