Marion Zetland lives with her domineering older brother, John in a decaying Georgian townhouse on the edge of a northern seaside resort. A timid spinster in her fifties who still sleeps with teddy bears, Marion does her best to shut out the shocking secret that John keeps in the cellar.
Until, suddenly, John has a heart attack and Marion is forced to go down to the cellar herself and face the gruesome truth that her brother has kept hidden.
As questions are asked and secrets unravel, maybe John isn’t the only one with a dark side.
The blurb sounded good. The book itself not so much.
It’s dark and while the title is The Visitors, most of the book is just Marion talking to herself and wondering what her brother does in the cellar.
It was one of those books I felt could have been a lot shorter. As it was I didn’t care about a single one of them, including the visitors.
There were no thrills, no spine tingling moments. From the beginning we know exactly
what he is doing in the basement and the ending was less than satisfying.
