Review: THE DOWLING HOUSE by A. Drew
For me the strength of this supernatural horror lay in the characters as much as in the haunting, which is implacable and quite scary. The characters, of two different eras, are well-developed and the authors do well at drawing out the hidden issues and revealing them transposed against the era's cultural mores.
The earlier period (1954) reminded me (in characters and plotting and setting) of the Gothic suspense I devoured as a child antiquities ago.
