Publisher's Summary

From Edgar nominee F. R. Tallis comes a new novel of psychological suspense that reinvents the classic haunted-house tale.
In the scorching summer of 1976 - the hottest since records began - Christopher Norton, his wife Laura, and their young daughter Faye settle into their new home in north London.
The faded glory of the Victorian house is the perfect place for Norton, a composer of film soundtracks, to build a recording studio of his own. But soon in the long, oppressively hot nights, Laura begins to hear something through the crackle of the baby monitor. First, a knocking sound. Then come the voices.
For Norton, the voices mark an exciting opportunity. Putting his work to one side, he begins the project of a lifetime - a grand symphony incorporating the voices - and becomes increasingly obsessed with one voice in particular... someone who is determined to make themselves heard.

Interesting premise, pay off was meh

When I read the summary, I thought this would be a really creepy ghost story similar to the Shining. It was not. The author didn't really utilize the titular voices well, pushing them to the sidelines to focus on two failing marriages. I'm not saying that it's a bad idea, but it wasn't done well. Any moment that could be seen as creepy just ended with no lasting impression, and all of the plots and subplots ended with no resolution. They just stopped.

As for the actual writing, the author went in too much depth at times, to the point that he listed all the steps to a man going to the bathroom. It never really worked and just slowed the story down even more than it already was. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this book

Where is the rest of the book?

I was so excited...then it ended. Without a resolution. So disappointed. Who was the ghost?
