Publisher's Summary

Dean and Jess knew the house had a tragic past but it did not stop them from making the move with their young daughters. It was supposed to be a new - and bigger - home with which they could continue to build upon their already established happy memories but as the house's past begins to haunt them they realize it is not the dream they first hoped it to be.
From Matt Shaw (author of The Cabin, Happy Ever After and Sick B*stards) comes a new novella; a tale of psychological horror and slow-building tension leading to an unforgettable climax.

I guess that the end of this story is left up to each individual reader because there certainly wasn't one in the final chapter!

- PJPackwood "I really enjoy a good 'Mystery/Thriller' but the narrator can cause me, at times, to not listen to what might have been a really good story."

Not good...

First off, the narrarator did this thing with his voice where he would drop it down unnaturally low; it was very annoying. I think I could have dealt with it if it had been the book's only issue.
The story itself started off okay and held my attention well for a while. It wasn't one that was difficult to walk away from, but I did care about the characters and wnated to know what was going on with them. And then, the story shifted. It went from being a supernatural thriller to one that should be filed away in the erotica section. In the beginning, the couple in the story was intimate, but by the end of the book, everyone was and in a more graphic manner than they were in the beginning. It was like he couldn't figure out what to do with these characters, so he would fill the pages with sex and hope for the best. The actual story line at the end of the book was weak and was poorly covered by the author's attempt at erotica. It was not scary and was actually pretty lame.
