For 400 years, the curfew bell has tolled nightly from the church tower of the small country town, Crybbe's only defence against the evil rising unbidden in its haunted streets. Radio reporter Fay Morrison came to Crybbe because she had no choice. Millionaire music tycoon Max Goff came because there was nothing left to conquer, except the power of the spirit.

The horror in this story was kind of subtle and I thought well done. Not overly gory (altho I can appreciate a nice gory book!), but more thoughtful, than outright scary. I thought the characters were pretty good, if a little shallow, but overall a good read
Best - story line
Least - I wanted to get to know some of the characters in more depth.
I thought that was the only way it could have ended.
The local accents used - not knowing whether they are truly on spot or not, it still added to my listening experience.
Avoid New Age Anything! :)
