    For over 20 years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mt. Everest of haunted houses, its shadowed walls have witnessed scenes of unimaginable horror and depravity. All previous attempts to probe its mysteries have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity.

    But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

    Phebe says: "Hell House is like Hill House, but fiercer"
    "Hell House is a hell of a tale!"
    Overall

    Richard Matheson is a master of subtlety! Hell House invites you into its' madness and doesn't release you to the very end. As the characters approach the house, the feeling of doom is almost palpable. Matheson's proficiency at weaving simile and metaphor to tingle your spine is genius. The author wrote a masterpiece of horror without having to revert to gore instead relying on imagery a craft Matheson's knows all to well.

    Story

    Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, the lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House.

    Carl Cravens says: "Different, but good."
    "The Haunting is flawed!"
    Overall

    This story is silly! How the author thought that a person talking to herself who come across at pure horror is beyond me. However, i regress. The story is not the issue. The issue is the author's lack of imagination to make your skin crawl. Not once did I feel afraid nor was I able to imagine a sense of dread or foreboding. This is a must-NOT read!

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Snoodely says: "Intelligent, spooky thriller"
    ""Fever" How Befitting!"
    Overall

    Fever Dream, the most recent in a long list of Preston and Child books featuring "hypocrite lecture" Special Agent Pendergast doesnt' disappoint! The story unveils at a "feverish" pace with all of the expected twists and turns, peak and valleys! BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE....Preston and Child delve finally into the pysche of Special Agent Pendergast peeling off layer by layer the hurt and the tragedy that is himself, Agent Pendergast....revealing more RELEVANCE on what fuels the agents "motos operandi" since the Diogonese series. Fever Dream is a must read, however, to truly appreciate its significance on must read the previous Pendergast books. Readers who choose to ignore the suggestions will not be let down, though. Preston and Child season the story with enough background info the make sure the reader is not lost.
