This belongs to the Man With The Red Hair Walpole, and is again a story of a sadist, in this instance a grandfather with an overweening ego and a thirst for a gratification of his sense of power. The boy’s mother, his aunt, the boy himself are prey to his madness, and the story gathers momentum until they are forced to escape from the setting which gives him his power. It’s a skilful build-up of atmosphere and suspense.—Kirkus Review. [Suggest a different description.]

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (March 13, 1884 - June 1, 1941) was a British Novelist during the first half of the Twentieth Century. He was one of the most popular authors of his times, until his literary reputation was destroyed by Somerset Maugham.
His most famous novel is perhaps Rogue Herries, the first of four books in his Herries Chronicles series. He wrote thirty-six novels, and five volumes of short stories.
