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.

great read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Even though the writer seemed to jump scenes prematurely I was enthralled with this book. As a reader I found myself having a "movie" like experience.


Have you listened to any of Gary Tiedemann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator did throw me off at first, but I adjusted rather quiclky and enjoyed it.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My favoriate scene was when the ghost child climbes into the bed with Liz and askes "why did my daddy kill me?".

Any additional comments?

Well told. Really creepy, but not heavy-handed. The creepiest parts are when the family isn't quite sure what's going on. One of my favorite parts about this book is Moore's inspiration. He writes that this story is based on experiences he had in one of his childhood homes. Sure, this is fiction and obviously fleshed out to be a complete haunted house story, but thinking about some of the things that Joey (the child) saw and heard as coming from the author's memory gives this an added level of fright for the reader.
