I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Another wonderful review Olga. I don’t think I could read this one. As intriguing as the subject is, I would find it uncomfortable to read. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. The author knows how to create an eerie atmosphere, that’s for sure. She’s written books which are not in the horror genre, that I am very curious about (as she’s an antique’s expert). Enjoy the rest of the week and the many books on your list. 🙂

        Thanks Olga. Enjoy your week too. 🙂

  2. I am really into horror at the moment, Olga. A great sounding book.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. You might want to check Painted by the same author, as well. Another great read (and as I know you like to research old objects and are interested in their story, I’m pretty sure you’d enjoy it. Have a great week, Robbie!

    1. Thanks, Sally. I think you’ll enjoy this one! Have a great Tuesday and thanks for sharing!

        1. Big hugs!

  3. Sounds really good, Olga. It reminded me of the Shipman case here too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I was thinking about that case too (although in this case… well, I can’t tell…). Have a great Tuesday!

  4. Fabulous review, Olga! Not sure I could handle it after experiencing both my grandmother and mother in a nursing home and terrified that’s where I’ll end up!

    1. I know what you mean, Noelle. I’m pretty sure there are no nursing homes quite like this one or even remotely close to it anywhere, but the setting is very creepy. Enjoy your week (and I think we should all make sure we stay together in a cheery home for retired writers…) 🙂

  5. Olga, your remark about “great evil characters” snared me. 😀 The setting also sounds great for the genre, and not run of the mill. Thanks for another mindful review. Have a beautiful week. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, the author has a knack for picking up interesting settings and turning them into characters in their own right. Have a lovely week.

  6. Thank you for the review, Olga. The story got my attention. It sounds both fascinating and spine-chilling. Sometimes we need this kind of book to assure ourselves that it is just fiction 😉

    1. Thanks, Inese. You’re right. It’s a fascinating story and I really enjoy the writer’s style. Enjoy the rest of the week.

      1. Thank you Olga! You too have a lovely week.
