Harry Steen, a businessman travelling in Mexico, ducks into an old bookstore to escape a frightening deluge. Inside, he makes a serendipitous discovery: a mid-19th-century account of a sinister storm cloud that plagued an isolated Scottish village and caused many gruesome and unexplainable deaths. Harry knows the village well. It was there that he met the woman whose love and betrayal have haunted him every day since. Presented with this astonishing record, Harry resolves to seek out the ghosts of his past.

I haven't finished it yet... can't put it down. Sending shivers up my spine. This is not my usual genre and I tend to stop when the going gets weird, but this is one exception. I can't wait to see how it all ends. I will let you know if it's worth it.

Okay... finished. This is one memorable read. Highly recommended for those who crave original literature.
