Publisher's Summary

They are dying, one by one. Wealthy, middle-aged women in an exclusive Connecticut suburb. Their murderer remains at large. Nora Chancel, wife of publishing scion Davey Chancel, fears she may be next. After all, her past has branded her a victim.... Then Davey tells Nora a surreal story about the Hellfire Club, where years before he met an obsessed fan of Chancel House's most successful book, Night Journey - a book that has a strange history of its own.
Suddenly terror engulfs Nora: She must defend herself against fantastic accusations even as a madman lies in wait. And when he springs, she will embark on a night journey that will put her victimhood to rest forever, dead or alive....

Whaaaaaaat?

What was most disappointing about Peter Straub’s story?

It sounded more like a comedy, except for the graphic rape scene.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He sounded like Scrappy (Scooby-doo's owner)!!!!

Any additional comments?

Very disappointed! Thriller?! Nah!

Please, don't buy this!

Would you try another book from Peter Straub and/or Patrick Lawlor?

I have read other Peter Straub that I enjoyed, otherwise I would say NO!

What do you think your next listen will be?

How do I know?

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was nasal, flat and emotionless. Absolutely the wrong voice for the story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All the above. The men were horrible abusive misogynists, the women were weak, damaged, and way to willing to put up these horrible men.

Any additional comments?

This is not something I would expected from Peter Strab.
