Hildreth House isn't like other mansions. One warm night in early spring, 14 people entered Hildreth House's labyrinthine halls to partake in diabolical debauchery. When the orgy was over, the slaughter began. The next morning, 13 of the revelers were found naked and butchered. Dismembered. Mutilated. But the 14th body was never found. The screams have faded and the blood has dried, but the house remains - watching.
Now five very special people have dared to enter the infamous house of horrors. Who - or what - awaits them? And who will live to tell Hildreth House's ghastly secrets?

Or even anyone who doesn't like endless, graphic descriptions of sex with emphasis on S&M, ritualized murder, and debasement of women. I love haunted house stories and even horror stories but not stories enshrining sexual perversion & death. Haunted house stories usually involve sex at some point but this book is only about sex and demonic rituals. Overall, it was a yawn. Not scary. The horror is all about shocking (and titillating) the reader with perverse sex, death, & demons.
The narrator was not bad at straight narration but I didn't care for his character voices. His male voices mostly sounded like old men or foreigners but were not terrible. His female voices were pretty terrible although I give him points for trying. It can't be easy imitating voices of the opposite sex.
Overall, I rate the book as only 'fair.' The Legend of Hell House is a far better book in a similar vein; on the other hand, I did listen till the end.
This book grabbed me from the beginning and kept me interested throughout. It had just enough to keep me hanging on. Good story.
I've read and enjoyed several Edward Lee books, but this was my first audiobook by the author. I found it excellent from start to finish. There have been some of his books that were too graphic for me to finish, not this one though. The story, character development and narration were all well done. I'm hoping that in the near future even more of Lee's works will be available on audible.
There was nothing scary about this book. In fact it was pretty boring.
Probably not. I heard this was one of his best books. If that's the case, I'm not impressed.
ANyone who didn't make characters sound like hokey cartoon characters.
If you want a good, old school haunted house book, check out Hell House. It's the story this one was ripped off from.
Yes. It is a well performed book
Never read any before

This was a good little story,but not as good as i expected,lots of sexual graphic scenes,a kind of mystery suspense story with a twist or too.
You will find yourself wondering who you can trust!!!
But not great either. Hell house is a better example of the haunted house genre and having a lead character who is thick is a bit irritating. Nevertheless, its worth a punt if you are running out of horror options...
In summary...its a fairly descent but by no means amazing, gory, haunted house horror with the usual Edward Lee Satanic twist.
Some sort of mass killing Manson party occurs at a millionaire's house. Various psychics, mediums and reporters are brought in to discover what actually happened.
