Midnight is a lonely place

Found this story very boring, it went on and on and on in the same vein, could not listen to the second half, have better things to do with 7 hours of my life. Maybe a different narrator would make all the difference !

and scary place!

Now just the front cover of this made me think, "Granny book, skip it!" but it's not, it's really good!

The author is able to keep the tension on high alert throughout, and seeing as it's a fully unabridged version, that's pretty impressive to me! A biographer splits up from her partner and moves to a remote cottage to get on with her new Byron script. The teenager daughter of the family up the road starts a dig at the beach, unearthing roman artifacts. Could these finds explain the changes in behaviour of the girl, or is there some sort of haunting going on?
