Some secrets should stay buried....
College student Drew Brady never wanted the power to spy on his friends. But late one night, he finds a box of old Polaroids buried under his house that can change to show him whatever he desires, and Drew finds himself with the power to watch the people around him without them ever knowing.
Yet as Drew falls deeper into the rabbit hole of jealousy and despair, he begins having strange visions of the students who lived at the house 20 years ago and the gruesome fates they met after moving out. He finds evidence of a stalker who may be living on the property. The line between reality and nightmare blurs. Drew realizes there is something under the house that is manipulating him through the pictures, an eldritch, not-quite-dead thing that will drive him to do unspeakable evil if he doesn't look away....

Lurk keeps you on your toes!
Yes! The novel is pretty thought-provoking. You don't know whether to trust the narrator, if what he is saying is true/real. Listening to the book again would probably uncover some new nuances I may not have noticed before!
Definitely. You see Drew descend into his own mind, and are on the whole journey with him. Adam Vine very vividly depicts the kind of turmoil Drew goes through, and you just never know what is going to happen next!
Drew, probably. There was not too too much distinction between characters, especially the female ones. Kevin Meyer captured Drew's emotions pretty well, though.
Drew coming full circle at the end really shocked me! It was an unexpected surprise that really added to the creep factor. It also left me with so many questions, in a good way! By the end, you are not sure if you can even trust anything Drew says, which makes it all way creepier.
