Wild Fell: A Ghost Story

The crumbling summerhouse called Wild Fell, soaring above the desolate shores of Blackmore Island, has weathered the violence of the seasons for more than a century. Built for his family by a 19th-century politician of impeccable rectitude, the house has kept its terrible secrets and its darkness sealed within its walls. 

Michael Rowe is an award-winning journalist and essayist, and the author of several books, including the novel Enter, Night declared by to be the #1 vampire novel of 2011.
