Review of Tormentor by William Meikle

Tormentor - William Meikle

Tormentor is my favorite William Meikle book thus far. This is far from your usual haunted house story, and I am far from a connoisseur of Scottish folklore, but I enjoyed this one quite a lot. The beginning is fairly cliche, to be honest. A guy  (Jim Greenwood) loses his wife and moves to a house on a mostly remote island for a change of scenery. From there the story is anything but mundane. He starts to hear hints of rumors about the house from the moment he meets his far-off neighbors at the local bar, but no one is saying more than that. He starts to notice things that are slightly off within and outside the house, but it could just be his imagination on overdrive in his new solitary existence. As the rumors become louder and an insistent drumming takes up residence in his home--in his head-- it soon becomes clear that something in his new home is requesting--demanding--his attention. he story will not be silenced and it is the story, not the house, that will end up haunting you.
