Seance of the Souls by David Haynes

This is the next instalment in David Haynes' "macabre" collection.  And what an instalment it is too.

Again, I was drawing into this miserable London from the first chapter, I could feel my pores clogging up with smog as I read.  This story has hideous deaths, intrigue, horrors and evil.  Yet, because it is set in Victorian times and reads as if it was written then, it's not an 18 rated book. The horrors are chilling and creepy, but certainly not like modern day "snuff" stuff.

This is certainly an enjoyable read - the story as well as the writing.
