It started with a documentary. The beautiful Alyssa Bradford approaches Eric Shaw to unearth the life story of her father-in-law, Campbell Bradford, a 95-year-old billionaire whose childhood is wrapped in mystery. Eric grabs the job, even though the only clues to Bradford's past are his hometown and an antique water bottle he's kept his entire life.
In Bradford's hometown, Eric discovers an extraordinary past - a glorious domed hotel where movie stars, presidents, athletes, and mobsters once intermingled. Long derelict, the hotel has just been restored to its former grandeur.
But something else has been restored, too - a long-forgotten evil that will stop at nothing to settle a decades-old score. And with every move, Eric inches closer to the center of the building storm.

This Booktrack edition not for me
For me, this production of Koryta's book distracts from the writing and narration rather than enhancing it. Sometimes you just don't know about the booktrack edition before ordering. The music and screeching sound effects (think trains, planes and automobiles) throughout the 9 chapters I listened to didn't work. One chapter was filled with crickets chirping! Additionally, the dialogue is less than I expect from this author.
I'm returning the book because I can't get into the story. Koryta always tells a great one but I have to go Kindle on this one.

Totally Different Genre But A Good Listen
I have listened to a number of this author’s other books and enjoyed them all. Bought this without realizing that this was very different. Wasn’t sure it would be for me, but I enjoyed it.
And the violin tune was haunting. Not going to change my genre preferences but a good listen nonetheless.
