Publisher's Summary

Felix Baxter, entrepreneur extraordinaire, is going to rehabilitate New Hope Island. Rich and manipulative, he wants to convert it into a glamorous getaway destination - The New Hope Experience. But will the restless ghosts of Seamus Ballantyne's 1825 colony allow the project to go to plan?

Helena Davenport has an opportunity that could be pivotal in her career as an architect - Felix Baxter has commissioned her to oversee his New Hope vision. But nothing is as it seems in this mysterious part of the Scottish Hebrides. Helena's site manager is the first to go missing with one single eerie scream.

Accompanied by the survivors of the last group to visit New Hope, Ruthie Gillespie must travel back to the island one final time to end this ordeal not only for those on the island but for themselves, too.... But is New Hope Island ever worth returning to? And will this concluding trip end a curse that has afflicted all who have had the misfortune to visit it for nearly two centuries?

Another Great Ghost Story from Cottam

Cottam has done it again. Another great New Hope Island ghost story in a great series of the supernatural. With narration by David Rintoul, there should be no question for fans of great modern horror, about adding this selection to your library.
Cottam is one of my favorite writers of contemporary horror fiction. I own all of his titles available through Audible and have never been disappointed. There seems to be few good supernatural audio novels to choose from that don't include a magically or psychically gifted hero to take on whatever evil foes that exist. Truly good horror stories in the vein of the classics are hard to come by.
Cottam and Rintoul have made one of best writer/narrator teams for a while now, and should not be overlooked. Get this book and also check out the rest of their works!

3rd time unlucky...

Final book in the trilogy and the shark was well and truly jumped. Still loads of exposition, unnatural dialogue etc as well as dubious - "let's split up!" decisions by characters who should know better.

The basic outline was a bit shaky - a hotel on an island which has that many deaths associated with it seems a stretch.

The worst parts were the dialogues with the various supernatural creatures throughout the book which were laughably bad.

All in all a "readable" trilogy which would be much improved by trimming a lot of the dialogue and keeping the monsters a bit more hidden.

A very good read

FG Cottam never disappoints. David Ritoul is an excellent narrator and perfect for this kind of story.
