About the book
Martin Stride is a retired rock star, enjoying the quiet life with his young family on their beautiful estate. On the edge of his grounds lies a derelict Edwardian railway station waiting room once used to transport troops in The Great War. Silent for many years, it has become a playground for Martin's children but now they won't go near it.

Strange occurrences in the waiting room lead Martin to seek the help of TV's favourite ghost-hunter Julian Creed. But Creed's psychic ability is a fabrication to gain viewers. He doesn't believe in the paranormal. Until he spends a night in The Waiting Room.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
Full of interest and not a little tension . . . (Cottam) knows a lot more about good writing than his supposedly more upmarket competitors'
A terrifying encounter with manifest evil . . . chilling novel . . . His adrenaline-charged prose is drawn tight with suspense
Beautifully written and highly engaging'
F.G. Cottam's complex, tautly atmospheric thriller delivers plenty of chills . . . the perfect dark winter night yarn'
F.G. Cottam has crafted a superb and tautly told tale . . . A perfect ghost story
A treasure trove of dark dreams and sinister socery.'
The writing is rich and vivid and every page is a treat for the imagination.'
Another spine-chilling treat from F G Cottam . . . this book is so well written, and with such rich vocabulary, that it transports you to the place it is talking about and you get the sensation that you are watching the action with your own eyes . . . I can't recommend it to you highly enough
Human passions are always at the root of Cottam's hauntings, and his skill is to tease out a complex tapestry of explanation, somethings stretching over decades.
