Peril the First - Book 3

Book three for me is "The Bone Key" by Sarah Monette. This was a fun book - a collection of ten stories about creepy things that occur around or to Kyle Murchison Booth. The writing is kind of old-fashioned and British, and fits well with the setting. Kyle is a museum archivist, has prematurely white hair, is very shy and introverted and seems to always be involved in necromantic adventures. He brings the dead wife of a colleague back to life, finds a skeleton buried in the walls of the museum basement, and other strange adventures. It was a perfect book for Perilous Reading!! I recommend it to everyone who is participating in the R.I.P. Challenge!!

I am going to look for 'The Becoming'. Thanks for the tip. Have you read 'The Thirteenth Tale' by Diane Setterfield? Great Book but probably not spooky enuff for the RIP challenge. But 'The Woman in Black' by Susan Hill would work well.
