Publisher's Summary

Their new home is out to get them
Welcome to Angel Hill, Missouri, a town that shot blood from the ground at its own groundbreaking. There are only two roads in or out of town, and everything within those borders is subject to the whims of reality. Those who grew up here are immune to the town's peculiarities. But Jack and Liz have just moved here, and for their young son, Joey, it's almost like coming home again. As the Kitches start settling into their new home, a large abandoned house in need of a lot of TLC, Angel Hill welcomes them the only way it knows how. Footsteps in the middle of the night. Voices on the phone. Their big empty house wasn't so empty after all. There's a presence, and it's growing stronger. And angrier.
Does madness live on after death?
A hulking figure stalks the halls while childlike voices whisper in mourning. And there's something unexplainable happening to Joey. His hair is shorter now, and his eyes - they didn't used to be that color, did they? And that birthmark on his neck looks more like a scar every day. Jack doesn't want to believe his own eyes, but for Liz the threat is all too real, and it's closing in. From the invisible shapes under the sheets, the eyes she feels on her constantly, and the banging coming from the third floor - is that something trying to get in? Or something wanting out? Welcome to Angel Hill.

Best? Every four minutes people awoke from adult naps having vague nightmares about ghosts. Worst? So much peeing.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Larger bladders for protagonists. Less weird lisping from narrator when doing #ladyvoices

What three words best describe Gary Tiedemann’s performance?

THhhhhhhhibilenthe! BABY VOICE!

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for a book about a family that naps and pees just allllll the time and is ready for ghosts to take advantage of their hypersomnia and lack of foresight at bed time, this is the book for you.

Not Again!

It's not that this was a terrible story, it just wasn't a very good one and certainly not a particularly fresh or well-told one.

I can see that other people loved it, but I felt it dragged, pace-wise. And if I read another horror story where the conflict centers around a couple where the husband keeps flatly denying there is anything supernatural going on, for 5 hours, I'm going to scream.

That particular plot device has worn very thin with me.
