Publisher's Summary

From newcomer Jordan Crouch and Blake Crouch, author of the runaway best seller Run, comes Eerie, a chilling, gothic thriller in the classic tradition of The Shining and The Sixth Sense.

Trapped inside a house

On a crisp autumn evening in 1980, seven-year-old Grant Moreton and his five-year-old sister Paige were nearly killed in a mysterious accident in the Cascade Mountains that left them orphans.

With a frightening power

It's been 30 years since that night. Grant is now a detective with the Seattle Police Department and long estranged from his sister. But his investigation into the bloody past of a high-class prostitute has led right to Paige's door, and what awaits inside is beyond his wildest imagining.

Over anyone who enters

His only hope of survival and saving his sister will be to confront the terror that inhabits its walls, but he is completely unprepared to face the truth of what haunts his sister's brownstone.

    Story
    "Very very strange"

    I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this book, but it's just so odd. In typical Crouch fashion, he reroutes you in the middle of the story to a direction you didn't see coming. But it's almost like someone wrote the first half of the book and another person wrote the other half. Unlike his other books, you can't really imagine "what if this really did happen?" Instead I found myself thinking, "did they go back and add the father character at the last minute just so they could use the
    ending they wanted?"

    Story
    "Probably would work better as a cable mini-series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would turn it into a cable mini-series. In the novel format, I had trouble staying interested. None of the characters really resonated nor did I have a sense of the world the story took place in but as an episodic television show there are plenty of places to leave the viewer with cliffhanger. In the right hands, this property would be better in the visual media.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made this a smaller subplot in a bigger world. A building block of a larger story instead of a story within itself.


    What does Karen Chilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was a very good voice actress for this story. Her voices were distinct enough most of the time that I knew who was speaking.


    Was Eerie worth the listening time?

    It was okay. If you are a fan of some of Blake Crouch's other work, you're probably going to want to listen to this one no matter what the reviews are but I would say this is a lesser Crouch work.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was interesting enough, if this is your first Blake Crouch novel you might enjoy it more but after reading Pines and the Thicker Than Blood trilogy, there isn't enough world creation that I look for in my fiction.
