    Gil Brewer, writing as Elaine Evans, does gothic writing. The way this starts makes absolutely no sense and you have to suspend all disbelief to go along with how Caroline ends up at Shadowland. Makes it hard to like and identify with her. Brewer delivers on atmosphere and paranoia, along with some fast-paced action scenes, usually with Caroline running, but that is all the good I can say.

    Hopelessly ridiculous. I might have been willing to give this book 3 stars if it hadn't been so stupid, but it was just too stupid to rate higher than 2 stars. Caroline is a nurse that is summoned by Baxter Marr's chauffer one day. Caroline has no clue who Baxter is, but hops into his car anyway. Eventually Baxter tells her that he wants her to come live at his home, a house called Shadowland. He wants her to work on his novel with him. He claims he has cleared it with her boss whom is an old fri Hopelessly ridiculous. I might have been willing to give this book 3 stars if it hadn't been so stupid, but it was just too stupid to rate higher than 2 stars. Caroline is a nurse that is summoned by Baxter Marr's chauffer one day. Caroline has no clue who Baxter is, but hops into his car anyway. Eventually Baxter tells her that he wants her to come live at his home, a house called Shadowland. He wants her to work on his novel with him. He claims he has cleared it with her boss whom is an old friend of his. Caroline thinks highly of her boss, so upon hearing that he has given his approval, she takes the offer. What a ridiculous fool Caroline is. Who would take a job from a stranger without even checking anything out? It's hard to believe she was smart enough to be a nurse. Caroline is thoroughly pleased with her decision. She's always wanted to see inside Shadowland and she's been aching for an adventure. Right away things seem strange in the house, Baxter's sister is nasty to Caroline and warns her to go away. Many more things happen that any normal person would take as a sign to hit the road, but not Caroline. The more Baxter's sister and the maid warn her to leave, the more she wants to stay. She won't let them run her away from her adventure. The stupidity continues as Caroline pokes her big nose into everything, intent on finding out the secrets of Shadowland house. She insists on going into rooms that many warn her to stay out of, she refuses to heed any warnings, even though she herself admits something is very wrong and she feels afraid. She catches Baxter in her room twice while she was sleeping, he was mumbling to himself like a madman, but she never lets on that she saw him. Even after that she wouldn't make a single attempt to leave. In the end, I was disappointed because the fool managed to make it out alive. I wanted her to die a much deserved slow and painful death. Obviously she wasn't too concerned about waking up dead one morning, so neither was I.
