Traveling back and forth in time, the listener is sucked up into every moment as the story reaches its thrilling climax. Miles captures and makes the most of each moment of terror and suspense like a guide who tells you only as much as you need to know. She also shows great skill as her voice switches from male to female, elderly Haitian woman to small-town Sheriff.
Overall, a story that would make any person squirm, but so engrossing you just can't help but listen.

Firstly, I was totally delighted wiith this narrator. Either she's a tremdous imitator of different voices, or she got a split personality, each personality taking on a different character in the story. Had me totally engrossed from beginning to end. The story itself is so well written that, before the tale had even ended, I came to Audible looking for another book by this author, or something else read by this narrator. Well worth the money, and a steal using a book credit. READ IT!

An absolutely terrifying read, made so by how well the author "fleshes out" her characters.
I have loved horror type fiction since the mid sixties, and I've read everything, or so I thought.
This author is definitely right up there with Big Steve and Dean. I would rate "The Good House" as in my Top Ten of favorite stories of all my reading/listening.
It is one of those books that you want more when it is finished. Everything is in 3D, and the book 'flows' very well. Nowhere does the listener think, "oh come on, that doesn't fit, no one would do THAT". Everything fits. Every character does what he or she does because it fits the situation. It flows, from situation to situation. From scene to scene. It is very, very well done.
The reader/narrator is perfect for this story, too.
Whether you are new to the genre, or a spoiled oldtime reader like me, I recommend this audiobook.
It does not get gross, don't worry about that, if you don't like blood and gore. She does not "go for the grossout" as Stephen King once said of 'doing whatever it takes to scare you'.
She does not have to resort to that.
Miss Due is just plain deeply chilling, very believable, and deeply enjoyable.
