Editorial Reviews

Teenager Robin needs money for a trip to Florida and accepts a job at a manor house library, working for the wealthy and eccentric Swanson family. As Robin organizes the books belonging to a woman named Lilith, who died in a gruesome suicide, things become complicated when she falls for Parker Swanson, heir to the family fortune. However, the discovery of a clump of bloody hair makes Robin realize that things are not what they seem. Narrator Tara Sands gives a brisk, commanding performance that authentically evokes the cadence and attitude of a teenager, and her lithe voice teases listeners, luring them deeper into the twists and horror of this story.

Publisher's Summary

A job in a manor-house library gives Robin more than she bargained for. All Robin wants is a part-time job. A friend has invited her on a Florida vacation that promises to be the trip of a lifetime, and Robin needs money for airfare. The ad on the school bulletin board is irresistible: “Get Rich Quick,” it promises, and Robin can’t say no.
Her new employer is the patriarch of the Swanson family, a wealthy bunch of weirdos who recently moved into Manorwood, a stately mansion that has been empty for as long as Robin can remember. Now its libraries are full of books that Robin must organize - books that belonged to a woman named Lilith who died in a gruesome suicide. Robin doesn’t think she can trust the Swansons, including Parker Swanson, heir to the family fortune and most popular boy in school.
And when Robin finds a clump of bloody hair in the backyard, she begins to fear that the Swansons’ evil past is not past at all.

The author of this book seems like a high school kid. The story line was OK BUT we know absolutely nothing about any characters from this book. A back story was needed for this!
