Help me with a horror novel title.

What's-the-title-of-this-book-Filter: I read a review of this novel but can't remember the title or the author.

Here's what I - vaguely - remember: a female author released a novel within the last 2 (3?) years, perhaps even more recently. It's a kind of horror novel, I believe, but the author is known for more non-genre fiction. It has something to do with a haunted house or castle, perhaps in England or elsewhere in Europe; I think the book cover had a photo of a gothic-looking castle. It had a really positive review in a major newspaper (NYT?) She's British or American. Again, I think. Ring a bell with anyone?

On preview, now that I think of it, the author could be a man. Just to make things more difficult.

Not an author of any previous books, but you you're not thinking of Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian...?

Best answer: Is it The Keep by Jennifer Egan?
