Publisher's Summary

Some Places Should Stay Abandoned....
Dr. Siegfried Klein has vanished on a mysterious pilgrimage to an abandoned infirmary in the ghost-town of Moonville. The locals in the surrounding areas are tight-lipped, hostile to outsiders. Local legend has it that the old Sick House is packed with spirits, none of them friendly, and that to set foot in it is to enter Hell itself.
Enter Harlan Ulrich, private investigator and skeptic.
Traveling to the site, the detective begins the long process of separating truth from grisly local myth, and during his investigation stumbles upon certain frightful evidence that tries his nerve. He wants to find the doctor in one piece and weathers the hostilities of the locals even as their stories keep him up at night. But the longer he spends in the ghost town of Moonville, the more he feels the influence of something sinister in the shuttered infirmary.
When finally the truth is revealed and the infirmary's sordid past comes to light, will Ulrich manage to escape with his life?

Grossly Enjoyable Reading

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Sick House. It caught my attention very early into the book, for some reason. I think perhaps I could relate to the P.I.'s character, which seldom happens. The story was not overly gruesome and had the right amount of suspense along with some humor and notable characters. I look forward to reading more books by A. Ibsen.

This guy knows how to paint a picture with words

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sick House to be better than the print version?

I always enjoy listening to a book. Having a narrator who knows how to really keep things creepy makes it more enjoyable to me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sick House?

To me the most memorable moments is when you are first introduced to the sick house. The words were used in such a way as to really put across a feeling of primal fear that you know can only come from a place with the kind of history that the sick house does.

Which character – as performed by Jake Urry – was your favorite?

The main character by far. I don't know why, but Jake can really pull off the "I don't want to deal with people but I have to" character. He really just brought Ulrichs character to life for me.

If you could take any character from The Sick House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Definitely Ulrich, I would only have to get him some coffee and with his sort of personality I wouldn't have to talk too much, because let's face it, I'm probably not smart enough for him to want to talk to me.
