    • Janet Caird isn't well known in the 1960s/70s gothic novel universe, and in my opinion, two of her other books (In a Glass Darkly and Perturbing Spirit) are pretty dreadful. However, this offering more then makes up for any problems the other two had, and is probably one of my favorite gothics ever.Within the first 5 pages, The Shrouded Way takes the reader on a harrowing ride along the misty Scottish Highland mountain passes, and into murder. Elizabeth Cranston has left her Peace-Corp-like volu [...]


    • For me, this book has it all. Its based in Scotland (which I loooove) so you have the atmosphere. Think fog and craggy seaside cliffs, a small village where everyone knows everything about everyone and everything, ha! And throw in an old churchyard, a crazy old woman, itinerant gypsies, lost treasure and sunken shipsoh and don't forget the old house, a murder or two, kidnapping, cave passages and old wellsyou would THINK that it would all be just TOO MUCH going on but it's not. Somehow, the auth [...]


    • Five stars easy!Now, how can I review this without giving it all away?Think Nancy Drew for adults. What can be a better place for a holiday than a visit to her auntie in a remote, lazy town? Elizabeth, is all set for a cozy vacation, until she is just pulling into the outskirts of the village and a deep fog sets in. Stopping by the road side she finds a body of a man with red hair… dead. Soon she's on the run from a murderer, who's somewhere hidden in the fog, and the worst of it is, it could [...]


    • I swithered between three and four stars for this one - and decided to be generous. I enjoyed the beginning and the end but for me it dragged a wee bit in the middle. If you enjoy a Scottish setting and an adventure/mystery then you'll probably like this one.


    • I really wanted to like this since it seemed to be exactly my type of book, but honestly I can't give it more than three stars. The beginning is very suspenseful and sucks you right in, the plot moves at a fast pace and is relatively unpredictable (for this type of book). The Scottish landscape adds an atmospheric backdrop. But I think the author tried to put too much into this small volume, and to me it read more like a summary than a fully fleshed out story. Also I had a hard time keeping trac [...]


    • Points for well done suspense, but the body count ended up being too high for me. I prefer stories with villains whose bark is worse than their bite, so this story felt pretty bleak to me.
