The Visitor by Christopher Chase Walker

31017679.jpg

Grade B-

A slight, strange, spooky novella about the Devil, a Brighton woman who sees him as a mesmerizing young musician, and a town that sees him as an equally mesmerizing old man and musician, narrated by a cat smarter than anyone else in the book. A quick, mysterious read, though certainly not an essential one, but there is no doubting author Christopher Chase Walker’s lyrical language and his sense of place is so acute that you can almost feel the chilly mist from the fog coming off the English Channel on your skin.
