This book is very different from Catriona Ward's other books, and I'll be honest, it caught me a little off guard to begin with. Both Rawblood and Little Eve are historical novels with a strong Victorian Gothic feel to them. There's something about that historical divide that adds to the otherworldliness of the settings, and somehow that makes it more comfortable as a reader. It's a spooky story, but it happened so long ago it's safe now. That's not the case with The Last House On Needless Street, it's a contemporary setting, and that immediately pushed past the little safety zone I had and started me out off-balance and uncomfortable.
