Whispers in the Dark

Whispers in the Dark (1992) is the second of Jonathan Aycliffe's supernatural thrillers.  It is basically a memoir of the girlhood of Charlotte Metcalf, written in her old age, and telling of the awful events of her childhood, including the supernatural curse on her family based around the hall of her cousins, Antonia and Anthony Ayrton. It is very smoothly written, engaging and readable, even if one wishes for something more substantial. Yet it remains at best only a well-done commercial thriller.
