Very indirect plot spoilers here. This is not-quite-James. It's slow to get started - not slow the way his other novels are slow, but sloooooooooow - with long descriptions of peoples' appearances that are neither interesting nor insightful etc etc... Chapter III through the first half of XI is great, but someone has seemingly replaced a Jamesian ending with one straight out of a gothic horror novel. The final few chapters are somehow both completely superfluous (page after page of 'the alps stood out against the sun-lit sky like lowering monsters') and insufficient (the characters sit around... and somehow, someway, one of them decides that 'life is no longer worth living'. ) They aren't direct quotes, James is too good a writer for that, but the sentiment is about right. That said, James got it right with his very next novel, and it stayed right more or less to the end of his life, and you get hints of that here. But only recommended for people who care about getting the early hints; otherwise, start with The American.
