I'm not spoiling anything by saying that the main idea of this ghost story centers around the possibility that Thoreau could've had a mistress at Walden Pond, covered up her suicide (or murder) and buried her in an unmarked grave. Wow. Throw in an evil ghost and you've got yourself a great, fast-paced horror novel. I enjoyed it.

I loved it. It was the kind of creepy that I love. Defenitely will be looking for more from Chesterton.

Really liked the book but the ending was disappointing.
