His life has been shattered by events beyond his control and regret is his constant companion. His wife is gone, lost to an unbeatable cancer. His son has been mentally and physically handicapped by a tragic accident. He's been fired for using company funds in a failed attempt to save his wife's life.
On a whim, Evan accepts an invitation to housesit on a picturesque island in northern Minnesota. At first it seems like the perfect second chance for he and his son to recover and rebuild their life together. But there is something very, very wrong with the house and all that occupies it.
And worst of all, Evan doesn't know if the house is haunted...

A well done supernatural chiller

Any additional comments?

After his wife succumbs to cancer, Evan and his son Shaun take a sabbatical to recuperate while housesitting at a friend’s place on a small island in Minnesota. Unfortunately, while the seclusion is good for Evan’s writing and for getting some time with his son, they soon realize that they are not entirely alone. Ghosts of the past resurface and have set their sights on Evan and Shaun. With the help of a pretty psychiatrist they will need to track down the history of the place and solve its mysteries before all of them are lost forever.

The narration for this one was very good and the pacing was perfect for the story line and really added to the creepy, dark atmosphere. The characterization was well thought out and the relationship between father and son was spot on. There were also a few twists that I didn’t see coming and I thought they were smartly done and not clichéd as they may have been with a lesser storyteller. A well done supernatural chiller.

Started Out Promising but Fizzled Out...

The main characters were well rounded and interesting and good suspense in the beginning then it seemed like Hart lost interest in his own book somewhere in the middle... all that character building and suspense goes nowhere then the end is a mess of confusion and ridiculousness. I had to listen to the last couple of hours at least 3 times to "get it" and all I got was a feeling of disappointment and annoyance.
