The Review: David Haynes returns with another slice of ghostly perfection. The Journal of Reginald Perigar is written convincingly and authentically and wouldn’t look out of place alongside Dickens’ ghost stories.
I don’t usually guess where the plot is going in Haynes’ books and it’s with some smugness I declare that I predicted the outcome ahead of time but it was no less delicious when it came.
This is a perfectly-formed story with an ending that is clever and fittingly spooky. Short enough to devour in one session, it nevertheless packs the punch I have come to expect from this author’s work.
The Verdict: Another must-read.
