Peter James was educated at Charterhouse and then at film school. He lived in North America for a number of years, working as a screen writer and film producer (his projects included the award-winning Dead of Night) before returning to England.
I thought this book, Sweet Heart by Peter James started off a bit slow, but after a few pages I really got into the story. Charley feels a sense of Deja Vu about the house, Elmwood Mill, but puts it down to her imagination until they actually move in when strange happenings start to occur. This is the first non crime book of Peter James that I have read and it was very good. A subtle horror/past lives tale with a likeable principal character. It was an Amityville type tale of a house with supernatural issues combined with the more subtle psychological experience of someone reliving a past life. The plot was very convincing and not far fetched but what let it down was the rushed ending, the pace at the end felt like it was out of place with the rest of the tale.
A fitfully chilling variation on James's old-fashioned damsel- in-demonic-distress theme (Dreamer, 1990; Possession, 1988) finds Charley Witney and her lawyer-husband moving into a country house- -which turns out to be haunted by a most malevolent ghost. A final hypnotic session, sufficiently terrifying to strike the hypnotist dead, uncovers the secret behind Charley's woes-one stemming from the homicidal sins of her mother, and powerful enough to free, in an exciting climactic stalk-and-slash, the vengeful spirit behind all this mayhem. Well written, with nice scares and very rich characters, but, here, James is basically repeating himself (and fellow Jameses Henry and . despite the sex-gore overlay.
Except she knows she hasn't. After Charley and her husband Tom move into Elmwood Mill, sinister memories of a previous existence start to haunt he. espite both their attempts to dismiss everything with rational explanations, the feeling turns to certainty as the memories become increasingly vivid and terrifying.
