Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

A re-read for the Psych square

Silence for the Dead - Simone St. James

Normally the Psyche square would be an automatic transfiguration spell usage, because I categorically do not like psychological thrillers/horror, but I had this Simone St. James book on my shelves because I love her ghost stories, and it so happens it takes place in a remote, isolated mental hospital for WWI veterans suffering shell-shock.  I read it back in 2016 and it was overdue for a re-read.

 

I stand by my original review (4 stars) - this one is almost less a ghost story than a horror story.  High creep factor, and an ending that isn't entirely wrapped up in a bow.
