It is no exaggeration to say that this is a fantastic tale of mystery and intrigue, splendidly written and compiled as would be expected from an author of Mr. Stuart’s considerable talent. Centred around a young teenage boy’s explorations into the hauntings surrounding an old derelict Well upon which he stumbles whilst out wandering in what was once a leper field, with the assistance of his father (an Archaeological Historian) the protagonist is compelled by supernatural influences to set about solving the secrets it harbours.
As incidents from the past slowly begin to unfold, the senses are heightened and the reader cannot help but get caught up in the atmosphere which the author has so cleverly contrived to reach out in a hauntingly subtle way, and which encompasses his audience from the very first pages to the very last.
The spirit of Saint Ignatia - once a wandering Christian Monk - is the key to the plot, and for a spooky page-turning and exceedingly absorbing read this tale would be hard to top.
