James Buchan’s most recent main protagonist isn’t the most likeable of chaps

James Buchan’s most recent main protagonist isn’t the most likeable of chaps. Jim Smith – an emotionally closed, ex-London business entrepreneur with a love of complete solitude – moves to the Brackshire countryside, taking early retirement from the world of software, only to be greeted by a frosty reception from his hyper-critical, upper class neighbours and a haunted new home. Indeed not one of the characters in this award-winning author’s third work ever really charms us, and instead it is left to the poetic prose and intense love story running beneath to captivate the reader

The mystery at the novel's centre, of vanished 60s icon Jean Lampard, remains foggy and the mechanics of the narrative feel forced and awkward. There are some atmospheric passages, but few real chills.

Wealthy ex-city businessman Jim Smith moves into Paradise Farm, seemingly to begin a new life. Yet his time there is far from idyllic, as ghosts of the past and the demons of his present threaten to engulf him. This supernatural love story gripped me tightly from the start and held me firmly until the end, when the mystery finally begins to unravel. Find similar books Profile. Jim's world, so carefully rebuilt on its new foundation of happiness, a second time disintegrated.
