The White Devil: A Ghost Story
Andrew immediately witnesses a murder and then he falls in with the only girl on the campus. Trouble follows Andrew like a shadow and he quickly becomes entangled in a ghostly mystery. He is tormented by visions of the ghost of Harrow School and he can't escape the mystery surrounding the ghost that haunts him. Andrew is the spitting image of Byron and his dark story and Byron's mirror each other as the ghost story around Andrew slowly unfolds.
As a ghost story, The White Devil is beautifully written and very well done. It isn't a horror story and it certainly won't keep you up at night, but the mysterious ghosts of Harrow School will keep you turning the pages, wondering what is next. This is wonderful novel for any connoisseur of good ghost stories and dark Gothic mysteries that keep you wondering what is lurking around the next corner.
