Publisher's Summary

At Butler House a series of grisly murders over a century have led many to believe it's haunted. To one scientist it's the perfect place for an experiment in fear. Eight people, each chosen because they lived through a terrifying experience, are offered a million dollars to spend one night at Butler House. They can take whatever they want with them - religious items, survival gear, and weapons. All they need to do is last the night.
But there is something evil in this house. Something very evil...and very real. And when the dying starts, it comes with horrifying violence and brutal finality. There are much scarier things than ghosts. Things that will kill you slowly and delight in your screams. Things that won't let you get out alive.

Move Over Jackson and Matheson

The 21st Century Version
Shirley Jackson started it in 1959, Richard Matheson updated it in 1971 and now Jack Kilborn the dark side of J.A. Konrath has brought the haunted house story to the 21st Century. Like most Kilborn stories expect some gore, some sex and a lot of fear. Right from the start, my hair was standing on end due to the opening scene. This is not for the weak. This is scary.

Fear
Stephen King is one my favorite writers, but don't expect anything like that. Even King's dark side, Richard Bachman, never wrote anything this scary. I like King because of his character development. I like Kilborn, because he takes you right to the edge. Konrath is famous for his humor, mixed in with his gore and scary, but until the last hour, Kilborn does not let up on the fear, at times it is very intense. (no comic relief). Fans of his earlier works such as Afraid, Endurance and Trapped will recognize some of the characters, as the survivors are brought back for this. Reading the earlier works are not necessary to enjoy this. If you do enjoy this you will want to go back and read his earlier works. The gore is too much for some of the reviewers but this is not splatter porn or gratuitous. There is mutilation, amputation, burning, torture, etc. You have been warned.

The Sale and Relevance
So glad to see a Kilborn book on sale. Browse Fiction/Horror and out of the top 20 books, eleven are King books, out of the top 50, twenty five are King books. Once again I love Stephen King, but he is not the only one who writes horror. Another reason for Horror to be it's only category, with sub cats, so others will notice the other writers.

Terrifying!!!

What did you like most about Haunted House?

Relentlessly scary and didn't let ya go for one minute!!!

What other book might you compare Haunted House to, and why?

Incomparable for all the right reasons!

What about Rob Shapiro’s performance did you like?

His voice is perfect for the story!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several, when the individual characters REALISE they are survivors and can beat the evil that lies within the house!! When Sarah and Frank get together at the end. :)

Any additional comments?

A great horror would recommend to any of your customers interested in the horror genre.
