Imogen Russell Williams, The Metro, 31st October 2012 (p.41)
If only a brick-thick Halloween read will satisfy, Neil Spring’s debut Ghost Hunters is a substantial fictional sweetmeat with a kernel of truth. Round the real history of Borley Rectory, ‘the most haunted house in England’, and the chequered life of paranormal researcher Harry Price,
Spring weaves a dark web of romance, deceit and a lingering curse. In 1926, Sarah Grey becomes Harry Price’s secretary. She’s drawn to his mercurial, high-handed personality and his work in discrediting high-profile mediums. But when they’re invited to investigate the happenings at the Rectory, Sarah and Harry fall foul of Borley’s Dark Woman…
Close the curtains, pull up a chair, open a book – and prepare to be pleasantly scared.
