I am getting to the point where I like to read a good short story after I have read a 500 page book So the more my friends talked about this book the more I wanted to read it. As with all short stories you can't give away to much of the plot or you give away the whole story for the next person. If you like a good psychological horror/ mystery without all the blood and guts, old five story brownstone houses and a family and their servants who have some secrets to hide. Then you will like this book. The only problem that I had with it was it was over to soon.
