Pain, horror, fear - these are the things that have comprised best-selling novelist Lance Metzger's life. His childhood remains a riddled wasteland of abuse by a sadistic father and abandonment by an apathetic mother. In turn his only refuge became his writing.
When Lance loses his ability to write and becomes haunted by a nightmare that he'd thought was buried, he is drawn inexplicably to a house on the shores of Lake Superior, where he finds his muse once again - but something is waiting for him when he arrives. Now he must unlock the devastating secrets that the house holds and uncover the mystery of his own broken past before he loses his sanity - and perhaps his soul.

Love the story loved the intertwining plot and ending was amazing. The Gore was unnecessary and seem to just take up pages. Otherwise a good story and I'm very glad I got it
The first three chapters were the best. hard to become more intense after that. Ending came fast and a little loose, but nothing terrible. A few loose ends I don't think tied. loved how the tired his lineage to the beginning chapters.
But picks up around chapter three. A bit more horror than I usually like but the was a great ghost story! One that mingles history with resolution, the way all good ghost stories should be.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
This is the best horror novel that I have read in ages! It is perfect!
Should be a classic ghost thriller. This is one of Hart's best books. I highly recommend it to those who love scary ghost stories.
I work from home, and love audiobooks to keep me on track, I'm super ADHD, and this was the ticket. I didn't want to stop working so I could just keep listening. Thanks for the great story. Well done! And - the narrator was spot on!
Complex, dark with good denouement
Yest it was captivating.
Enjoyed this story very much. It did an extremely good job of character development and tied it all together very nicely while including some very intense and gory descriptions that were essential to the story line.
"An excellent listen"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A good plot, and good characters. I felt the narrator did an excellent job keeping the suspense all the way through.
