My favorite character may have been Inspector Johnstone. He actually was a minor character in one of the William Hope Hodgson stories. There was not enough to model him extensively so he is partly based on several detectives I know.

DD and I are eagerly awaiting Ch. XX. I print them out, then we fight over them...she's a faster reader, so I give in.

Ch. XIX is my favorite, so far - the cellar scene.

The rabbi's daughter is my favorite character for the moment. Liked the Inspector too. Really want to say it's Carnacki, but for now, I can't. He is much harder character for me to know and warm up to. Don't understand why, perhaps because he does not speak in contractions - and I'm not used to that. I'd rate him a Nyberg 3.

FWIW, I like this much better than the last book I read - The DaVinci Code. Just my 2 cents.

Thank you for the compliment, 42. The cellar was a fun scene to write because it is so macabre. Rats played a role in a key scene in the original Stoker novel and Stephen King paid homage to it in "Salem's Lot." I saw the cellar as a way to tip my hat to both novels.
