Fear is a place.
When struggling concert pianist Emil inherits a house from his late uncle, he thinks all of his problems are solved. Absconding to the mysterious Weatherby House in the suburbs of Portland where his famous uncle composed many classical masterpieces, Emil finds the place completely empty, save for one thing: his uncle's grand piano.
But Weatherby House is not the ideal getaway it appears at first glance. It has a dark past and is shunned by the locals. As the days pass, strange things occur on the property, leaving Emil to wonder if he isn't losing his mind.
Unplaceable footsteps resound in the upstairs; dark figures peer into the windows at night despite the empty acreage that surrounds the old house, and that blasted piano can't seem to keep quiet, loosing music at turns beautiful and terrifying even as no one sits before it.
In time, Emil discovers that there's something else living in Weatherby House.
And it refuses to let him leave.

A great scary ghost story!
Stirrings in the Black House by Ambrose Ibsen is a pretty good scary story. Emil inherits a house from an uncle that never really seemed to care for him. Shocked but in need of a place and down on his luck, he happy with his luck. He moves in and soon finds out that this house has a history, a bad history. He also finds out why his uncle gave him the house. The book started out a little slow but soon it made up for it and ended with an exciting bang! Great ghost story! I was requested an audio version and the review is voluntary.
