Publisher's Summary

There's something in the house on Kenwood Drive, and it only comes out at night...
College students Eric and Lydia are looking for a novel way to spend Halloween. They decide to put together a documentary about the supernatural and take a camcorder into the long-abandoned house on Kenwood Drive. It's said that a vengeful spirit lives there, and Lydia thinks it the perfect location.
Eric, though, has his reservations. Having grown up in the area, he's familiar with the stories of the spirit they call the "Upside-Down Man", and as their trip to the house draws near, his fear begins to mount. According to the rumors, once you go into the house, you bring the Upside-Down Man out with you. And in three days' time, you disappear.
When the two of them begin to see and experience strange things, they launch into a frenzied search for truth, attempting to separate the myth of Kenwood House from the reality. But it turns out that untangling the threads of local legend is more difficult than it appears.
Especially when you've only got three days.

Good, spooky story

Any additional comments?

This was a good story that gave me what I expected - young adults behaving the way they do in horror movies, mysterious deaths, scary tension, a sense that the clock is ticking. Some readers were dissatisfied by the ending, but the only qualm I had about the ending was 'why not upside down'? (anything more about that question here would be a spoiler). I could easily see this play out in a movie, which was what I was looking for when I started listening to the book.

I've listened to Joe Hempel narrations before and I think he does best when the hero character matches his voice and tone; here, it did. I could easily picture our hero the way the author described and consistently with the narrator's tone of voice.

I wouldn't want the story to last any longer than it did; it was a good horror fix and I was interested to see how it would end...

I provided this review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

Loved It!!!! Hooked from beginning to end!!!

Any additional comments?

From the very first chapter I was hooked! Very scary stuff. I actually had a very bad toothache the couple days I was listening to the book. But not once during the book did I think of it or anything else except the story. It held my complete attention the whole time. If you like haunted house stories this is for you. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick scare. I was given this book by the author for an honest review in return.
