About the Author:

James Herbert was not just Britain's number one bestselling writer of chiller fiction, a position he held ever since publication of his first novel, but was also one of our greatest popular novelists. Widely imitated and hugely influential, his twenty-three novels have sold more than fifty-four million copies worldwide, and have been translated into over thirty languages, including Russian and Chinese. In 2010, he was made the Grand Master of Horror by the World Horror Convention and was also awarded an OBE by the Queen for services to literature. His final novel was Ash. James Herbert died in March 2013.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Before you horror-flick fans get too excited, no, this is not a book about Ash, Bruce Campbell’s iconic cult hero from the Evil Dead movies. It is, however, a big, thrilling, pull-all-the-stops novel featuring David Ash, the skeptical psychic investigator who was introduced in Haunted (1988) and made his second appearance in The Ghosts of Sleath (1994). It’s been awhile since fans have seen Ash, but they’ll be pleased to note that he’s lost none of his straight-shooting attitude and keen ability to distinguish between fear and paranoia and genuine otherworldly goings-on. The book, which finds Ash hired by a secretive organization to investigate the suspected haunting of a sanatorium with some very special residents, begins with a famous celebrity death (the celebrity isn’t named, but the date is the giveaway) and ends with a certain royal personage uttering some very uncharacteristically coarse words. In between, there are plenty of surprises, including the solution to at least one famously unsolved disappearance that has haunted the world since the mid-1970s. Longer than both the earlier Ash novels combined, the book justifies its page count by offering a gripping mixture of paranormal and traditional thriller elements. Imagine Herbert channeling Dan Brown and you’ll have some idea of what he’s up to here. --David Pitt
