So begins the tale of the Sunshire Chateau and its occasional but coveted tour of the many exotic rooms and collectibles...
... The very knowledgeable but no-nonsense tour guide will give the tourists a pair of recently laundered slippers (no street shoes allowed)...
... and lead the group of 8 people on a tour of the different rooms: from the Reception Hall, upstairs to the Blue Room, Library, Atrium, and finally...
The Map Room...
One can almost hear the house say: Feed me... and the chateau has a big appetite...
When one door closes, another door opens but what happens if one loses one's way between doors? Confusion?...
... Without a clear path do those souls just wander?... wander places like the rooms of the Sunshire Chateau?...
... mere shadows of people long-gone... like woodsmoke in the air...
I liked this version of a haunted house novel. It reminded me somewhat of SLADE HOUSE by David Mitchell. It became a little slow-moving about midway through but the ending evoked Shirley Jackson's THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE.
It starts off rather hilariously with a group of people waiting to get a tour of a grand old house. The Tour Guide does not like to be trifled with and it shows immediately. I found his attitude perversely entertaining.
It's also obvious from the very beginning that something isn't right in this house. The author very artfully drops clues to let us in on the mystery. It's little things like the Tour Guide being late to open the doors even when he thinks he's early; the gardener just sort of showing up and disappearing without anyone really noticing how he arrived or where he went; the similarities between the Tour Guide and the man in the painting.
This last one was really tricky because it gets you thinking one way, but you're wrong. That's what I love about a good mystery is when I find out I'm wrong when I was so certain. A good writer knows to throw you a curve ball every once in a while just so they can twist everything around in the end. It keeps you guessing and it's fun.
This is a horror story but it mixes a good mystery in and a love story too. The mystery is what kept me reading until 2 a.m. when I knew I should go to sleep and finish the next night. I just couldn't stop. The more I read, the deeper the plot thickened and the more I thought, "Wait! What? WHAT?" And the more I realized I was wrong about my initial assumptions, the more I had to read. It's just that good.
