[quote=""Madeleine""]Hiding from the Light is another good one - witches as well as ghosts ;) [/quote] My library has that on CD and I put a hold on it.

[quote=""Misfit""]And I'll bet there's no mention of it on the news :( I loathed Pillars.

[quote=""Madeleine""]Ooh I enjoyed that one, it was the first book of hers I ever read, quite spooky. House of Echoes is also a good one in the same way, if you haven't read it.[/quote]

I also got that one from the library-so next on my list!
