Floating Staircase | [Ronald Malfi]

Floating Staircase

Following the success of his latest novel, Travis Glasgow and his wife Jodie buy their first house in the seemingly idyllic western Maryland town of Westlake. At first, everything is picture perfect—from the beautiful lake behind the house to the rebirth of the friendship between Travis and his brother, Adam, who lives nearby. Travis also begins to overcome the darkness of his childhood and the guilt he’s harbored since his younger brother’s death—a tragic drowning veiled in mystery that has plagued Travis since he was 13.

Publisher's Summary

Following the success of his latest novel, Travis Glasgow and his wife Jodie buy their first house in the seemingly idyllic western Maryland town of Westlake. At first, everything is picture perfect—from the beautiful lake behind the house to the rebirth of the friendship between Travis and his brother, Adam, who lives nearby. Travis also begins to overcome the darkness of his childhood and the guilt he’s harbored since his younger brother’s death—a tragic drowning veiled in mystery that has plagued Travis since he was 13.

Soon, though, the new house begins to lose its allure. Strange noises wake Travis at night, and his dreams are plagued by ghosts. Barely glimpsed shapes flit through the darkened hallways, but strangest of all is the bizarre set of wooden stairs that rises cryptically out of the lake behind the house. Travis becomes drawn to the structure, but the more he investigates, the more he uncovers the house’s violent and tragic past, and the more he learns that some secrets cannot be buried forever.

    Story
    "A Little Horror, A Little Mystery, A Little Ghost"

    Ronald Malfi writes a horror/mystery that is worth a credit. It got my attention on page one, and held my attention throughout. There were good twists that eventually weave together for a well delivered novel. The Floating Staircase is the story of a man who is haunted throughout adulthood for a moment of carelessness as a child, and a haunting that finally grants him the redemption he very much deserves.

    Story
    "Interesting, worth the download"
    Would you try another book from Ronald Malfi and/or Monty Lewis Sauerwein?

    Yes, I would.


    Did Monty Lewis Sauerwein do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, although the female voices were a bit distracting.


    Any additional comments?

    This book falls almost into the category of murder mystery rather than haunting, although it is both, really.

    Any additional comments?

    Some creepy bits but mainly very unremarkable. Call me demanding but I need some at least slightly believable reason for the weirdness. This book has two mysteries ie the one about the little boy who lived in the the house and two what happened to the main protagonist's little brother. First one is answered in depth, the second one, unless I fell asleep and missed it, not so much.........WHY?! Stephen King it isn't!
