Don't let the decidedly not-so-lurid title fool you, this is an exceedingly thrilling Gothic novel with all the characteristic tropes of the genre used masterfully, along with well-developed characters (both the heroes as well as the villains), changes in point of view that are not the least bit distracting, and great storytelling in general.
