“Twins Elspeth and Edie were very close until an incident regarding Edies marriage to Jack. Twenty years later Elspeth has died of cancer and, strangely, has willed her London estate to Edies twin daughters, Julia and Valentina. The young twins who live in Chicago must live in the London flat for one year before it becomes theirs and must not allow their parents to enter it. Others living in the building are Robert, Elspeths lover, and Martin and Marijke. Martin suffers from compulsive obsessive disorder and hasn’t left the apartment in years. Also playing a major role in the story is Highgate Cemetery which borders on the property. Ghosts and odd happenings abound and, while the book is well written, the ending is unsatisfying.
