Publisher's Summary

The Fischer House was the scene of a vicious crime in the 1920's-a crime which still resonates as the century turns. At its heart was a beautiful, enigmatic woman called Pandora Gibson-Hoare, a photographer of genius whose only legacy is a handful of photographs and the clues to a mystery. Paul Seaton was lured to the house 10 years ago and escaped, a damaged man. Now three students will die unless he dares to go back. But this time he has ex-soldier Nick Mason at his side, and maybe Mason's military skills and visceral courage will be enough.

Not a bad book

I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I liked some of the story set in the past, and generally liked the overall plot. However, there were parts that didn't really need to be in there and sometimes it felt like parts kept on going for way too long. The ending was...interesting. It was very unexpected and felt like the author just wanted to wrap things up in a hurry. But it did make you think, and correlated with some of the events that happened in the story's past. I found myself thinking about the book the next day, and linking up the ending with what had happened previously. In my mind the stories that you think of after you have read it are the good ones. I recommend The Colony by the same author, which is very good, and am looking forward to checking out more by Cottam.

A good solid scary story

Would you consider the audio edition of The House of Lost Souls to be better than the print version?

A thriller which is based on the theme of devil possession but will also appeal to a reader who is not religious. In fact, the protagonist himself is presented as an atheist who struggles to reconcile his world view with the terrible events that keep hinting at church teachings. This storyline, however, is more subtle and not so in-you-face as in Cottam's other book, and not irritating at all. The novel is dynamic, expertly interweaves the past and the present, and keeps one on the edge of his chair. The characters are likeable enough, but not so very much that you would get depressed for days when they die :) The narrator does a really good job, too. On the whole, I recommend it to those who like fairly easy reading, but good quality and with a thrill
