James Herbert was one of Britain’s greatest popular novelists and our #1 best-selling writer of chiller fiction. Widely imitated and hugely influential, he wrote 23 novels which have collectively sold over 54 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages. Born in London in the forties, James Herbert was art director of an advertising agency before turning to writing fiction in 1975.
His first novel, The Rats, was an instant bestseller and is now recognised as a classic of popular contemporary fiction. Herbert went on to publish a new top ten best-seller every year until 1988. He wrote six more bestselling novels in the 1990s and three more since: Once, Nobody True and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Herbert died in March 2013 at the age of 69.
“There are few things I would like to do less than lie under a cloudy night sky while someone read aloud the more vivid passages of Moon. In the thriller genre, do recommendations come any higher?” (Andrew Postman, The New York Times Book Review)
“Herbert goes out in a blaze of glory” ( Daily Mail)

The only problem with this book is that it is too short!
Apart from that its a very clever little story and it does in fact trick you all the way, when it ended I thought oh my god I did not expect that!
After listening to ash I wanted more and got it in this book David Ash at his best goes to investigate another haunting in a remote mansion its a creepy little horror story and not what you think!

A pretty good read.
Ok so I have just finished the classic book, The Rats also by James Herbert and this does not come close. if you haven't read it yet then buy that one instead, This doesn't mean this is a bad book its not. It's just The Rats is a true classic, and this while being an excellent book is no classic. That being said I did enjoy this book and will be buying the sequel.
The narrator Steven Pacey was extent and the quality of the recording were very good.
